    I'm looking for a book that's about the history of photography and how it came to be, not how to take pictures or how to use your camera type books, I would like to learn more about the history, the heart, the soul of photography, you know?

    But I don't know what would be a good book to read, a lot of photography books just talk either about how to compose or overall technical.

    If anyone has a good recommendation about a book I'm talking about, I'd love to know what it is!

    Thanks!

    I'm sure your local library would have something too.
    You can usually check the library online, and possibly order a book from a network of libraries.

    Your library would probably have access to Audio versions.

    Or just buy one online.

    Oh goodness, its been years since I stepped into my local library. I might look for an audio version.

    Which is better? Reading or listening?

    Whatever works best for you. The Eastman House has the book that Yaopey just posted about. (Taschen does some good art & photography books.)
    A History of Photography

    Now why did you have to get me looking at this? lol and seeing books I'd like...
