The first thing you'll notice when this book lands on your doorstep is the size of it! It's a hefty book that's made up of 25 chapters and the author really has used every last bit of space to give you all the information they can about flash photography.

The early chapters start right at the basics before the rest of the book guides you on a path which ends with you looking at really interesting techniques.

Every page is packed with images and information, there's even a whole chapter dedicated to batteries! This is a book that will certainly take you a while to work through.

A refreshing feature of the book is the use of bad as well as good shots so you have something to compare your work against if it doesn't go quite to plan.

Don't be put off by the fact that it's mainly aimed at Canon users either as even though some parts do address Canon specifically, the general techniques, photos and diagrams the book have will be useful for any photographer.

Some may consider the book to be a little expensive but you do get a lot of very useful words for your money crammed between the covers.

Final thoughts? Well if you're a Canon user this really is a book you should consider investing in. Everyone else should maybe borrow a friend's copy first then decide if it's worth your investment.
