I like this book...a lot...but where to start. Well let's start with full disclosure. I like, maybe love the "My _________" series. I generally think they're well written and totally approachable. I've used them to unlock the secrets of many phones, eReaders, and now tablets and I've used them to guide buying decisions when thinking about making a big gadget purchase, but they're written by many different authors with different styles and different strengths and I'm always aware that some day I'll be disappointed by an author that doesn't quite make the grade.

Today is not that day and Eric Butow is not an author that's going to disappoint anyone. My Galaxy Tab is as near to comprehensive as I've seen (from where the sensors and physical buttons are on your tablet to finding, downloading, and using apps). If you're new to your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 or 7.0 this is the book for you. These units make up the main focus of the book, but it does have a little run down of the Galaxy tab offerings so even if you're still trying to make up your mind on which model to get there may be something for you here.

The book itself is broken into 15 chapters:

1. The Galaxy Tab Universe
2. Meeting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
3. Setting Up the Galaxy Tab 2
4. Customizing Android 4
5. Browsing the Web
6. Sending Email and Instant Messages
7. Using the Calendar and Contacts to Simplify Your Life
8. Playing Music and Video
9. Reading and Managing Books
10. Capturing and Managing Photos
11. Using Maps, Navigation, Local, and Latitude
12. Enhancing Your Galaxy Tab 2 with Apps
13. Adding New Hardware (keyboards and sd cards etc)
14. Finding Galaxy 2 Accessories
15.

When I ordered this book, I only noticed the authors' names. I don't think the publisher was listed, or I forgot who it was. Turned out to be a Que Publication! I love their books and have used them before. They always seem to have the answers to even the most obscure questions, including both explanatory text and beautiful illustrations. In this case that means pics of all the screens involved in performing tasks, step-by-step, screen-by-screen. I'd recommend this after-market guide to anyone who intends to not only use but understand their tablet. I'm just glad that it didn't arrive sooner or it might have been stolen along with my original tablet this past Sunday night. As it happened, I got my replacement tab on Monday and the book today. Perfect timing. Too bad about the other tablet. No matter what, it takes a while to reload your apps. Learn how to back up your tablet and do it! This book will take you gently by the hand and walk you through your trauma w/o any drama. Pardon the sniffling...

This book is very helpful and easy to understand. Pictured instructions with margin notes corresponding to the pictures show each phase of setting up and using the Galaxy tab 2. Everything from music, photos, email, internet navigation , apps, and book reading. Plus much more with full color easy to understand instructions. Very helpful . This book will show you how to fully use you're tab 2.

I ordered this book, hoping it would be a more concise manual than what I got with my tablet. It wasn't.

The information in the book was basic, and didn't go into enough detail for the different features and functions I wanted to learn about in order to use my tablet right away.

I was very disappointed with the lack of in-depth instructions, and now am looking for a better resource (maybe have to resort to downloading the complete manual, which is very hard to refer to while you're using the same gadget the manual is loaded on.)

Being that the Galaxy Tab2 7inchwas my first tablet, and I'm unfamiliar with them and Android operating system, this was a very handy book/ guide for learning about it and setting it up.

One improvement I'd consider is more information on storage/ data and memory management (which is also a reflection on the Tab2). Being that the 8GB storage on the 7inch tab is a drawback, it would be nice to have more information in the book on how to use a microSD card and how to manage internal memory on the tablet. Most retailers are telling people that adding a microSD card is an easy way to increase storage on the Tab2 but this is somewhat misleading and perhaps any future editions of this book can discuss how to manage data storage.

The book is one of the best, and only, pieces of good documentation for the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7. I covers over 90% of the things I wanted to find. Good clear and and step-by-step instructions with accurate pictures because it covers both the 10 and the 7 inch models. The index makes it very easy to just find what you want to find without wading through other subjects. BTW, I shopped around for this book and I saved about $12 with Amazon. The book was delivered sooner than expected. I compared this to the "Dummies" series book and I found this book to be superior. Eric Butlow does a fine job explaining all you need to know. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with the Samsung tablet.
