Caroline Wills ,

Excellent Nikon 1 manual

This book is well written and easy to understand. I also have the Nikon V1/J1 for Dummies ebook and the David Busch Nikon V1/J1 guide. This one ranks right up with those and I believe it does the best job of explaining the focus modes. I especially like all the recommendations for different shooting situations. I had a question and the author responded within the day. $9.99 well spent - highly recommended.
