I ordered this book prior to publication and was pleasantly surprised to receive it sooner than anticipated. I ordered this book because the downloadable user's manual from Motorola falls way short of hitting the target. I want to begin with the fact that I thought I had figured out just about everything there was to find in the XOOM which I am a really big fan of. I was sure wrong. This book has more tips, hints and solid information than I could ever have imagined. The author suggests the book as a reference rather than a sit down and read. However, I did sit down and read the whole thing cover to cover with my XOOM in my lap. I could only read a page or two before I had to try something new or change a setting that I didn't know about. The author clearly knows the XOOM and all of it's ins and outs as well as it's warts. After having read this book and having applied much of the content I value my XOOM even more than ever. This book clearly added much value. The pictures and layout are excellent and the 5th Wave cartoons that begin many sections just add to the enjoyment. The authors dry humor and wit added to the fun of reading and exploring.
After reading, I had two questions that weren't answered in the book. I e-mailed the author and received a reply overnight that answered them both. If you want a book that will enhance your XOOM experience, this is the one.

This book is a good introduction to the basics of the Xoom and usage of the Android OS used on the Xoom. The author's writing is clear and easy to understand. That being said, I do wish that there was a little more depth in describing each subject's details and inner workings. Worth the money. I keep a copy of this book on my Xoom using the Amazon Kindle app so that I may reference it's informational how-to guides.

Excellent reference manual, has been big help, two Xooms in family. Have to share! Well written, not over my head. Price I assume is standard. There have been some updates since book was wrote, but author gives references for update. Thanks to Mr. Rathbone. Only regret is price drop a week after I bought, oh well.
