It covers all the basics, and explains them in a way anyone can understand. The author is very good at speaking to film users, digital SLR, and even point and shoot users at the same time. Even though this book doesn't have an attention grabbing title like "How to take amazing pictures!" or "999 Photo tips to make you rich!!", now you know why they say you can't judge a book by its cover.
Get this book and you'll pretty much have almost everything you need. Once you decide to get into a specialty area of photography (macro, landscape, portraits), you can get a more specific book, but for beginners, and even amateurs who kind of know what they are doing but could use some guidance - this is the one to get. You will not be disappointed.
