The technique of "splinterview," in which Bufo interviews Bufo, works extremely well. With splinterview, Bufo, the interviewer asks a question about the Fire and then Bufo, the author responds. Topics are covered in a non-intimidating easy-to-understand format.
Love Your Kindle Fire: The ILMK Guide to Amazon's Entertablet is a valuable tool for Kindle Fire owners who are well-versed in technology and those who are not. Everyone who reads Bufo's book will learn from it.
This guidebook contains descriptions of tablet basics. It also includes specific controls on the Fire, what the options are, and how to access them.
It also includes descriptions of various content categories for the Fire, including applications (or "apps") and the internet. The pointer to the Pulse app, preinstalled on the Fire, was worth the price of the book for me.
Is there more to be said on the operation of the Fire? Sure. I've still got questions myself. But this will get you started with some confidence.
* By way of context, I had to locate and download my iPod Touch's user manual before I could figure out that one needed to press the circular thing to make the device do something. I did manage to figure out the Fire's "on" sequence more quickly!
Update: the author indicates that he has updated the new version with descriptions of additional apps. I have not seen the new version, but the descriptions in the blog were very useful.
Update 29 Nov 2011: I see the typos have been fixed the the book updated, so I am changing my review to 5 stars. Oddly, Amazon removed my review for a while. When I contacted Support they acted like they did not know what I was talking about, but eventually, after about a wekk, the review did return.

The kindle should have come with a booklet of instructions, not having to buy instructions. I was very disappointed. There are some people who are not computer savvy etc.Published on December 13, 2012 by amg
