Amazingly, the GoPro was completely undamaged after the bear tried to...

But all that being said, real, physical books...

When I first started shooting with a Nikon D50, a friend of mine (who had actually given me the Nikon as a hand-me-down) tried explaining the difference between full frame and crop frame sensors.
