It is well written. The explanations are accompanied with visuals whenever possible. The instructions are short and sweet and in terms any one can understand. I haven't bought a "Dummy" book in a decade probably, but this one is exactly what I was hoping for.
In short, this is a fantastic companion to your Canon T1i. It is a valuable tool for both the camera specifically, and for your beginner needs.
In the tradition of "dummies" books, the text was easy to understand and intertaining, but still was efficient in delivering the information. I found the emphasis was just right in relating all the important stuff for beginners through intermediate users, though some pre-existing knowledge of photography is helpful. Would like to have seen more on taking video with this camera.
Overall a good book and I would recommend it to new digital SLR users.
