M.G. has other excellent products, especially his Free Kindle Books blog, so I didn't hesitate to buy this Kindle Fire guide. I was especially looking forward to his tips on 'free content', as he phrased it in that blog. Unfortunately, the only free 'content' he really gets into is free books - a subject he has also covered in his Free Books ebook. While it is fine and good to reprise that info here, other types of content are not really discussed ... i.e. Music, Video, Apps, Newsstand, Blogs. No mention of the Free App of the Day, which is very easily accessed with the Fire; all the free Mp3s Amazon offers are not covered; Prime Videoes are given short shrift; and the free apps that give access to other free content, such as CrunchyRoll or news and blog readers, get no mention at all.

Also, the how to use the Fire info is very basic and simplistic (and rather repetitive) - sort of Fire for Utter Noobs - with screen by screen instructions, rather than having further useful info, such as what is on the settings screen, or even something as simple as how to see your Fire's email address in the settings instead of having to navigate to the Manage Your Devices page using the web browser.

Altogether a dissapointment for those familiar with Kindles and some basic understanding of electronic devices. Might be more useful to those for whom the Fire is their first Kindle. It is very well formatted and looks great on the Fire.

Have just glanced through it so far but it looks like it covers everything a new Kindle Fire owner needs to know. I've been a subscriber to Michael's blog since I got my K3 and have come to rely on him for tips and how-to's as well as his links and advice on how to get all kinds of free kindle books. I'm still learning all that there is to do with my Fire and having a wonderful time!

Thanks, Michael and have a wonderful Christmas!

If you like to search for tricks and tinker with your Kindle - this book makes it too easy. If, on the other hand you want help at your fingertips so you can USE your Kindle, this is a must have.

This How-To-Guide has a plethora of great information for setting up your device. I also enjoy having the Free Books email come everyday (and ofter moe then once a day). I have tried and liked sevealr authors that would not otherwise come to my attention.

As a new Fire hd owner and never having used any type of e reader before, I found this book extremely helpful. It is written in such an easily understood way, that there is no need to reread the explanations several times in order to “get it “.....

I would definitely recommend it!

Very informative and easy to follow. Especially useful for someone like myself who is not real savey in this high tech world we live in. I received a new Kindle Fire for Christmas and this was one of the first ebooks I ordered and downloaded to it. I'm so glad I did, as it was very helpful in getting me started. And the nice part about it is, I can always refer back to it anytime I need to.

This short guide is a very useful tool for those of us who are new Kindle users. Not being totally tech savy, it has helped me to use my Kindle Fire more effectively. I'm certain that this guide will be very helpful when I need to expand my Kindle horizons in the future.

I am always impressed with any book on Kindle that Michael Gallagher writes. He knows the Kindle inside and out and can tell you all about them because he has almost every kind and uses them. I don't have a Kindle Fire yet, but I am hoping to receive one for Christmas. I wanted to get a heads up on the difference in my Kindle Keyboard and the Kindle Fire and Michael did not disappoint me. I highly recommend this book for any Kindle Fire owner.
