This book is very comprehensive at covering the basics of photography, not just with an SLR camera. The author uses a very plain (if sometimes grammatically questionable) language, and is very good about explaining things. A bit much, I feel, are the Extras, Extras sections where the author takes a general photography detour into the outer orbits of image capture. Overall, easy to read, and a good beginners book. Nice touch: Hot tips, and things to watch out for.

Don't let the title fool you. This guide explains all the basics a beginner in photography may need, plus some extras. It has a chapter devoted to creative composition, film and many more ideas on how to improve your pictures. This book is for anyone who a) has just begun exploring the world of photography b) the amateur photographer who wishes to improve his or her pictures. Also, it's for anyone to keep as a great reference.
