Collins Complete Photography Manual, published by Collins, 2007.
My wife bought this book for me from a Charity shop and I have just read it. Published in 2007 it is now already very dated. I was both disappointed and assured that this book couldn’t teach me anything new; but at least it covered old ground that will always reinforce what I have already learned. Overall this book was only suitable for the very beginner and only touches on subjects without elaborating. If I had paid the original £25 recommended retail price for this book back in 2007 I would have felt cheated. This is not going to be kept and I will donate it back to the library now that I have read it from cover to cover, (having respected my wife’s good intentions).
