I have found a number of tactics and techniques in this book that I am now able to use in real life.
This book has been a real lifesaver. I don't know what I would have done without it. I no longer have to cry myself to sleep at night, now that I have it for comfort.
It was able to provide enough instruction to be able to not only repair my car ( using the section on tractor maintenance ) but is able to advise me on other things such as choosing good combinations for my crops and self-defence techniques using only farming implements.
Without this book my life, and farm was incomplete.
Viewed through another lens, FarmVille for Dummies is a indispensable guide to the indoctrination of thinking individuals into mindless servitude of the all-knowing Zynga Corporation.
Oh, and cows.
Between the scintillating text and the incredible full color pictures, this treasure of literature truly is the end-all of writing and (full color) art. Nothing will ever surpass this; there is no need for anything to again be published. We might as well just declare the publishing industry (and, really Western Civilization) over with the announcement of this book. This is a pinnacle that cannot be surpassed.
One word of warning, though: if you are afraid of hard truths, this book may not be for you. It contains (in full color) the deepest secrets of life and of love. You will weep, you will laugh, you'll find yourself living joyously, working harder and taking on causes like stopping foreign dictators with Facebook "likes" without fear.
And your farm - your Facebook farm - will blossom like a genetically modified sunflower. You'll have people queuing up to farm your virtual crops for you. In fact, you'll have people so enthralled with your farm that they'll want to come over and clean your house, do your yardwork and cook your food for you - things that you will no longer have time for because you've become a Farmville God.
The only thing lacking in this incredible tome are more pictures of the cast from Jersey Shore. But I suppose that perfection is just not for this world; in the mean time, this is close as you can get.
Simply put, it didn't.
Half of the book (maybe even more) was dedicated to starting your farm from the very beginning, and it explained VERY thoroughly what each icon was for.
If you're just starting off with Farmville and you just can't get a hang of it, this book will be great for you. On the other hand, if you're well versed in how to navigate the game and perform basic in-game tasks, you will get little use out of this particular "For Dummies" publication.
