By the time Kindle 2 came out, I was way hooked on this product, bought it and of course then immediately read his Kindle 2 information. Although I really enjoyed the struggle related to Kindle 1 (I have been working with computers since the early 80's) - his Kindle 2 book puts readers just a tiny click away from anywhere they want to go and any books they want to read on this marvelous machine. Now the experience was terrific.
Windwalker has made it easy to enjoy all the benefits of the Kindle 1 and 2. His advice and ideas are very valuable and the links are perfect. By the way, I'm a 73 year old woman and I find everything about this technology fantastic.
Personally, I think it's lame to release a "Beta version" of a book anyway. Books shouldn't become like software. That's the slippery slope we get into with eBooks. It should either be finished and ready for release or not. Period.
Also, save your money and read the well-written manual that comes installed on your Kindle. There are lots of tips and tricks already in there.
His included links turned out to be a double bonus. I refer to the book often, and really feel that it has enhanced my usage of the Kindle. This book really is a must have for any Kindle owner who wants to get the most of their ereader!
The writing is generally more casual and entertaining than a typical user manual, but it's also poorly structured and puzzlingly repetitive at times. For example, the author explains how the Kindle 2 has two built-in speakers but also can be used with headphones in four different sections of the book. Do those count as 4 of the 500 alleged "tips and tricks"? Many other features of the Kindle are described several times in the book. This actually confused a new Kindle user like myself; at first I assumed I was accidentally hitting some button that caused me to re-read sections of the book.
This was not a pleasant book to read for that reason, but there will be some value for some users. The book contains a long list of web links (in desperate need of editing) that includes few helpful pointers to resources for free (public domain) e-books. This information will be helpful for many new e-book readers like myself, but it's also probably nothing that I could not have learned with a few web searches such as "free ebooks"
It says you can e-mail him for a list of the links which can be used from your computer. Don't waste your time asking for this; I have e-mailed 4 times and NEVER GOT A REPLY!!!!
Save your money; wish I had!!
