The first thing that strikes you about this general photography book by Tom Ang is the high quality photography and quality feel of the book itself. It is easy to read, mainly because there aren't that many words on each page!. This is essentially a book for beginner to intermediate photographers, looking for general tips and advice. You wont find technical discussions of aperture, depth of field or ISO here - in fact a digital SLR is probably not even required, as most of the advice would work for a good quality 'point & shoot' camera. What it does give you is advice on taking photos of most likely absolutely everything you can think of, that is certainly no exaggeration.
Starting with photography and camera basics, before moving on to large sections by subject, the book is cover to cover with good quality photos illustrating each bit of advice.
People, Landscapes, Animals, Architecture and Events are covered in depth, among others. Help with such varied artistic techniques such as light trails, kirlian photography, reflection, space photography, and considering textures and patterns is also presented, with even pages on promoting a business, selling on ebay, and photos to help sell your car!.
Overall, this is not a book which covers anything in any depth, and as such is mainly for beginners as mentioned before. It is however cover to cover with great photos and small snippets of advice on taking pictures of absolutely everything. As a beginners source book and inspiration for every kind of situation or subject imaginable, it is probably in a league of its own, and there are few photographers that wouldn't learn at least something from this book.
