Great content but small and flimsy - go for the hardcover, 27 Dec 2010
I own quite a few books on portrait photography, and threw the paperback version of this book in my basket on a whim. It's certainly cheap enough, and I hadn't noticed there was also a hardcover.
The content of this book is fantastic. It's a great collection of portraits, and I appreciated the short texts that accompany them. But the print in the paperback is so ridiculously small that it's often hard to read. And the binding flimsy and prone to cracking - don't try to lay the book spread open too flat. I got back on Amazon the next day and found the hardcover version of this book, which I will buy and then I'll give away the paperback to someone.
tl;dr - If you like this kind of content, it's worth paying extra for the (larger) hardcover edition.
