""Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs" is the perfect quick reference for photographers to toss in their camera bag for a bit of inspiration and reminder of the basics." - "GeekDad" --GeekDad
"If you want really solid advice on how to 'see' great images unfold in front of you, then this should be on your wish list by now." - Digital SLR Photography "An easy-to-follow guide to how to take a decent photo, this systematic and at times humorous book introduces you to everything from basic camera functions, such as aperture and exposure, to more nebulous ideas about the 'perfection of imperfection', using Robert Capa's blurry D-Day landing shots as an example. Wonderfully illustrated throughout." - Royal Photographic Society "Henry Carroll's superb new book takes some beating, thanks to its combination of clear, no-nonsense tips, and iconic images from some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century." - Photography Week --Photography Week

The bit that concerned me was that the author is worryingly dismissive of 'manual' mode. Whilst I agree that it's perhaps a bit too complex if you're just starting out, I would not go as far to say that it's, and I quote, "a complete waste of time."
Overall this is a decent little book and it has given me some good ideas, as well as firming up my grasp on the technical aspects of photography. The section on the artistic side or "seeing" as the author puts it, could have done with being a bit longer but was good food for thought nevertheless.
Whether it will indeed allow me to take great photographs is yet to be seen, but it has definitely given me a good handle on the basics of photography.
Plainly put with no bullsh*t. If you have a DSLR and don't know how to use it, buy this book immediately!
Important to note - this is more appropriate for digital photographers than film photographers. Much of what is described relates to digital functions. I shoot film so not everything was relevant.
