Nice book with some interesting thoughts from this veteran photographer. The technical advice is strictly for the professional or those with a lot of spare cash- Arca Swiss view cameras and Rodenstock lenses are his main tools and anything less than a full frame DSLR is considered unsuitable. The bits on photoshop are, by contrast, pretty superficial and rather amateurish - converging verticals corrected but other distortion not considered.
Some nice images though and good examples of other photographers' work. The only let down is the rather poor quality paper and pretty awful printing particularly the image on page 131 of my copy which is misaligned down the middle. It is only a paperback and fairly cheap but even so for a photographer who sets so much store by high quality work something of a disappointment.
The graphic design is also a little dated, but I'm being picky now. For the money not a bad book at all.
