Which out of the following two books would you recommend and why? I'm thinking of picking one or the other up this week.

I would go for the Scott Kelby book.
The dummy series has had it's day I think.

26 Books Every Photographer Should Own - Digital Photo Tips and More on

Here's your shopping

I'd second the suggestion above, Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson, then the Kelby Series, and the Adams series. I've found all of them extremely informative.
