2.0 out of 5 stars Very basic and lacking an index January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because there are few available for Mint.com. The best rated one is only for Android devices and I don't have an Android, So I went for what seemed second best. But second best barely satisfies my need for information as to how to make the best use of Mint.com. There was very little "new" information to be gotten that I didn't already know from a day or two of just nosing around my actual Mint.com account. What I found least useful was its lack of an index. That forced me to hunt through the TOC every time I wanted to know more about a particular feature. For example, when I decided that I wanted to work on my transaction rules there isn't an index (in the Kendle version at least there isn't) to just look up "rules". Searching through the TOC also didn't help. So either this feature is just ignored or I could not find it. Bottom line: sorely needs and index, and there could be more discussion of "hidden" tips and tricks about Mint.com that goes beyond the obvious description of the service.

I bought this book hoping it would help me with some of the issues I was having with Mint.com. I did not want a lesson on investments, money managing etc. The book was no help at all.
