I guess this booklet--not enough material to call it a book--might be good for someone who is picking up a camera for the first time and wants something that he or she can read in 15 minutes.

I don't understand why this book is listed near the top of the amazon digital photography books when there are so many superb books on the amazon list.

This book consists of a limited number of basic tips on using flash and how to compose your pictures. Some are frighteningly basic. For instance, he suggests that you try to get candid pictures instead of asking your subjects to stare into the camera. He suggests you use natural lighting when possible. You should use a tripod to avoid camera shake.

There--that summmarizes the book. Now you don't need to buy it. I have saved you time and $2.99. You may now send me $3.99--that is for the cost I paid for the book and an extra dollar for saving you 15 minutes of your life.

I am a little surprised that all the previous 3 reviews are 5 star. Are we reading the same book? To me, the book is helpless at all.
The book contains 19 tips, each is about 4-5 sentences, so it is very short, I finished it within 5 minutes on my way home.
The title of the book is HOW TO MAKE GOOD PHOTOS: DIGITAL OR FILM. However, tips no.8,9,10,12,13,14 are talking about food photo shoot only. Maybe HOW TO MAKE GOOD PHOTOS:FOOD PHOTOGRAPH is a better choice for this book.
In Preface, the author says "the paragraphs summarize the work of photography experts". To me, it is more likely that he copy words and advice from other sources and paste together. I mean he did some CTRL-C CTRL-V without his own composing at all. So you would find Some tips are nearly same meaning. Tips 1: Get Close and Tip 11: Move in Close; Tip 3: Use Natural Light and Tip: 10 Lighting(which has 2 sentences only, the first sentence is "Try to take food photographs with natural light.")
Tips 1-8 are the basic rules, then tips 8-14 are mainly emphasis on food photograph, tips 15-21 changed to normal photograph again. To me, most tips are the basic of the basic. They are tips for making photos, not making GOOD photos.
In all, I don't think this book is worth to read. If you want to learn how to make good photos, try other books. Maybe the manual of your camera is more useful than this book.

Had some good starter tips for beginners, but mostly I think beginners should just go out and shoot take lots of pictures and now how to use their camera in aperture and shutter modes.
