I just went to your website and took a look at your book. First off it is beautiful! As for what kind of books I am looking for? Well I wouldn't consider myself a beginner anymore but I am always learning and want to learn more. I love how technical "The Negative" is and actually find it clear and concise. I was just looking more books to expand my meager library of about 10 books. The books I have range from text books to technical books to just some beautiful picture books.
I might be reading between the lines here but I see nothing wrong with my paying $5 for a used book from an online retailer or even locally. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used or http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used)
One of the retailers there is the SD area Goodwill.
In the end maybe just another approach or another's view/take on the zone from selecting a camera to exposing to developing. Updated with newer film's and or different developers.
