The book covers everything, from downloading and installing the program, through starting it and creating a note, and on to integrating it with other applications. It is thorough without being pedantic and conversational without being simplistic. Style is very much a matter of personal preference, but I found the tone of the book absolutely perfect.
In addition, readers of other "...for Dummies" books know that the authors often try hard to be cutsie. For me, a little of that goes a long way--a long, LONG way--because I want solid information, not lame humor. This book is completely free of that kind of cutsiness. The author is clearly a professional, and he treats the reader with respect.
Bottom line: If you need a guide to Evernote's features and operation, this is the book to buy. It's packed with good, solid information and written in an easy-to-understand, adult manner.
However, I'm not selling Evernote here-- I'm talking about the Evernote for Dummies book.
On to that book: Evernote for Dummies fits pretty well alongside other for Dummies books that I have seen: it starts extremely basic. As in, the first couple of chapters really are just about justifying even having Evernote. After that, it is the very basics of usage: how to sign up, how to create a note, how to install on more than one device. Most users either figure these things out or don't bother with the software.
The next several chapters give the intermediate type of information that some users will have figured out on their own or with the Evernote help system. It's plainly presented and easy to apply, just like the instructions on device-specific usage.
The closing chapters give a brief look towards advanced use, but not a lot of detail is present.
Summary run down: if you are new to Evernote, it's useful. I wish I had used this a year ago before I fought through learning these basics of the system. The drawback is that software moves pretty quickly, especially when you are dealing with a multi-platform program like Evernote and some of the features/screenshots are going to be different soon, if not already.
It's a good cheap guide if you want that in print, but you can gather most of this info on the web through Evernote's own tutorials. The biggest benefit is the shared notebook on Evernote from the author, but that's accessible to anyone who searches for the Evernote for Dummies Notebook--you don't need the book for that.
3 stars: not indispensable, but helpful.
The format of the Dummies books is aging fast. I love the detailed table of contents that make it so easy to find something, but I hate the page layout. It is so busy that its easy to lose the information given. There is also a lot of repetition in a book like this, and if you have ever used Evernote you won't need much of it.
Overall, I like Evernote Essentials better because it just gives you the information you will actually use, its prettier, and it's the original (Evernote actually hired the author after he wrote it). That being said, if you already have the Essentials book, this Dummies title may give you a few extra tips. The last section on tips for business and school had some great ideas and I picked up some info on how to use Evernote with my Kindle that I was not aware of. Recommended for Evernote junkies who want to learn a little more or newbies looking for a deal ($15 bucks is a great price, half of the Essentials guide).
