"Facebook For Dummies" is an excellent introduction to Facebook for anyone who may be thinking about joining this social media website. At just over 300 pages, it may take you a few days to read cover-to-cover (unless you are a speed reader), but you get some good background information on all the features (and history) of the site. I personally like knowing the "why" as well as the "how" and the authors have provided that for you in this book.

My only complaint about this book is that some of the graphics seem to have been based on captured screen images from the actualy Facebook website and did not match what I was seeing when I logged in. I can't really blame the authors for this because Facebook is a bit of a moving target. There have been several major changes (and many minor ones) just in the year and a half since I joined.

I think this book is worth your time and money IF you are one of those people who likes to be prepared BEFORE you jump headfirst into something new. For me, it was a better alternative to pestering my family and friends (who are were already Facebook members) with hundreds of questions, AND with a book you can always go back and re-read a chapter if you forgot something.

I am still confused, too much lengthy talk and not enough direct answers in layman terms. Each chapter refers me to another chapter and so on. I wish they would adhere to the "keep it simple" rule ... step by step, direct and to the point. On the other hand, maybe I am just not able to understand as good as some folks. This being said, it is, indeed, of some help but the drop down help lists on Facebook itself has provided a lot of my answers.
