This is a great book, it picks up where the Canon Owners Manual leaves off. It answers all of your "how to" and "why" questions. Also gives a lot of good advice from an expert. For G12 owners I would also recomment David Busch's "Canon Powershot G12" book - another winner.
A great reference book that explains not only the features of the camera but also why to use certain settings. I learned a great deal about photography and about this specific camera.The book did not get five stars because I did not a few editorial issues mostly in illustrations being incorrectly labeled or referenced.
