This book is direct, to the point and that makes the book engaging for me. I have viewed other photography books and was disappointed because the author(s) added a lot of unnecessary fluff . I love the book and will NOT lend it out.

I went through this book , figuring it like all other books that tell you about ' How to become a Photographer' No, not here. This one really comes fully equipped. Read the first pages and I already felt I learned from it.
