Pro: The material is great. Lindsay Adler is an amazing photographer, and she has a real knack for both explaining things clearly and visually illustrating what she's talking about with do/don't images, pull-back shots when necessary, and an occasional bit of diagramming on top of an image. The key to this book vs. the kind of static guides to different poses I've tried looking at before is that she's not giving you a list of positions to contort people into, she's laying out a set of basic principles you can use to (a) figure out how you want someone to look, and then (b) arrange them into a position that fulfills that look you're going for. And then at the end of the chapter she'll give you a small list of positions you can contort people into, just in case you lack the imagination to get started on your own ;)
Neither pro nor con: While this book is pretty substantial size-wise, it's still not nearly comprehensive, which you come to realize pretty quickly it simply couldn't be without being a whole lot bigger. However, given the amount of material, I found some of the content choices suboptimal, personally. Including an entire chapter on boudoir posing seemed like an unusual choice while what I would expect to be some more common scenarios--especially working with children and posing non-family groups--were left out. Of course, if you shoot a lot of boudoir that's great for you, so ymmv. By the end of the book I kind of came out with the feeling that this was less a comprehensive posing guide and more of an introduction and long form advertisement for the copious amount of instructional video material she has online. Which I have to admit I fell for; I've since bought three of her CreativeLive courses.
Con: The editing in this book is very sloppy, which is what kept this from being a five star review. There are several places in the book where the figure numbers she refers to don't actually match the images she's talking about. e.g. she'll say "The problem with image 3.19 was [x] and I fixed it in image 3.20 by doing [y]," but the two images she's talking about will actually be 3.17 and 3.18. Presumably in this case an image was added removed and the references in the text not updated.
Worse yet, at times the text will refer to an image that's not actually present under any numbering, or an image will have the wrong caption directly underneath it. These may seem like minor issues, but it can be very confusing for a beginner to read something, look at the referenced image, see that the two don't match up, and then take quite a bit of time to try to figure out if the book is wrong or if you're just badly misunderstanding what it is you're supposed to be looking at.
There's also an entire section of chapter 3 (on problematic expressions) that's alluded to, but then the chapter just abruptly ends without the promised section. I assume this is because an editor axed that part of the chapter but forgot to remove the intro text for it.
* What do with people's hands
* How wide angle lenses (which I would normally not use for portraits before reading this book) can be great for altering the perceived shapes of faces and bodies
* Poses that emphasize the arch of the back in females, resulting in much more attractive pictures
* A whole lot more
The thing that makes this book so much better than others is the 'before' and 'after' shots. Many other photography books that I've read are just a collection of somebody's portfolio with notes on what made the picture work. This book is different, in a very practical way: The pictures are done SPECIFICALLY for the book, with two or three variations on each pose, along with a concise explanation, so that you, the reader, can see exactly why some poses work and some don't.
