Book is old, yes, it¿s old. Photos are shot no later then early 80¿s. Besides they are 20-30 years old, almost all photos are shot with low speed Agfa slide film. It¿s not fair, is it? I mean how many of you (us) shoot with slide films? Book tells about everything but too little information on each topic, one page fro each topic. Dedicating only two pages (out of 420) to exposure is not what good photography book gives you, does it? Whatever is given, is given from technical point of view, not an artistic approach. Book can be useful for someone who¿s making first steps in photography. Book is for basic knowledge, ABC¿s or even DEF¿s of photography. I was looking something like PQR¿s ¿ wrong pick. I have to admit there are one or two nifty tricks explained, but that¿s it. If you¿re advanced amateur (no talk about pros) forget about this book. If you¿re beginner pick it and after squeezing all juices of it, give it to someone else, like I gave it to my wife. Good luck!
