Short Courses Book on 50D

Hi, all,

I am an amateur but not a complete novice. I've had film SLRs, the 20D and now the 50D, but am looking for more than the manual provides. Some of the instructions confuse me, like separating focus or exposure lock from shutter button, among many other more advanced (to me) features. I sort of get it, but not fully. I've not tried these features before, as I seem not to be inclined easily to experimentation. I'm getting old!

Would you recommend the subject book by Dennis P. Curtin? Is it a usefully enhanced version of the manual, adding real value and insights, or just mostly a rehash of the manual with only a few added features?

Thanks you,

Regards, Rod
