If you're after an advanced technical guide to things like lighting, lenses, pacing etc then this book is probably not for you.
It is however a really useful read if you're looking to understand shot ideas such as dealing with dialogue, in-car, love, suspense, danger, shock/horror scenes and so on.
Need to shoot a character through a window frame? Need to emphasize a moment of drama? Need to film someone walking besides a car having a conversation with the driver? Capture that perfect on-screen kiss? It's got it covered- even down to less obvious things like exits & entrances, building up to arguments, handing off motion between characters etc.
The text is quite explanatory, friendly, and easy to follow and is written like you are listening to an experienced director explaining the shots to you-what they're used for, how to achieve them, and what to look out for.
The book includes b&w real world example reference pictures and an explanation of the shot technique, but you would have to look at the back of the book to find out which films the examples came from.
All in all, this might initially feel like a rather simplistic book but as you read through it, its usefulness and professionalism shine through.
