What Readers are Saying about the author's previous Nikon guides:

This is the most helpful manual I've ever used. No serious Nikon user should be without this.

All I Need - I have been using Nikon dSLR cameras for many years. In all this time I have never come across a publication which complements the rather soulless and complex user manual so well.
