3.0 out of 5 stars The Good, the Unnecessary, and the Unknown March 29, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has three main topics. If any one of them helps you, it's worth the price.

The author has assembled the best set of web links for e-books I have ever encountered. First, there is a set of links into different parts of the Amazon Kindle store that makes searching and shopping easy. Jumping back and forth between this book and the iPhone's Safari browser sounds clunky, but is easier that doing the same searches using the browser alone. And the links to free e-book web sites--most of which have nothing to do with the Kindle, by the way--are numerous and usefully organized. Both of these sets of links will save you time and money.

The main topic of the book--how to use the iPhone Kindle app--was reasonably well-written, complete, and seemed error-free. It also seemed unnecessary. I read Windwalker's book about a week after downloading the Kindle app. Everything I read I had already figured out either from the app's help file or just by using it. If you are able to purchase, download, and begin reading this book, you don't really need it. Not for this section, anyway.

The book's last section contains generous excerpts from the author's book on the Kindle 2. I don't have one and don't anticipate getting one, so I only skimmed this material. No comments, good or bad.

Overall, I recommend buying this book if you plan to read books on your iPhone--or even if you don't, but want a good set of links to free e-books. It's well worth a buck. And your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment February 17, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm glad this was only a 99-cent purchase. The description sounded like there were all kinds of features in the Kindle for iPhone app that were going to be revealed, but that was simply not the case! Granted, there are lots of weblinks to other sites that are reasonably well-organized, but anyone with any ability to navigate the web could come up with these links and not have to scroll through pages and pages of links, trying to find the right one. And if I have an iPhone, then why do I need all the pages on the Kindle? I don't have a Kindle; that's why I bought this "book". I'm sorry, but I found this a waste of money. Glad it wasn't much.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Kindle Required September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having Kindle on my IPhone has developed into a wonderful companion and the fact that it sychs with my Kindle allows my IPHONE to be a multitasker and keeps both in the same location. So I may pickup my Kindle with the larger fonts and other capability when I am at home and travel around with my IPHONE; a wonderful convenience. This document un-locks the how to make it happens, worth the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected... February 1, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really dissapointed by this title. Instead of being the ultimate guide for using the iPhone for Kindle Application, what you get is essentially just a bunch of links to various parts of the Amazon store, by category. I'm puzzled why someone would click the links while using their iPhone and suffer through regular webpages when they could more easily search for whatever they what using their iPhone application and get the web pages optimized for the iPhone.

Granted, 99 cents ain't much of an investment, and Stephen Windwalkers other guides are in fact very informative and well done, but this one just falls short...

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat as all get out July 30, 2012
By J2014G
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Works like a champ. Pleasantly surprised when putting down the Kindle and using my IPOD Touch a few days later. The IPOD immediately asked if I wanted to pick up in the book where the Kindle left off. Cool. Going back to Kindle it picked up whare the IPOD left off. I just learned there is a share feature to allow a 2 week reading of books from the local library or from a friends book. Wow. Our county is building a new brick and mortar library. With Ebook technology I'm begining to wonder why.

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.
