One thing that may be disappointing is the focus on black and white. Color control is crucial in making color prints and intimately tied with contrast.
The three books in this series can be read independently, but together provide a complete clinic from positioning the camera to displaying a final print.
One little remark would be for the publisher. The paper the book is printed is gloss with quite a high reflectance index. This results in making reading the book at certain angles quite impossible for your eyes.
Ansel's fantastic images and stories combine with his technical discussions to provide the perfect insight into how to become the necessary craftsman. His uncompromising approach into printmaking and photography are clear and simple examples that any novice should at least start with. There are other books out there - but no better start than this. Enjoyable and instructive at the same time!
Even if it applies to B&W, I find that much of the content can be applied to color work if you think a bit more about it - mostly now, in the digital age with separated luminance and chrominance controls.
You'll also read some good ol' kitchen recipes about developers and toning... These will be less and less useful, but can bring back the smell of the darkroom to your memory ;o)... And quite often, the principle that based the recipe can be applied to another media.
A reference, whether shooting film, digital or glass plates (and of invaluable interest for the two former).
I purchased this a a gift for a relative who is just starting to get involved in photography. It contains everything you need to know to produce a high quality print from start to finish, Darkroom to Paper. Part of a very informative series.
