I think this title succeeds on several levels. Compared to other books, there is more original content in this one, mostly because the author sought out photographers other than the "usual suspects" that appear in most every street photography tome out there. This was great for me to not have to wade through photos that I have seen dozens of times before in other books.
Another great idea from the author was to give each photographer several images (half a dozen) based on the shooter's perceived expertise. Each chapter starts with "Master of...." and then a narrative to complete that phrase, such as complexity, or atmosphere, or expression. There are sixteen such chapters and while I enjoyed some over others, none were out of place in the book based on the title.
For whatever rhetoric people give about gear versus results, a lot of photographers are gearheads, I admit I am. Others like me will like that at the end of each section, the photos are reproduced in a smaller scale with full technical info, camera, lens, exposure, etc. Each photographer also does a short Q&A on their process.
The book physically is very nice, hard cover with a ribbon book mark. The photos are reproduced very nicely, both the color and B&W.
At the end of the book is a photo of each photographer along with links for their social media.
Bottom line, at 10 Dollars off the cover price here at Amazon, this is one of my best photo book purchases in a long time. If you like street photography, get it.
The book presents work by 16 different "master" photographers, in a very well organized and accessible form. One chapter is dedicated to each photographer and includes: Photos, a brief background on the artist, a Q & A section and a technical information recap that provides the nuts and bolts for the equipment used and the various camera settings.
The book should be especially helpful to those just starting out in this genre because, you'll get a great understanding about how 16 different photographers approach their art.
