I was dubious about purchasing this book having read some mixed reviews on Amazon.com. As a beginner to macro/close up photography I found this book very helpful, and it has given me some ideas to get me started. Perhaps an experienced macro photographer would find the book lacking in technical detail, but as an introductory text I don't think you could hope for better at the price. Finally, I was delighted to confirm that when I downloaded the book to the desktop Kindle on my PC, and also to my iPod Touch, all of the photos were in glorious colour.

The book contains very little useful information. It does go through the list of most of the types of equipment that is available but, there is nothing on how to use it. Nothing on things that can go wrong and how to correct for them. What there is is a library of photographs, each having a brief description, but again, nothing about how he took them.
As somebody else said, if you have the technical knowledge needed to take the camera out of its bag, you probably won't learn very much.

This book is a total waste of space. Given that he allegedly tutors in photography, this book teaches you nothing, even if you are a total beginner and do not know yet how to take your camera out of your bag. I would sue him if I ever subscribed to any live courses.

He gets to the point with the methods and the photographs are wonderful illustrations of what can be achieved if one makes the effort. Contrary to many books on macro photography, you come away from this one really keen to get going on this new world of photographs.

A reasonable quick read for those interested in macro. The author gives some good tips about shooting all kinds of macro shots as well as the nature aspect. I did not like the fact that the book was split showing the same photographs for the nature section and thought that this nature text could have been included with the original photo and shooting method text. I did like the fact that when reading on Kindle Fire HD if you double tap the photographs you get a slightly larger view ,with grey background, allowing a better look. If you are a beginner to macro then I would say the book is worth the money. There are better books with better macro examples, but I find myself going back to this one to brush up on particular techniques and for ideas.

Not the best, but if you are new to macro it will offer some ideas, not a riveting read, I reckon it does however offer value for money and remains in my cloud for reference.

I wanted some tips on macro photography and bought this book. I have learned a lot from it and have taken some good photos because of it.

Quite short on tangible macro photography tips, too often too vague/general, and definitely too much on his fascination with nature.
