The book is heavy for its size - a bit too heavy, I fear, for the average camera bag. Despite this minor drawback, even as an experienced photographer I found it very useful. It is well laid-out and full of practical tips and excellent examples showing the reader what can be achieved by anyone with a serious attitude towards photography. "Digital photographer" is not a synonym for "dabbler". Take the content of this book onboard and do your camera justice! A very good buy, even at the undiscounted UK price.
