I was a bit disappointed with this book.
There is nothing wrong with in the sense that if you don't known how to use the camera, it will help you.
But you will not become a better photographer by reading it.
For me it is lacking some tips to take great shoot, and example.
This book is good to know how to operate the camera, but does not tell you which setting to use for this or that shoot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful. 23 Jun 2013
By Ashmo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am new to DSLR photography and, having just bought a 60d, I felt more than a little anxious about using my new camera. This book has given me the confidence to get to grips with it. It's reassuring to know that I have it on hand for future guidance. For me, it is a great purchase, but I think it would be good for anyone who wants a thorough schooling in the many features that the 60d has to offer.

I bought this for my son in law as my daughter had bought him the Cannon for his birthday. So I have no first hand experience of using this book. However, he says he has found it very useful while he gains experience with the camera.
