There were some elementary errors in it. For example a lens at F2.8 lets in twice as much light as a lens at F 4, rather than four times as the book states. The coverage of sports other than football, baseball and basketball was extremely superficial - just a paragraph or two. Also many photos were unsharp and just not that good. I can look at the Washington Post's sports section any day and see better photos. There was hardly any discussion of using the capabilities of modern professional cameras, which was something I was very interested in. This book may be useful for high school students thinking about going into photography, but does not have much for someone who is familiar with general photography.
It appears that Mr. Arndt put together a small collection of 1970's photos on a whim and jotted a couple lines of useless information to accompany them. One example is his suggestion to wear non-slip shoes when taking photographs at swim meets. No suggestion on technique or composition, just the shoe advice. The only sports covered in any detail at all were baseball and football, with just a few helpful tips for the most inexperienced photographers.
The only section of this book which I found to be vaguely informative was the chapter on the legalities of selling pictures. Too bad there was not enough information on picture taking to allow one to reach the selling stage.
One redeeming quality would have been the few full-page color photos included, however these were all either out of focus or just poorly printed. Please do yourself a favor and spend the 25 bucks on a few rolls of film.
