The book is divided into sections, the first of which is a very general introduction to the hardware available.
The book's real strength is the next 120 odd pages which deal with the composition of photographs - there are some excellent tips, and a wide range of techniques to help a beginner improve their camera work. A more experience photographer may find some of the explanations simplistic, though.
The last part of the book deals with computers - the editing, manipulating, sharing and storing of photos. This is the area I enjoyed least, as it seemed somewhat dated for a book with a publication date of 2011. A simple example of this is in the illustrations of software, which featured Photoshop Elements 4, which dates back to 2005.
All in all, a good book at a reasonable price.
