As a photographic enthusiast, I am very impressed with this book. It will take you thru every step of using this camera. It leaves no 'stone unturned' in the operation of this camera. From initial setup to concise explanation of every menu item. For the beginner photographer, especially, this guide in my view, will be very helpful. In chapter 2, the author walks us thru setting up Intelligent Auto mode from the menu setting (with the authors own suggested settings) to get the most out of that mode. And the author continues on with detailed discussions of all other modes.
The Table of Contents is 10 pages long which gives you an idea of the wealth of information contained therein. The Index is 20 pages. You've got a very good appendix on all available accessories. As well as an appendix of Quick Tips. There is one chapter of 35 pages devoted to just the physical controls. Accompanying each of 10 chapters are well illustrated pictures demonstrating the camera and its controls as well as all menus. By chapter 2 the photographer is ready to begin shooting if he so desires.
My point here that this book appears to be a well thought-out and well-written guide for both the beginner as well as intermediate photographer enthusiast.
I am very impressed with this book and I can see that a lot of work went into the preparation of this book. I was sorry to hear that author Gary Freidman had to cancel the writing of his guide for this camera. But the author of this book, Alexander S White, was able to complete this guide for us and provided a great guide for us Sony RX10 owners.
I love this camera and I totally appreciate this book. If you have any questions please write and I will be glad to answer.

UPDATE: the Kindle version just came out the other day and it is every bit as good if not better than the paperback. I bought the Kindle version here on Amazon and I understand now that if you buy the paper format at Amazon, then you can buy the Kindle version at a deep discount of $2.99 here on Amazon. I use the Kindle format on my iPad Air and it looks and reads beautifully. Another advantage of the e-format is you can use the links available in the book a lot more readily than the paper format. And with the e-format I can take the book with me as I travel frequently instead of a bulky book.
I have used Canon equipment for 40 years and I am very familiar with the Canon method of operation. Since each camera manufacturer has their own methodology, it is not always straight forward to switch from one system to another. Alexander White does a remarkable job of explaining the camera's features and functionality, recommending certain settings based on shooting preferences, and smoothing the transition from Canon to Sony.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who is a first-time Sony user or just wanting to get the most from their RX10. Well done!
