Bit unsatisfactory and now dated,
This review is from: Mastering Digital Photography (Paperback)
The intent is good - to put unnecessary technical details at the back, and follow the book like a photographer not a computer user. But cameras are moving on so fast that the book doesn't really answer your questions if you have a good modern camera. There's no treatment of on-camera HDR, for example, and pros-cons of changing your ISO settings (auto/manual), or bracketing by ISO versus by exposure (both giving visibly similar results).
Heavy discussion about spot metering, versus matrix that seems bit outdated given how smart 'matrix' meters are from the leading manufacturers. Was this book just cut and pasted from previous works, as I still found a reference to how film handled a shot? Perhaps strongest part is extensive sections on post-processing.
So overall, more an OK book on photography and less good on the digital part.
