I bought Field Guide for D and found it useless for me - waste of money though it was not expensive. I don't thinks Thom Hogan's guide for D is out yet. If you know a few buttons and menus of your camera, my suggestion is to get Understanding Exposure. It's not camera specific but I believe you will learn much more than from those specific guides. I'm hoping that Thom Hogan will make a book for the D, but in the meantime, get the other. Parts of Understanding Exposure were refresher for me, but I've also learned a lot of neat tricks. Don't forget Nikon D Experience, an e-book that many have rated very highly, and which can be taken with you on any of your e-reading devices:.
Never ask a man where he's from. If he is from Texas, he'll tell you. Otherwise, don't embarrass him. Thom Hogan's Guides are crammed full of "why to" as well as "how to". They are relatively modest on pictures, having just enough to get the information across, but heavy on tables, a basic discussion on digital imaging technology and its limitations, what the pros use for AF, why Nikon's button ergonomics are set up the way they are, comparisons to other camera bodies, proper use of flash systems, etc. I don't know of another guide that has a table listing the camera's dynamic range vs.
ISO, for example it's actually useful.

His newer guides come with a "to go" camera bag reference that's much better than Nikon's. Thom's guides presume that you have access to general photographic techniques guides and that you want to know everything you can about how and why your camera works. This is important to sorting out photographic problems as they inevitably come up. I find that often the popular printed guides have too many pictures and eye candy and too little depth for my preferences.

With the complexity of today's DSLRs, a guide that's just a prettier rehash of the factory user's manual is of no benefit. Over the years I have had several of these "books", and they have taught me the square root of nothing. My advice would be to read this and the relevant Flickr forum, take loads of images, practice, and generally use the camera.
You will soon find out which settings are best for you. Save the dosh Agree, save the money, read the instructions that come with the camera, practice and practice. Go through all the menus on the camera, practically, it is the quickest way to learn rather than just reading. Spend money of photographic books to lean the craft if this is needed but not on specific cameras.
You tube and internet searches can prove effective without wasting money. All the best. I agree completely with mosswings writing , he expressed my thougths much better then i could do!! IMO it would take a great effort and much time to discover by yourself all the knowlegde inside these guide!! I found them both tedious, repetitive, like the authors were paid by the word, and not much help in understanding the camera but full of elaborate color pictures of the LCD and viewfinder displays and other graphics. I then ran across these reviews, ordered Thom's e-book package and have now finished his "Nikon D To Go Guide" and am moving carefully through his "Complete Guide.
They are also quite professionally produced -- the black and white printed "D Complete Guide" is excellent print quality, not what self-publishing often degenerates to.

I am delighted with Thom's products and think it likely that the whole massive list of his work is probably done at an equally high level. I am glad I found his web site and publications through these dpreviews. My error. Young's book is "Mastering the Nikon D" not D Since there were few books available then on the D, I thought I could put up with whatever was different or missing. I actually found quite significant differences, which make this book even less useful for D owners.
Save your money. If you already have internet service, you have all of the free information you'll ever need, plus some.
While i found the D60 book somewhat helpful as I read on forums etc thought it lacked info. I also thought it had a lot of padding in places and the tone was sometimes condescending. The field guide came with the D90 and frankly it was a disappointment. I happened to see pages of a 'dummy's guide' for I forget which Nikon but did think "hey why weren't those other 2 books like that".
Having read the comments in this thread I am reminded to try and get Understanding Exposure, and maybe to try to get a Thom Hogan guide.
