    anyone recommend this... it has great ratings on amazon, aside from some bad jokes in the book?

    I have it and have to say its not bad for when you are starting out - cuts out nearly all the technical info and just gets things nice and simple. Its a good place to start with when you are just after a good way to shooting and not a full understanding of all the ins and outs of settings and stuff.
    As such the book does start to fall short when you start to want to get a deeper understanding of the ins and out of photography, but for a pace to start its a good place

    The gist of the book. "Use a tripod". :)

    its a very good point - and needs to be hammered into photographers at an early stage -- your tripod is you best friend (just after a monopod for those places where you can't take your tripod)
