I'm not sure why the title specifies it's just for digital photographers. I think everything in it is useful to film shooters, too.
It has two shortcomings as I saw it.
First, it needs more supporting images to go with the verbal description. Some labelled arrows to the sample images pointing out specifically what is being addressed and how would be great! There are a few examples of "bad" posing to illustrate some of the basic points at the beginning, but as the book went on, it seemed fewer and fewer were shown.
Second, there are times, especially in the leg posing section, where the author decided to use a verbal description of how to pose a foot or leg where an illustration of some kind is really necessary. The most poignant example is when he refers to the "front foot". Front with respect to WHAT? Does he mean closer to the camera? Does he mean it is further in front of the subject? Doesn't that depend on how the subject decides to place their feet before you pose them? Even a review of the sample images didn't yield much evidence. I gave up trying to figure it out. Here, a picture would truly be worth 1000 words.
Overall, though, a good book of basics; and certainly enough to get one started.
