Basic Digital Photography Book

I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my husband, who has been into Digital Photography now for years. From some of the reviews I read before purchasing this book, this would be a great handbook for the beginner AND the more experienced photographer. Not so. I flipped through this book (thank goodness) before wrapping it. The first few chapters of this book discuss the basics, and I mean BASICS, of computers & photography. I know more than the average about photography just from being around my husband, and in the beginning chapters it's too basic for me. I have to give Tom some credit, some of the pictures were beautiful, and I'm sure as you read more into the book, there was probably more detail than I read. I would not recommend this book to anyone who knows the basics about digital photography, how to save & store your pictures & how to print, because you'll get a refresher course. There's also a LOT of nudity in this book, so I wouldn't recommend it for the younger crowd. Goodluck Tom on your next one.

Great For Newbie C++ DirectX Gamers!

I always have a problem reading big fat books... I start a few chapters, then give up!
Anyway, this is the first big fat book I've ever read from start to finish!
Andre has a cool, very readable style of explaining things, some quirky jokes here and there, and cute quotes from movies at the start of every chapter:)
So yeah, to summarise, it's cool!:)

I ordered Microsoft Excel 2000: Step by Step to aid myslef in becoming more acclimated in the Excel platform. I have made spreadsheets and charts before using Excel 95 & 97, but it had been some time since I last employed Excel. Also, I never claimed to be the Excel Master that others profess to be. That's why I purchased this book - to not only make me proficient with Excel, but to bolster my abilities so that I will pass the Microsoft User Specialist Excel Master exam and become a Certified Excel Master and receive my pretty little certificate in the mail.
The 18 easy to follow chapters range from setting up a simple worksheet, integrating Microsoft Office data, distributing data online, sorting, filtering, & subtotaling data, as well as making amazing charts, graphs, and flowcharts that will be attention-getters and jump out at their audience. The extensive hands-on exercises utilize the copious amounts of example spreadsheets contained on the CD-ROM that allow you to move at your own pace while concurrently mastering Excel 2000.
