You'll get several B/W photos taken from kites, a number of diagrams giving some detail about a couple of camera holder set-ups and some bits about triggering your camera once you have it airborne. The photos and drawings aren't greatly detailed, neither is the text but I did learn a little about how to hang a camera (no info on choosing a camera to fly with)from a kite. I'd like more information to consider this book to be of great value, including a bibliography of those "too technical" books.
The book is filled with low quality and rather uninteresting B&W photos. I'd rather have more technical information and instruction than this filler. The book does give instruction on crude triggering devices and creating a Picavet--perhaps the most useful information.

This is an interesting book... not something I ever would have imagined myself reading, but I was considering giving it to my brother as a gift and that is why I got it.
Who the book is for:
Hardcore photographers who want to try something different.
What I liked:
This book is very in depth and shares just how much work kite aerial photography takes.
What I didn't like:
This book is very thin and not really gift worthy.
I didn't try anything out of this book, so I can't testify to if it really works or not, but I do think the instructions were thorough, and it sounds like it would work.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
