great content, but the ebook looks like utter crap on the nook and nook app on windows and Android. Buy the dead trees, B&N ebook distorts & crops images. B&N has abandoned the nook apps. Don't buy the ebook, but buy the book. Maybe the Kindle does better.
Each page is filled with quick and easy tips. I love that the focus is on getting out there and photographing people.
