I agree with the reviewer that states that many of the photos included are less than inspirational, but I have to add that they are very instructional. In other words, they illustrate the point being made, and do it well.
I give this book four stars (instead of five) because a couple of early chapters go a bit too much in-depth for the topics presented. The geometry of different frames and the dimensions of 'the golden triangle' are interesting reading, but would be better placed nearer the end of the book. As a new photographer, I'm more interested in color, balance, perspective, etc., than envisioning my photo in an oval frame.
It turns out my girlfriend thinks it's a good book too. So in summary, I'd say it's a good book for beginners or people (like me) who forgot some of the basics they may have learned long ago. I chose this book over the others on composition because it is well written, has good examples, and it stays focused.
Also, the edition I got had way too many typos, which were much more distracting than one would expect. This is usually not a problem if the book is good enough that you're paying more attention to the content than to the typos, but that was not the case for this one.
