i've been an amateur for 25 years...picked up this little gem just last year, and quickly found out how much I didn't know. This book covers fundamentals very well, with a lot of practical secrets we can use everyday. Yes there is also quite a lot of adventerous stuff like how to get close to a siberian tiger that most of us will never use, but the photos are awesome.

An excellent book, though more inspirational than educational. The title is a bit of a misnomer as the quick reference material (in the form of tables) is scattered throughout the book.

The photography, as can only be expected from National Geographic, is amazing. In addition, the book has interviews of notable NGS photographers which add a depth to the book that few other photography guides have.

It is difficult, however, to see for what audience this book is geared. For me, it sometimes seemed to be written for individuals picking up a camera for the first time, at other times it seemed to be directed toward those aspiring to be NGS photographers.

Regardless, an excellent book overall.
