The content in this book is *so* good. Seriously. It starts off by providing a map with keys to help you connect the content further on in the book to it's geographic location, and then it moves on to give detailed descriptions of all these different locations along with the time of year they're likely to be at their best. The second part of the book goes into detail about Yosemite as it changes month to month. And then finally, it ends with this incredible primer on everything digital landscape photography, from file format to the characteristics of different types and directions of light.

So the content is an absolute gem, as I saw it described in another review. However, the printing leaves a lot to be desired. The book itself is pretty small and the binding is very stiff, making it annoying to thumb through. It's one of those books that will spring shut unless you're really holding the page. Some of the pictures are so small they look like thumbnails.

Overall, I love it and can't recommend it strongly enough. I just wish it was larger and on higher quality paper. I actually recommend this book to friends simply planning to visit Yosemite since the descriptions and visuals are so good. It really gives you an idea of what to expect and plan for.

The info in this book if fine. But the production of the book itself makes it very hard to read. Its perfect bound and the margins aren't wide enough in the spine, making it hard to keep the book open let alone read it. Its also very small in size which isn't ideal when trying to view nice photos in detail.

Good guide and excellent starting point for places to go. Especially good for non-hikers to know how far to a particular vista. Could have offered a few ideas for camera settings. I am an experimenter by nature so it didn't matter but, others new to the DSLR world and landscape photography might find it interesting.

Just started reading it a few days ok. Really like, it, concise, good information, helping me a great deal to plan my photo expedition to Yosemite. Extreme negative of the book is that it is printed, bound in China. Once you open the book and start reading it, the binding will break and pages start to fall out. Horrible book binding. I had to take scotch tape to hold the pages in.

If you're going to Yosemite, this is an excellent guide to point you to some of the best locations to get great images of this magnificent park. I especially like the section which discusses seasonal differences in shooting for photographers.

Well written book that hits all the high points and must see places in the park. I also appreciated that the book tells you what places are good to visit based on the time of the day as well as the time of the year. I planned most of my day based on this book. Only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that after the end of the first day multiple pages were falling out. I had not abused the book at all. I ended up buying another copy in the gift shop since I lost a couple pages and the second book held up just fine.
