National Geographic Society publishes a book called "Photography 
Field Guide" which is a good one. They also have a new book out aimed 
at kids, "Photography Guide for Kids". It's well written and good for 
anybody learning about photography. Both books feature NatGeoSoc 
photographers and their tips for better shooting.
[Page four of the Photography Field Guide has a wonderful full-page 
picture of Dave Harvey with an M6.]
Good luck and have fun.
