As with most Nat Geo products, the writing is superb and the images are lovely, but it simply doesn't live up to it's title or promise.
A book such as this gives a thorough background into photography in an easily digestible form for the beginning student. It flows well, is understandable and gives a beginner tips as to the artistry. These tips and rules should be expounded upon by the student to further their understanding. Practical experience and further, more focused and detailed books should be studied once the basics (including this book) are out of the way.
