I received a Kindle 1 as a birthday gift back in November and followed the simple Amazon directions to download books and then read them. This worked. However, when I went to the Amazon website and read conversations with people that were doing more with the Kindle than I could understand, I purchased Windwalker's book. His ad offered information about "more" ways to use this revolutionary toy and I wanted more. His first book opened the door to understanding how this not just a reader, but a mini computer capable of bringing a huge world of books and information to my fingertips. Now my Kindle experience was great.

By the time Kindle 2 came out, I was way hooked on this product, bought it and of course then immediately read his Kindle 2 information. Although I really enjoyed the struggle related to Kindle 1 (I have been working with computers since the early 80's) - his Kindle 2 book puts readers just a tiny click away from anywhere they want to go and any books they want to read on this marvelous machine. Now the experience was terrific.

Windwalker has made it easy to enjoy all the benefits of the Kindle 1 and 2. His advice and ideas are very valuable and the links are perfect. By the way, I'm a 73 year old woman and I find everything about this technology fantastic.

Apparently this hasn't gotten much past the step of changing the former title from Kindle to Kindle 2. There are some changes to the Kindle 2 system that aren't corrected in the book. Check the forums. Hopefully the author will get around to making the corrections.

Personally, I think it's lame to release a "Beta version" of a book anyway. Books shouldn't become like software. That's the slippery slope we get into with eBooks. It should either be finished and ready for release or not. Period.

Also, save your money and read the well-written manual that comes installed on your Kindle. There are lots of tips and tricks already in there.

I ordered The Complete User's Guide to the Amazing Amazon Kindle II the same day I found out that my husband had ordered my Kindle. I had already relied on Stephen's advice for my original Kindle, and knew he would have excellent tips and explanations for the new version.
His included links turned out to be a double bonus. I refer to the book often, and really feel that it has enhanced my usage of the Kindle. This book really is a must have for any Kindle owner who wants to get the most of their ereader!

Most of the information in this book is included in the free guide that was included on my new Kindle 2. The first half of the book reads like a an advertisement for the Kindle. The second half is like a beginner's guide to using the web. I am a happy new Kindle user, but I was not impressed with this guide.

The writing is generally more casual and entertaining than a typical user manual, but it's also poorly structured and puzzlingly repetitive at times. For example, the author explains how the Kindle 2 has two built-in speakers but also can be used with headphones in four different sections of the book. Do those count as 4 of the 500 alleged "tips and tricks"? Many other features of the Kindle are described several times in the book. This actually confused a new Kindle user like myself; at first I assumed I was accidentally hitting some button that caused me to re-read sections of the book.

This was not a pleasant book to read for that reason, but there will be some value for some users. The book contains a long list of web links (in desperate need of editing) that includes few helpful pointers to resources for free (public domain) e-books. This information will be helpful for many new e-book readers like myself, but it's also probably nothing that I could not have learned with a few web searches such as "free ebooks"

Even at $1.99 it is a rip off. Nothing but links and some of them don't even work.

It says you can e-mail him for a list of the links which can be used from your computer. Don't waste your time asking for this; I have e-mailed 4 times and NEVER GOT A REPLY!!!!

Save your money; wish I had!!

I've worked in the computer industry for over 30 years, and usually have no problems figuring out how to use technology related products, and so I wasn't sure if I would need Stephen's guide. I was pleasantly surprised not only at the quality of writing, but also in the detailed lists of links and features of the Kindle 2 that I could not find documented elsewhere. Just the tips on the best ways for setting up the Kindle browser and how move over photos was worth it. So, even if you are good with technology related products, you'll save time with Stephen's guide.

My new Kindle 2 actually arrived a day earlier than I expected and I love it. However, I knew that I didn't really have time to do the exploring on my own so started looking for a guide. I knew I'd made the right choice when a "Click Here" didn't connect and I sent an email to the author and received a message back in less than twenty-four hours. That problem has been removed already. He also allows us to download the book to a computer letting us read his instructions/suggestions and play with the Kindle at the same time. I have joined Kindle Nation and am happy with the entire Kindle experience. I'm out of the country right now and the instructions to download to my computer and then to the Kindle have been a lifesaver. It's so easy to read all that I want and not have to worry about finding the books and disposing of them when I finish. Luggage is meant for clothing. The Kindle makes it easy to travel and still relax with a favorite read. The Guide makes it all that much easier. Thank you, Stephen Windwalker!!
