This book sounds very interesting, though for me it might turn out to be just acting out a fantasy.
Could someone persuade him to do an updated version? I think especially that the absence of references to digital photography is serious.

I have read the book (borrowed it from the library). It gives a good introduction and the tips on marketing, building up a photo collection, how to present a collection, etc.

Needs to be updated to take into account the changes in the professional protography industry in the digital age. A lot of professional protographers have moved to digital and it is the future medium of photography.

Fair review of the book.

I have a copy of this book from way back (pre digital) and it looks like it could do with an updating. However much of the book makes good sense and will help photographers wishing to move into the professional arena.
