    That looks like a good one. I just ordered a used copy.

    Fred Picker's "Zone VI Workshop" came highly recommended and I found it very to the point and easy to understand. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Zone-VI-Workshop-Fred-Picker/dp/0817405747/ref=pd_sim_b_1"]Amazon.com: Zone VI Workshop (9780817405748): Fred Picker: Books[/ame]


    I also really enjoyed Ansel Adams "The Negative." Some will say it is more dense than it needs to be, no pun intended. I found it very helpful.
