First Sentence
The human eye sees in much the same way as a 50mm lens, and therefore, the 50mm focal length lens is appropriately called a normal lens. Read the first page

This review is based on the revised version published in Oct 2003.
Excellent pictures contained within and the author teaches you ways to see every day life through a new creative perspective.
Following the instructions, you will soon find yourself also shooting on your belly or lying on your back for a whole new viewpoint. Many of us unfortunately only shoot from eye level or at a posture thats convenient and that itself limits creatively.
This is one of the better reads I have come across. Worth every penny. Thank you Bryan, I have learned.

This book is a must have, I read the whole thing in one read, and I can assure you that I will browse through it from time to time. Bryan Peterson explains everything step by step and after you're done, you'll understand reasonably well if not perfectly what he's trying to say.

If you're looking to go beyond amatuer and make that transition to take really good photos, here's a time saver. By going into the details of photography from line, shape, texture, to the rule of thirds to tips on macro photography, he starts by making you a serious photographical critic AND I assure you that you'll see things you never did before picking this book.

All in all, he makes you that much more fond of photography than you already are (otherwise you wouldn't be reading this review!). This is a book that i will be sure to thumb from time to time and is worth every cent spent if not more!

When I heard that this book was going to be revised, I waited for it in anxious anticipation - it was well worth the wait!
Sometimes all that is needed to improve a composition is to change one's perspective, which is often pointed out in this book. This is something I'm learning to take advantage of, and can see the improvement in my pictures.
I was also happy to see a section added dealing with color and one on digital imaging.
If you've got a basic understanding of photography behind you, then I'd highly recommend this book!
