    Steve does good work! I haven't read his books yet, but I do find his videos to be very helpful.

    I like to think I know a lot about my cameras but it is surprising how much our cameras can do and how they do it that I am learning reading this book that I wasn't aware of. This is WELL WORTH reading!!!

    I believe he self-published just as an ebook, so physical book may not be available.

    Re: I highly recommend reading "Secrets of the Nikon Focusing System

    Well I started reading Steve Perry's book on "Perfect Portraits" and it didn't take me very long at all to to decide this was not my cup of tea. The book on the "Secrets to the Nikon Focusing System" I thought was outstanding but this book is totally useless in my opinion. I will say that the person that edited the book on focusing did a very good job but this thing was poorly done.

    It also starts out telling how he set up five or six lights for the lighting and all the things he did to get the shot. In my estimation, anyone that had that much equipment would be far enough along in their photographic skills that they wouldn't need this book. To me it is like someone totally different wrote and edited this book. Maybe if I kept on reading I would change my mind but I just put this book on the don't bother to get it list.

    "Secrets to the Nikon Focusing System" five stars

    "Perfect Portraits" don't bother

    I realize that others may find the book worth reading but in my opinion, spend your time and money elsewhere.

    Grandpa, which book did you put on the don't bother list? I am confused- do you like the book on focusing or do you not. Couldn't tell which book you were talking about! Paul
