I gave this book as a gift to a friend who had recently gone digital and decided to start with the D300. He found it was just too much camera for him. It seems this book has helped him begin to unravel the mysteries of the D300. Read full review

User Review  - Sharada Prasad CS - Goodreads

The good thing with field guide is, it is so much better than a user manual. D7100 for dummies is also a good book for beginners. Read full review
