    This large book is invaluable if you are studying photography at University level, which I am It gives you an insight into photography over a vast period of time, and is written in detail, but in a clear and simple format, and opens your eyes to subjects you may never have thought to look at before The balance between text and photography is good, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a serious interest in photography.

    This book is 568 pages, I expected it to be big, but after finding it in my mailbox Well, it s humongous, sizewise it s a very big book.Obviously I have not read all of it, and I do not expect to do so in quite a while, because this book is f ing huge.I Intend to use it for future university studies, and for that purpose it most certainly is brilliant, it seems to cover most of the photograph s very large history, great source material.Bought it for 10 , shipping included, much bang for buck.

    Enjoyable, well written, well illustrated with some surprises, erudite though weak on technicalities actually, ignores much of modern development Nonetheless, highly recommended.
