    Try "Learning to See Creatively" and "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson; "Langford's Starting Photography - The Guide to Great Images with Digital or Film" by Michael Langford and Philip Andrews; and "The Digital Photography Book: The Step-By-Step Secrets for How to Make Your Photos Look Like the Pros'" by Scott Kelby.

    "Nature Photography Field Guide" by John Shaw

    http://www.johnshawphoto.com/books.html

    I bought it 3 (or 4?) years ago, have read it over and over again, word by word, line by line. And for sure I'll pick it up again

    The book doesn't cover 0's and 1's though...

    Among the books I've read, the one about Lighting is what I enjoyed the most. It's not the best but it had given me better insights about composing the right exposure depending on the lighting situation.
