I recommend this book without hesitation
If you have a digital camera, and really need something to help you improve your knowledge of photography as many online professional photographers recommend it. Just get "Ansel Adams, The Camera" here.
This book will help you in understanding the most insignificant fundamentals of a camera, you will come away with a good grasp of a few tidbits like, a greater depth of field is the consequence of a smaller aperture. Now you'll be able to just adjust the aperture setting to the biggest or smallest opening available using aperture priority mode. Because other books do not teach you why apertures can influence depth of field, or their descriptions are mostly unsatisfactory for a reader to grasp how to employ the in-between aperture settings, for instance, which ranges will develop into out of focus. After reading this book you'll get the ahah of "that's why it's like that".
I recommend this book without hesitation to anyone who desires a better understanding of photography. Some people might find "The Camera" too scholastic, and the images are only in black and white. Although you'll learn more fundamental points from this book in comparison to those books that employ nice colorful images. In other books, I've seen photos that don't even provide captions when the , shutter, aperture, ISO, etc. images are shown. But even when they do, there's inadequate explanations to why they selected those particular modes (never mind trying to understand them). For a novice, it's really difficult
to improve their photography skills reading those sort of books. This could very well be the book solves those very issues for you.
