The book has little or nothing to do with David Hobby he does not even provide a blurb at the start like he did the other one.
The book is about the same size as a book of postcards.
I would certainly prefer the pictures outlined and explained be presented Straight Out of Camera, rather than post - processed (and sometimes heavily - I believe). PP alters some key features in a picture (e.g. contrast, color, brightness, highlight to shadow transits, textures etc) that making the deciphering of the actual effect of the lighting setup on the picture rather difficult.
