Goes over the same thing so many times that all the sections blur together. Lacks even most basic technical information that could prove invaluable to bettering one's product photography. Even as a starting place I found it fairly lacking, but since you can check it out for free I'd recommend absolute beginners give it a read anyway.

There are much better product photography books out there. They may not be as hip looking, or as etsy-focused, but they'll take you much further.
