The "Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs" book by Henry Carroll is a fantastic read. It's small, too the point, has fantastic example images/illustrations and is written in a way that most people would find easy to understand.

I found this book very enjoyable to read. It wasn't over complicated and in depth and told you the basics that you would need to know to use your camera, such as Aperture, Shutterspeed, ISO, Depth of Field, composition, lighting etc, along with images that showed you examples to help you visualise and understand what was being said.

For experienced photographers, it may be a nice little reference but a lot of the content you would already know. Although I read this after I was quite experienced, I did read about some nice composition techniques.

If you have just purchased a camera, or want to buy as a gift for someone who has recently purchased one, then this would be a perfect book to get them started.
