    Frankly their cover image is substantially less than stellar, so I didn't bother downloading the book so I could do a review.

    I much prefer books I can hold and that are more targeted, though I have an extensive favorites list of technical information and tutorials:

    Understanding Exposure and Learning to See Creatively by Bryan Peterson.

    Photoshop books by Scott Kelby

    Light: Science and Magic by Hunter, Biver and Faqua

    The Nikon Creative Lighting System by Mike Hagen

    Best Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington

    Business and Legal Forms for Photographers by Tad Crawford.

    +1 for Understanding Exposure. I'm just nearing the end of it. I'll probably pick up Learning to See Creatively sometime this summer.

    i've been shooting for 5+ years and still consider myself at a very beginner skill level. so i decided to pick up Understanding Exposure and Nikon D90 Digital Field Guide. I'm not even half way through Understanding Exposure but it's already helped me quite a bit in looking at things in a different (better) way, and the Field Guide has helped me execute the things i've learned in Understanding Exposure.

    Hey, don't denegrate truck drivers or yourself like that. ;) There's a lot of smart truck drivers out there, including you. You got Bryans book after all.

    I used to drive OTR, (CFI). Made more money selling stock photography than I did driving the truck, but driving the truck got me around so I could make the stock images.
