This review is from: Nikon D3100 For Dummies (Paperback)
I was never a fan of the "For Dummies" books. Previous ones I have read have been difficult reading because of the way they tried too hard to be 'down with the kids'. I hated all the 'Cool' references etc, so this was not my first choice manual. However, I own a Kindle and one of the advantages of the Kindle is you can download free samples of books. I sampled all the Nikon D3100 manuals and compared them. To my surprise, this one appeared to be head and shoulders above the others so I took the plunge and ordered the bound copy.
I have not regretted my choice. The author knows her subject and has resisted the pressure to write in the standard "For Dummies" style. The other thing I like about the book is that it refers specifically to the Nikon D3100 throughout. Other similar books revert to generic 'technique' chapters after the early chapters.
All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this book.
