I would say that this is a good book for Beginner and Intermediate photographers, but if you are fairly experienced and want something on artistic development look elsewhere.
Now that I have read the entire book, I need to go back over each chapter in detail and get the motivation to go out and really put to practice what I have learned. I do feel like the title is a little misleading though as there is more about general photography than composition.

Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots
Preview — Composition by Laurie Excell. Iit’s what I call ” rather technical”! Want to Read saving…. The author mentions that sometimes its ok to break the rules, but we’re never really told what the rules are other than don’t stick the horizon in the middle of the picture and other than a couple example pictures, we never really learn anything about when and why it is a good idea to break the rules.

Laurie Excell (Author of Composition)
Best for beginner or intermediate level photographer but even experienced photographers will get something from it. In this book, author and professional photographer Laurie Excell starts with the basics of composition—such as the popular rule of thirds—and illustrates how elements like color, shape, angles, and contrast work to create compelling images.
And while these elements are spoken of, we often get a voodoo answer of “you just get it compoition you get it”. It is actually the description of another book in this series on black and white photography.
These will include a chapter of step-by-step examples that highlight the compositional technique used to get just the right shot; a new chapter on black-and-white photography; and a chapter on what to do after the shot—enhancing and editing the images in post-processing. This book took me a while to digest since I am fairly new to photography.
