5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners! March 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
While the Kindle is fairly simple to use and set up, for some of us more technically challenged (and our older relatives), there are some problems that can prove frustrating. From connecting to WiFi to setting up automatic storage on the Cloud, this guide was extremely useful for both me and my grandmother (new Kindle users).

The tone is professional, yet friendly. The language is simple and the explanations are patient. Because the review is quite inclusive (of various models and options), it sometimes begs to be skimmed, but it maintains a conciseness and clarity that I appreciated. I think some of the instructions would have benefited from screenshots or photographs, but their lack did not negatively affect my understanding of the issues at hand.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone switching over to the Kindle or to a different Kindle model!

It looks like someone took a book about Kindle Fire and tried to edit it into a book for the Paperwhite. But they left in lots of Fire-specific stuff such as the Silk browser.

A specific example is the beginning of Chapter 7, Installing and Launching Apps: "After setting up the Kindle Paperwhite, users can spend leisure time enjoying books and magazine on a high speed, full color display". The Kindle Paperwhite, of course, is a black and white e-ink display.

This chapter then goes on to explain how to install apps from the Amazon App Store -- which can't be used by the Paperwhite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wasted money. June 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
No drawings, mot much explanation, it is just too abbreviated
I found the "paper white for Dummies" to be a much better book. Wasted my money on the Definitive User Guide.

When it comes to buying third party technology guides you face a decision between two major "classes" of books. There are those from respected, well-recognized brands (your missing manuals, dummies series, etc.) and there are those that come from lesser-known publishers. The well-known brands produce quality books often with full color pictures, elaborate layouts, and an extra layer of polish and you pay a hefty premium for it. The lesser-known brands often forgo some of that polish in an attempt to keep their prices down while still providing you the information you'll need to get the most out of your device.

To me the difference is like the difference between having grandma bake you a cake and going to a fancy bakery for it. In the end they're both going to taste great. The bakery's cake might look a little fancier, but it's going to cost you a whole lot more. So if you need that polish (grandma probably isn't going to bake you the perfect 3 tiered wedding cake) then pay the premium, but if what you're really looking for is a functional product that does what its supposed to do (taste great or in this case teach you about your new device) I'd look at the less expensive alternative.

*****

So where does this book stand on our grandma/bakery scale?

To start with, the Paperwhite isn't a wedding cake. Sure it can be confusing at times and that's why we need these guides, but it's much simpler than say a full computer. So for me this is a point for the small publisher. Since the device they describe is not terribly complex I didn't find that the lack of pictures detracted much from my learning. The text alone was plenty to direct my button pushing.

The book has a very professional execution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Manual for my Paperwhite March 18, 2013
By Jadamix
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got the paperwhite as a gift during christmas, but haven't really got around to using it until lately. I downloaded this manual to bring myself up to speed on the basics. While the device is pretty intuitive and self-explanatory, this manual does a good job of going over everything you need to know, plus its cheap.

The book has a few typographical errors and absolutely NO illustrations at all. This limits the effectiveness of the book to be anything buy just OK. Sometimes it is vague in its references to functions and does not full explain things like how to execute a function except in a vague manner. I do not mean to unjustly criticize the work, but it is a light weight get started guide rather than a definitive guide. I think that title was put on the cover to get it sold because it is in competition with several other user guides.

The book does not take the place of a small starter guide. Without the help of a diagram it was hard to follow. I am struggling with the features of the paperwhite. Have gone back to the guide several times and did not find it helpful. How do I access word definitions. Is there an easy way to trace a character back. In a history book such as I am currently reading there are many key players. Hard to remember from one reading to the next. This guide was not helpful.

The book is well written and informative. It could, however, have more detail, and pictures would help those of us not of the electronic generation.
