I purchased this book over the weekend. It was very helpful and easily layout for beginners. I had taken a photography class at the local commujity college and this book re-inforced what I learned. I was able to go at my own pace to refresh my memory. I take pictures as a hobby. I am pleased with the book would recommend taking a semster of photography course at your local commity college if its offered this will give you a better understanding of the workings of the camera.
