2.0 out of 5 stars Wow....just Wow... December 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting much for the price, but I've got to say that I really didn't get my money's worth.

Like many Kindle owners, I kept seeing this title pop-up everywhere. My initial reaction was that it was a scam - some guy trying to con as many people into buying a cheap book as possible (hey, if 10,000 people buy a book for a few bucks, it all adds up, right?).

Turns out there's actually quite a bit of content here. I didn't find it particularly useful, but there are lots of words - don't worry that you're only going to get a two-pager with a few web links. That's not the case.

After reading through this, though, I was left with a few thoughts I hope my fellow Kindle readers will appreciate:

1) It's not a scam, but let's be clear that advertising for the author's website/blog, "Kindle Nation" is probably a big reason this book exists. I can understand pitching it a bit up-front (nothing wrong with a bit of self-promotion), but there's an entire chapter in the middle of the book entitled, "How to Contact Kindle Nation"...

2) It's the Kindle-owner feel-good book of the year! Way too much of this "book" focuses on telling you how great your Kindle is. I agree, of course. The Kindle is awesome, but most Kindle owners should know this without having to read a book about it. :) It's kind of like buying a new TV, and then going out to buy a book about how great your new TV is... Oh, and this new edition talks about getting this free content WITHOUT NEEDING A KINDLE!!! If you pay any attention to the Amazon website, you'll already know that there are Kindle apps for all kinds of devices... No need to buy a book to tell you that.

3) I didn't actually learn anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good purchase for a new Kindle user December 23, 2010
By Jetpack
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've only had a Kindle for about 3 months now. In that time, I found a Kindle blog that I enjoy which referred this book.

As I don't know as much about the Kindle as others, I'm finding this book to be pretty darn useful. And, I think I will get much more use from it as time passes.

I've found the links to be handy, as I have taken the suggestion of the author to put this on my Kindle for PC, as well.

It's also written in a very amusing manner, as well. I do disagree with the author that the lighted cover is a good deal at $60 (I think that is much too expensive), but that is a pretty minor quibble, indeed.

If you know a ton about your Kindle, this probably isn't necessary. For a newer owner, I think it will be quite handy. You will find handy information about free book sites (including Baen)and info. about some of the history. Also various interesting trivia - such as Oprah admitting she had never read Dickens. Odd that she recommends a book she hasn't read, but there you are.

For the cost of 99 cents, this wasn't a hard purchase for me to make.

Edit - Keep in mind, this was for a Kindle 3 - must be out of date for the Fire and Touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Kindle Owners December 31, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have mentioned, I wasn't sure what I was going to get for 99cents --- But I pay that much for a song on iTunes, it seemed like a good idea at the time . . . and I am grateful that I bought it.

I'm surprised at the reviewers that say that the only folks to whom this may appeal is those new to the Kindle. While SOME of the information is in the User's Guide, I found much in Steve's book that was quite helpful.

For me the book was a steal if only because of the Chapter on Calibre. As a long time user of eReader on the Palm, I had several books that I was hoping to convert for reading on my Kindle. Books that are not (yet) available on the Kindle and that it would be nice to have readily available electronically.

The other thing that I really liked about Free for All is that it is current and up-to-date. I have also downloaded Michael Gallagher's "Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts" but that book has some way to go to be current for the latest generation (3) of the Kindle. It is readily apparent that Steve's book is current (December 2010).

Yes, he touts his blog. The blog is an excellent resource for books. But there is so much more to this book than just mentioning Kindle Nation that I really have to wonder if a couple of the other reviewers and I even downloaded the same book.

I like having all of the information in one place in my "Kindle Resources" collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, Timely, and Funny! December 22, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a new Kindle owner without a clue about how to use it. This book comes right in time to prevent me the embarrassment of calling Kindle-aware friends every few minutes to ask dumb questions. But first, a full disclosure, I know Stephen Windwalker, who published a book of mine a couple of years ago.

This book gives three huge benefits to the Kindle owner:

1. It provides a gaggle of how-to instructions for finding your way around the Kindle itself, for getting your hands on the free books and other resources you can access, and for learning the different ways you can "read" all that free stuff (e.g. text to speech, audiobooks, etc.)

2. The book also broadens your view of the world of Kindle, from explaining how to access Kindle resources without an actual Kindle e-reader to how to make use of the free-for-life WiFi capability of the Kindle to use its own web browser for non-Kindle activities.

3. Finally, I found Windwalker's discussions of the issues raised by the astounding growth of e-reading and of free books really enlightening. He outlines the various points-of-view and tries to project the continuing changes to the life of the book that we can expect. He talks about "the politics of free books," looking head-on at the impact on writers, who want to sell books, and mainstream publishers, who are trying to figure out their own attitude to this new world.

And did I mention that he peppers his writing with funny one-liners, puns and wry commentary?

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is new enough to the Kindle to be looking for a basic understanding of the devise or experienced enough to welcome an in-depth pointer to all the tons of free stuff you can fill it with. Fast-paced, plain-spoken and downright fun, "Kindle Free For All" boils down the enormous archive of knowledge in this top expert's brain and hands it to you in a clear, easy-to-use guide.

More About the Author

I cut my teeth as a writer covering the Cape Cod Baseball League and other sports for what was then called the Cape Cod Standard-Times and later the Boston Globe, studied the craft of writing with Robert Lowell, Kurt Vonnegut, Monroe Engel and Carter Wilson, and served as Fiction Editor of the Harvard Advocate. In 1999 I founded a small independent publishing company called Harvard Perspectives Press (named after two of my favorite institutions from my undergraduate years, the Harvard House of Pizza and the Harvard Wine Company), and it has done astonishingly well, with a couple of niche bestsellers, other work that we have been proud to published, and now some stunning successes with the Kindle publishing platform. I have three wonderful children, and along the way I've been an author, a community organizer, a bookseller, a publishing executive, a marathoner, an elected official, and some other things unsuitable for mention here.
