I got this because it was on a blog as one of the great photography books of the 20th century, and hard to get. Seeing it on Amazon, I just had to give it a look see.

There are indeed some fantastic images, and the basic theme of the book: create the image with an eye to the image's ultimate use, is a valuable lesson that is seldom touched on. OTOH, most of the descriptive text is no longer as relevant, being aimed at markets, such as magazines, newspapers, and catalogs, that no longer exist, and is not easily.

I have owned this book for over 30 years now and it has been my photojournalistic bible.Evans gives great insight into approach,composition and the philosophy behind news subjects.It's filled with historical photos used in newspapers as far back as the 1940's.It has helped my approach 100% as I have been a Newspaper Photographer for the past 20 years. A must read!!
