***** This is the one I highly recommend. Here are the reasons...
I have read a number of books on photography tips in hard copy and through online. This is the one I highly recommend. Here are the reasons:
1. For beginners, you can learn the important basics. For advanced photographers, you can get cutting edge information and/or reinforce what you have already known.
2. I have read this book twice since I bought it. I have learned many useful tips from Kevin's book along with how to use my camera. I really like how Kevin shows us how to utilize the modes (for what purposes) of our camera, both Canon and Nikon.
3. Each tip is followed by a couple assignments which help readers improve photography skills from the hands on experience.
4. With 30 great tips and photos in just 143 pages, Kevin is able to explain and illustrate not only how but also why; he also makes these tips easy to read, learn, and apply.
Thank you, Kevin!

***** Great teacher and great author!
I've taken one of Kevin's photography classes and was excited when he published this book. Everything from the class is in here along with much much more. His photography tips are well-written, technical but understandable, and there are great example photos to go along with the topics. A must have for any photographer who wants to step up their game.
