First I bought the paperback for $113 with MyArtsLab which was of no use to me because I couldn't participate with MyArtsLab because it can only be accessed in you are enrolled in a college class that is participating in this program. Thankfully for me Barnes & Noble took my return. So then I ordered the online version without the My Arts Lab for $77 which is a disappointment because you need a very large screen to view the book properly because it was designed for you to view opposite pages simultaneously which is hard to do on a laptop. The worst part is many images that would have been available in the paperback are not included in the online version making those examples useless to the learning process. There is an apology though saying they are sorry for the inconvenience. Why not just use appropriate images that can be used on the internet. There was no way for me to know any of this from the descriptions of the book. This should be a 5 star book and probably is for those who can use the MyArtsLab experience with it. As an online option it should be clarified that the best use is with a large screen and that there are missing images that complete the explanations.

If I had known that the Nook Study eTextbook reader app was NOT available for iPad, I would NOT have purchased this eTextbook. I mistakenly believed that since there was a Nook app for iPad that this book would be readable on it. Apparently I've been spoiled by the primary big book site I use (on which this title was not available). I had an earlier revision physical copy of this book, which I sold so I could buy the newer version. I did not fully read the Nook "STUDY" eTextbook fine print, and now I am stuck with this book which I can only read on TWO of my computers (there are several computers and laptops in my family's household). I am kicking myself on almost a daily basis for spending the money on this useless digital text and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BUY THE PHYSICAL COPY if you are looking at purchasing this book. This is one of THE GREATEST books about photography, for college students or lifelong learners. My review is not about this book itself, but about the wholly flawed delivery mechanism. PROS: Great book, excellent content. A must-have for any photography education. CONS: Terrible/AWFUL ebook reader application Overly restrictive in working with content and unable to read on iPad
