A little philosophical for me, but does cover some helpful topics. A nice read when you want something different. It's more about the attitude of the photographer than any particular skills or techniques. The digital photography portions are way outdated.

Nice blend between the practical and the philosophical. Beautiful photos and thought provoking quotes.
