A good general introduction to digital photography, similar in content to one of the author's other books: The Digital Photographer's Handbook.

Lately, I have read a few digital photography books as I'm trying to hone my amateur skills. This, by far, is the best book I have come across to date. There is information that covers every aspect of digital photography, including editing, different cameras, different lenses, and more.
This book is a must have for any photography enthusiast!
