Firstly don't be fooled by the title and assume this is mostly about studio lighting, as I did when I looked at the cover which also suggests this. The thing that had me wondering was it's written by experienced wildlife photographer Chris Weston.
The book covers outdoor lighting - i.e. the sun, for a majority of the pages. The last chapter is studio lighting. If you want to understand how to make the most of light it will assist lots of very good nature pictures mixed in with a few decent portraits lots of landscapes and the occasional product shot. There are areas where I think creative space has gone too far and lots of glaring red tips panels. It's easy to read, has some useful reference panels and overall a decent book, but not the best design to come out of the Rotovision stable.
