Not many of us have the time or energy to take a photography class, but almost all of us can admit we have left a trail of subpar-to-downright-awful pictures behind us. That shot of your grandpa’s knee? Yeah, not eligible for the Pulitzer this year.

Perhaps an easy-to-read book might help? Right away, we love the title here: Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs. Simple, obvious, and funny. Inside there’s 128 pages of tips, tricks, and vital info for the guy or girl new to their DSLR or compact system camera. The head-spinning jargon is 86ed for engaging images and playful prose. You’ll learn about composition, exposure, light, lenses, and seeing, with beautiful shots taken by master photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sebastião Salgado, Fay Godwin, and Martin Parr.
