I have been using Android for a few years and recently got Note 3, so I am pretty familiar with it and I've only had Samsung devices, so I am even more familiar with TouchWiz.
But this book introduced me to a lot of new features of Note 3 and a lot of good suggestions and tips.
Definitely more can be added, but form all the "guides" I have seen, pretty much the best one I have read.
Keep it up!
Quite likely, someone who's had a smart-phone prior to their Galaxy Note 3 WOULD find some (much?) of what's in this book too basic. But for me, it's been a GREAT help.
In addition, I'm looking forward to comparing it to the GN-3 book that Amazon has noted is coming out in a few more weeks (which I've already pre-ordered). My sense about any type of instructional book is that if I can glean just a few more truly helpful hints from the latest version, I'm glad to spend the money. As such, I'm hoping the "new book" will add to the knowledge I gained from "The 100% Unofficial User Guide."
By the way, I LOVE the phone. I've added the Kindle app, and enjoy reading books on my GN-3 more than on my Kindle....and the screen is plenty big enough to enjoy a variety of magazines, the daily NY Times, etc. PLUS, when I was recently in Istanbul and then Ukraine, and then Mexico, the phone and web reception was GREAT. (But, I understand that with the Verizon or AT&T versions that is not so, and one must engage in switching SIM chips or something....but my T-Mobile version, apparently good-to-go anywhere in the world, was glitch-free; I could just as well have been using it, effortlessly, in my hometown of Seattle!
I read through the whole book as well, and I found a few good tips in I but wasn't quite as amazed by the content. In fairness, that's because I had an SGN2 prior to buying the SGN3, and I'm a technogeek who explores my devices in detail to see what they'll do.
I removed a star because the book is advertised for even experienced users, and I think experienced users probably won't consider it worth the money for the few tips they might pick up. Experienced users will probably also already know there are better alternatives out there to some of the third-party apps the author recommends. In fairness again, I can't remember ever seeing a book advertisement that said, "Don't buy this unless you're a beginner," so this isn't what I could call deceptive advertising since I learned a few things myself.
If you are already a dedicated Android and/or Samsung user you might not find this as valuable. I would think an experienced user would know many of the ideas presented in this book. That said, there are likely many shortcuts covered that non-power users probably don't know. My lack of previous Android experience leaves me unable to address this.
Overall, a good book and I recommend, especially I'd you are switching OS's...
These phones come with NO instructions. If you don't have someone to hold your hand through figuring out ALL the programs, aps, and features you aren't getting what you paid for. This book fills the effective manual/teacher void.
