What Readers are Saying about Doug's previous Nikon guides,
Nikon D5100 Experience and Nikon D7000 Experience:

A well written, professional helpful guide - Brilliant, just what I was looking for! A manual that was exciting, clear to follow, had examples and was used by a professional who gave just the right amount of technical info with explanations of why you use those settings, when to use those settings and so on, all properly explained. The book is a revelation, a joy to follow, well thought through and well written. Nikon should be employing Doug to write every one of their cameras manuals.
-R.D.C.

For beginners and the more experienced - This book, with its fun to read and easy to understand instructions, helps both the novice and experienced. It isn't a rehash of the Nikon manual, but explains what each camera function is for and how you might want to set it to achieve your goal. My photos have improved after reading this book, and I refer to it again as I learn more. It offers an abundance of information and it is too much for me to take in all at one time. I highly recommend this purchase. It is worth every penny and more.
-Laura A.

Itís the first guide I've read which has taken me through all the settings in an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera.
-Peter S.

Really practical and tremendously helpful. Readers of this e-book can expect to benefit from a more rewarding photographic experience using this superb camera, and be better able to exploit its potential to match their personal objectives and photographic style. Highly recommended.
-M.M.

Really focuses on the "why" - I found the Nikon manual good for understanding how to set things up but not much on the why - this book really focuses on the WHY.  The guide helped me understand why to use specific settings for specific needs.  The Custom Settings sections help to make firm decisions on how to apply settings by understanding the usage of each in addition to knowing how to set them up.
-Benoit A.

It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike. As previous reviewers have remarked, the official manual is very good on what to do, but not so clear on why.
-G.S.A. 

This book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need to start discovering the full potential of the D7000.
-Max M.

This manual is a clearly written, concise and useful explanation of the rationale for the seemingly infinite and often confusing settings options for the D7000. Used in conjunction with the Nikon manual I feel more confident in understanding how to at last proceed in getting better photographs.
-W.L.S.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using the D7000.  Manuals are nice, but this eBook highlights the important information and gives a quick, easy to understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls.
-Ray M.
