What kind of book!? What are you trying to learn?
Didn't your camera came with a manual?

thanks, book

Thanks for your reply. Yes, got a manual. However, some of it is rather obtuse. I'd like to have a "how to" guide in addition to the manual. I'm trying to learn the ins and outs of the camera and how to use them to get certain photo effects. thanks, david

Not sure what you mean by "Pentax is doomed - blame the French!" Pls enlighten me. Thanks.

In that case, the book Adam recommended might be of use to you.
But in theory, controls and functionality is pretty much the same as all the other cameras... aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance... etc.

Is more of a inside joke on these forums... a lot to explain... but on short it is related to Pentax being bought by Ricoh and the Full Frame drama threads.
Is also related to rumors recently spread on a certain French Facebook account... oh and the waiting periods for the FF to come out...

Just to make it clear though, that was not a comment directed towards you specifically... that is my forum signature.
