It does what it says ... and very well.,

This review is from: Learning to See Creatively (Paperback)
This is a very good book that encourages the photographer to carefully consider composition. It also has very helpful sections about why certain images work - such as the use of thirds, golden sections, S-shaped images, why the use of the right side is more effective than the left, looking for colour before composition etc.
The criticism made by bomanjee below that this is a good introductory guide for children only is totally uncalled for and ridiculous.
If there is a criticism, it's that the pictures are sometimes poorly reproduced - grainy, lacking sharpness and the colours are muted. I think this is a result of the printing which is a bit cheap. But the ideas the book discusses are invaluable.
