I mean, come on, read the photo magazines: 'Boost the ISO to 1600, dial up the aperture, or change the exposure compensation by 1/3EV.' Huh?" notes David.

Over the years, I've reviewed hundreds of cameras for The Times, and loved every minute of it; I think this was a book I was born to write."
And here, from the introduction of his new publication, David Pogue explains the information he covers in the book:
Indeed, David Pogue's witty, authoritative voice has demystified the Mac, Windows, iPods and iPhones for millions of readers. And with his new book, he offers plenty of friendly advice to help you join in the fun and get real satisfaction from digital photography.
