I ordered this book and it arrived a couple of weeks ago, and it really opened my eyes as to what this camera is capable of. Everything is set out in sensible chapters, shows and explains every mode available, and gives you a sense of empowerment over the camera, instead of bewilderment.
If you are upgrading from a basic DSLR or taking a huge jump to this camera as a first DSLR, then this book is a must. Without it, or something like it, then realizing the full potential of this camera could take a very long time, and be very frustrating.
With my camera body I bought a very good lens. I'm delighted I also bought this very good book.
Excellent book. Worth the $ and if you spend the time reading every page (sometimes twice), you'll have as much knowledge as a seasoned photographer.
Although this book is a weighty tome, it's easy reading, and if you want a condensed version to carry around with you, Busch offers that too. His David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Nikon D5100 is a worthy replacement for those laminated cheat sheets that fold out into six index card sized tabs with one-sentence summaries of most of the menu settings, too. While the portable version duplicates some of the information found in this book, the two make a great pair for home and field. You'll want to buy them both to have the information you need on the go and for study at home.
I think it might be a cut-and-paste from some earlier book the author has written about another Nikon camera, because on one page (Page 134) it refers to a "focus selector lock lever" which is non-existent on this camera model (d5100). Not expected from an author with one million books in print
On the positive side, it contains some useful info about lenses, accessories, software, but not worth the price of the book.
I am unlikely to open it up again. I also bought "From Snapshots to Great Shots on the D5100 - I think that is a better buy
