There are some useful tips in this book, both practical and aesthetic. The theory is illustrated with good examples in the form of beautiful photographs.
From one point on, however, the book gets quite repetitive and you hardly read or learn anything new.

The guide seems to end up in no man's land. On one hand, it is too technical for people who don't intend to spend money on photographic equipment, and on the other hand too general for those who have the said equipment and presumably are already

I got this little book at my local library, and am glad since it was aimed at film photographers and I own a digital SLR. On the whole it was helpful. It wasn't awesome, but it is short. I can take "not awesome" in short doses.

It does earn bonus points for the inside cover being an 18% gray card. That was a nice little plus.

The pictures are pretty and some of the basic tips are good, but this book assumes you want to make photography a career. While it made me want to take a photography class to REALLY learn how to take pictures and develop film, the guide itself is a little too technical to really be enjoyable.
