Full-color throughout, Miotke's book will take you from "Don't Get Too Close" to what lens compression is and how it affects your images. He explains why you should or would need a tripod, when to turn on the flash, what focal length is, composition, framing, and more. For a beginner, this is the book I would recommend to get you started. If you have a good grasp of the basics, this is NOT the book for you.
The book is of very good quality.
I am happy that I read the book. Now it is time to practice.
Starts with a short section on generic camera controls and operation (it is not, however, a detailed "buttons" manual). Section 2 covers composing, focus, and lighting with plenty of before and after picture comparisons. Section 3 has "assignments" to practice, including thought provoking example photos. The next several sections cover more detailed and advanced topics, explained clearly and well illustrated.
Highly recommended for novice photographers, everyone else can skip it though.
