Good information for commercial photographers but we do portraits and weddings with the occasional model. All the forms are just ok. We have most of them from another book that came with a CD.
I'll keep it just to have it in the library but I doubt I'll ever open it again.

I bought this book out of curiousity, I wasn't quite sure what type of photo buisness this book focuses on, but now I know (commericial). If you already subscribe to PDN magazine, then don't bother with this book, it has information we have seen a hundred times before. If you're an established (commericial) photographer who needs relavent info, then this might be useful.
I'm not an established photographer (nor do I want to do commerical work), but it's only been a couple years since I graduated with an imaging media degree - so for me this info was redundant. The perspective of the authors is from a photo buyer's/ad director point of view. I on the other hand have been doing weddings and portraits, which is a whole another animal of photography business.
It's not a horrible book, but the info can be obtained from my PDN mag subscription. Also, the 21 forms they provide, are once again good for someone who does commerical work, but are irrelavent to my work. I did enjoy the updated advise on what buyers want to see (website, vs. print campaign or both.)
I'm returning this and finding a book relating more to portrait and wedding photography business.
