This book is fantastically well-written. Well-organized and
concise, it gives the beginner wheels to get rolling, with enough
advanced content to grow into. I like that T&C remember to
emphasize the art of photography, since it's easy to get lost in
the technical side. The book is a real gem, in that it teaches you
how to learn and how to think, in -- Brent "Northrup.photo"
"I'm the founder of photo.net (started in 1993), so I've seen a lot of photography tutorials. This might be my favorite so far in terms of density of practical information...A very functional book designed for busy people." -- Philip Greenspun "Amazon"
