An A4 book with 128 pages in full colour. There is a view that books or magazines with a promise of 100 or 200 items may either be scratching around to provide that number or leaving you short in some way. Whereas a book that said 97 tips or 154 ways would subconsciously appear as the complete guide. Michael is well know for his landscape pictures and portraits and this book features heavily on these two subjects. I get the impression it was one of those easy ones to produce and in some areas I don't feel the variation of subjects is wide enough. Also some of the ideas cannot be found quickly from the index, (use of red filter, for example). That said, the extended captions that go with the pictures provide very useful information and the thumbnail images on the edge of each page allow speedy access to techniques. Having just reviewed the Hedgecoe book, I don't think there's enough to satisfy you here. Check out Michael's Rotovision guides which are also far better.
