First of all, I think it's a great book for introduction to DSLRs. The first two-thirds of the book just goes over the camera's functions and buttons in great detail. The info there is a subset of what you can get by downloading and reading the 200+ page Nikon manual. It's definitely organized better and looks prettier. However, as a techie, I'm comfortable reading instruction manuals, so this part of the book didn't do much for me in terms of learning new stuff.
The last third of the book is where it got more exciting for me, with his explanations of exposure, aperture and shutter speed, white balance etc. I guess I need a book which teaches me how to take better pictures which this camera, and not just what the buttons and controls do.
In summary, I think the book itself is well-written and great for beginners and non-techies, but just didn't meet all my needs perfectly.
