Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased that you dropped by.

Peterson's book on exposure is indeed a good read, but the OP is looking for a more generalized book that deals with all the features found on a digital camera as well as the photographic principles involved in use a digital camera.

I bought Bryan Peterson's "Understanding Photography Field Guide"

It is a really great book that is a combo of a lot of his books

Nothing will teach you more about taking pictures than taking pictures.

Take some pictures, and figure out what you like about them, and what you don't like about them.

Take some more pictures, trying to avoid the things you did that din't turn out well, and repeating and embelishing on the things you did that you do like. Then figure out what you like about those new pictures, and what you don't like about them.

No book, no college course, no seminar will teach you as much as simply taking pictures. In fact, books and college courses will tell you to do what I just told you to do; they'll just make it sound more complicated.
