"With this book, John does not attempt to glorify or sugar-coat what it is REALLY like to be a news photographer. This leads to a much more introspective and interesting look into the behind-the-scenes world that most will never get to experience. I can see this book appealing to both photographers as well as everyday people who are interested in the details of what happens BEHIND the camera--not just in front of it." -- Vincent Laforet, Pulitzer Prize Winner and former New York Times staff photographer
"John Harrington's Photographs from the Edge of Reality is a real how-to book that gives aspiring shooters insight into the real world of assignment photography. Harrington has done it again when it comes to describing his innovative approach to his profession and his ability to share it with the world." -- David Hume Kennerly, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer
"When John Harrington goes on assignment, you go with him. It's more than just loading your memory cards and batteries. It's figuring out where you need to be and how to get there. John is a pro at business, and with his new book, he shares some of his hard-won secrets for how to make your clients as happy with your pictures as you are." -- David Burnett, award-winning photojournalist and co-founder of Contact Press Images
