"This fully-illustrated and educational book is full of tips; it offers to go behind the scenes with top photographers and learn to design more eye-catching poses." —wonderpedia.wetpaint.com
"Lou Jacobs Jr. takes you on a journey not only around the country to meet various photographers who then explain in words and outstanding portraits about how they work and how they pose their subjects, but it’s also a tour of portrait genres, from classical portraiture to wedding to glamour." —Shutterbug

The book you get when downloading is "The Art of Posing" by Lou Jacobs.
BN's policy is not to refund once downloaded as it is the publishers fault, not BN's.
This book should be pulled until the content is corrected by the publisher.
I got a $10 gift card for my troubles.

This is a good book. The author has assembled eleven photographers who, in 10 chapters, discuss their approach to portrait photography. The various authors discuss the how and why of their approach to portraiture. The book is filled with photographs of young and old, female and male, single and group portraits. Images include both color and black and white photographs. Reviewing the images provides a gallery of posing suggestions. While there is discussion on the importance of lighting, if I were the author, I'd add a chapter specifically on lighting techniques generously illustrated with lighting diagrams. As an old Chinese philosopher said, "Seeing it once is better than being told one hundred times." This book is both interesting and educational. I will be recommending it to members of my class on composition.
