If you're in the market for training on how to better use your Canon Rebel T5i, this ebook is the first on the market and very thorough. I've been thru several of Doug's other training books (he has them for just about every Canon and Nikon camera – check them here!) and you'll get a lot out of them if you're not very comfortable with your camera and don't like reading the mfg's manual.

“The author skillfully unlocks all of the camera's features and power, while offering clear guidance about how to use them to achieve the camera's full potential. This is not just an explanation of each feature, but a roadmap for their best use…in combination with good photographic technique.”
