Appears to be a standard text modified for whatever camera you have. I havent found it a great deal of use as it seems to be pitched at somebody who has already owned a dslr camera and thus if you know how one works why buy this?
It may be its just me but I prefer a guide to break me in slowly using one feature at a time and building upon that and this just doesn`t happen. Rather its a collection of chapters that appear well written but without knowledge of the basics and references to point you to the relevent page if you have forgotten something it had me scratching my head. It is after all a field guide.
I think this book is a bit more readable, and less experienced photographers would welcome browsing through this to get an outline view of the facilities, and then perhaps refer to the Canon manual to confirm the detail. It is also very useful to have another book around the house - in the dining room or loo, perhaps? I guess I am not the only one who oftens misfiles a manual and waste time trying to find it - in most cases this book would have answered my question easily.
So whilst not essential, if you are a keen user, well worth having this around.
