5.0 out of 5 stars The pinnacle of quality photography, 18 Jun. 2001
This review is from: The Print (New Photo) (Paperback)
This one is perhaps the best of the trilogy - Ansel shows you how he managed to make prints that are (to me at least) perfect. The emphasis is on making the best technically proficient print, whilst at the same time never losing sight of the real aim - producing an image that shows the visualization you (hopefully) had, and that makes you completely happy. The trilogy is more easily digested with the books "Basic techniques of photography" (1 and 2): written by a friend of his with many of his photos, they are a more approachable way into his philosophy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful works, 15 May 2001
This review is from: Lectures on Physics (Hardcover)
Despite the age of these "lectures", the books convey the talent of its author(s) as modern masterminds. Although not best served as reference books, these lectures serve up almost any topic of physics in a self contained unit. You can pick them out for interest or for learning, and I've found them very useful in helping me understand physical concepts. The presentation is clear, and the quality of these hardback books is excellent. Every physicist should have one (and from what I gather, they usually do!)
