Anyone Have This k200d Book?

Amazon.com: David Busch's Pentax K200D Guide to Digital SLR Photography: David D. Busch, Matthew Bamberg: Books

Was just wondering if it's worth ordering or is just a lavish more colorful "Magic Lantern" type book..which I already own along with the "Jump Start" DVD. Always looking for more ways to use/learn the advanced menus of the K200d

I never understood the attraction of buying books about equipment. I find it so much more enjoyable to learn through trial & error. It gives me a better understanding of the equipment (much better than through reading a book), I get hands-on experience, and save some $ in the process.

Or maybe I'm just cheap.

I have the book and found it really useful. BUT (1) I haven't seen the Magic Lantern edition so I can't compare, and (2) I am just learning how to cope with dSLRs (coming from a film dSLR) myself. Someone with your experience may not find this book as useful as I did.
