to waster half the book if your not interested in camera raw and mini bridge.
Pages 1 - 113 cover the above and i found were wasted as i knew all that stuff, if however you want to learn about mini bridge and raw then its very helpful.
The rest of the book is very good. Its full colour and printed very well. All the information is presented neatly and readable. The step by step tutorials are very easy to follow and some are quite fun. The HDR section is great.
I would definitely say this is a book for beginners though as the tutorials are very short and basic.
I would recommend buying this book, i did and have had some great use out of it.
