5.0 out of 5 stars Mom's review for son, August 4, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D For Dummies (Paperback)
My son bought this book using my account. Here is his review: I recently purchased the Canon camera and was having trouble learning to use it. I have a learning disability and Mom recommended this book saying it would be easier for me to read. It is very easy to read and easy to understand for beginning photographers, especially ones with learning disabilities. After using the camera (I absolutely love it), and getting stuck on something, I go to the book to get help and suggestions and so far I have always found answers to the questions I needed help with. It is very informative for beginners and has more information than I will be able to absorb in a year's time. But believe you me, I am having a ball learning!!! I very, very highly recommend this book to a beginning photographer, with or without a learning disability!! It is detailed enough when I need the details but also has illustrations of what it is talking about which greatly enhances the teaching for me. It is amusing and holds interest very well. Get this book to go with your new camera and then later after learning the basics about your new camera, get a more advanced one if you want or need it. That's what I am going to do and am having a fabulous time doing it.

Both my brother and I were told we had learning disabilities. He graduated from NYU and I graduated from Harvard. He had dyslexia as a kid (he sees words backwards) and today he's a book publisher. I couldn't do math or science to save my life, I thought, and now math is my bread and butter while I am also an amateur astronomer in my spare time.

It seems to me you don't have a learning disability at all--just like neither of us did, and just like most kids who have been told they are learning disabled actually don't. You just need to figure out how you learn and how to organize and express your original thoughts; no one else can do it for you. Just because you don't learn and express your ideas the same as the average person doesn't mean you are learning disabled.

Don't believe me? You just taught yourself how to use a piece of very sophisticated technology, and wrote a review about it which is the 'Most Helpful' review on the page for this product. What that indicates to me is that you might not respond well to someone trying to teach you every detail of a subject, but rather discover it for yourself; that if it's not hands on, live experience, just a subject in a book, it's probably both hard to conceptualize and boring.

Go with what you're good at and don't worry about the things you aren't good at. You may even find that the things you're good at and love to do become the things for which people consider you a genius.
