National Geographic Photography Field Guide: Landscapes by Robert Caputo

There are some useful tips in this book, both practical and aesthetic. The theory is illustrated with good examples in the form of beautiful photographs.
From one point on, however, the book gets quite repetitive and you hardly read or learn anything new.

The guide seems to end up in no mans land. On one hand, it is too technical for people who dont intend to spend money on photographic equipment, and on the other hand too general for those who have the said equipment and presumably are already familiar with most of the advices found in the book and want to learn more details.

I am somewhere in the middle - I am familiar with the basic technical theory and I intend to obtain more serious equipment one day, so the pro tips did not bother me, and neither did the summarizing character of the info and the lack of details, since I am not yet that advanced.
And I did enjoy the book. It helped me understand some things better, and it is a little step forward, but overall it provides just a basic insight in landscape photography and is rather meant to inspire you to look for more info and try new things yourself than actually teach you anything advanced.

It is also a bit outdated, as it focuses almost entirely on film cameras and merely mentions once or twice that such a thing as digital photography actually exists.
