      I wish this book had been around when I was in school, it would have been a great one for theory discussion! Lots of brief essays about the multitude of ways that photography impacts our lives, divided into subcategories for easy reference, and including the images that each essay discusses.

      A great resource to expand your ideas on how and why photography functions in the 21st century, it dips into a long and rich history of the medium and its uses. A must for serious beginners in photography.

      Some of the earlier essays were less interesting to me, partly because the ideas in them struck me as obvious. Later essays on the snapshot, family history and memory were very interesting.
