I saw a handful of books on Evernote on Amazon, and opted for a printed version so I could highlight important things I learned and then pass the book on to my co-workers. I chose Evernote for Dummies because my familiarity with the 'for Dummies' series was almost a guarantee the book would provide a good overview with helpful tips and short, easy-to-read sections--and I was right.
Particularly valuable were the platform-specific instructions. For any particular feature, the author explained how it worked on Windows, Mac, iWhatever, Android, and Blackberry; for any example of web interaction, he gave separate instructions for Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer. This made for quick reading too because I could simply skip over all the sections related to platforms I did not need.
The only thing I wish this book had more of was "Best Practices". If I am truly going to fill Evernote with hundreds--and then thousands--of notes, receipts, screen shots, photos of items in stores, blogs, great quotes, Kindle/Nook notes, etc., I would like to have seen some real-life examples of how to organize it all. The author encourages organization and explains (briefly) how to do it, but he does not give a practical example of how to do that with thousands of items. So I am a little worried about leaping in the deep end lest I inadvertently develop a poor organization structure. I realize Evernote is not rigid, so his examples might imply only one correct way when that's not true, but that still leaves me wanting. Perhaps the forums or some online videos will expand on that.
I highly recommend this book. It took me about 2-3 hours of thoughtful reading, including both highlighting key points and testing a couple of things I knew I would be doing right away. This book was an excellent purchase for me and saved me many hours of trial and error and even hours of scouring the Evernote forum.
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.
