Well written and informative.

I don't usually do well with books like this, I tend to get bored easily and set them aside. But this is so easy to read, interesting and helpful. Screen shots of his discussion, steps on how to use settings and menus; do's and don'ts and what results of those actions. Especially useful that he tells you along the way why he's not addressing a certain issue at the time and directs you to the chapter he does. I have learned so much from this book!
