This review is from: Cut the Cord: All You Need to Know to Drop Cable (Kindle Edition)
As someone who has dabbled in alternatives to traditional cable over the years, I enjoyed the very comprehensive overview in this e-book. I've played around with many of the options it talks about, but not to the depth and breadth the author has. He's uncovered nuggets of functionality that I never knew existed and explored areas that I've only heard about. If he has favorites, you wouldn't really know, as he does an excellent job providing broad coverage of different brands and options. I learned new things in just about every chapter and especially enjoyed the "Product in a nutshell" summaries. I'd recommend the book even just for the summaries! He also provides live links throughout the book to get more information which makes the e-book more of a living document that can be continually referenced.
If there is one negative, it wouldn't be about the book, but rather that the book highlights the politics and money involved in licensing rights and content ownership. I wish that the content owners cared as much about getting their content to paying consumers as they were in protecting their relationships with traditional brick and mortar dinosaurs like Comcast, Verizon, etc.
Overall, an excellent (and quick) read and something that everyone who is fed up with $200 monthly cable/satellite bills should own.
