Superb for beginners and handy for a refresher, too

Dorling Kindersley has earned a justifiably good reputation for producing excellent books, and this is no exception.
The text is well-written, breaking down possibly daunting topics into simple, easy-to-follow steps. Even better, there are lots of photographs to illustrate the topics under discussion. After all, photography is a visual art; much better to have pictures which show "if you do X then the result is Y" rather than relying on dry and impenetrable words.
The book is written with Canon and Nikon users in mind (the largest market segment), but the instructions are easily adaptable to other makes of camera.
I would unhesitatingly recommend this book to anyone looking to get into photography.
