This book showed up the gaps in my own computer skills and knowledge and put me on the path to fill those gaps from advices elsewhere.
Perhaps others are more au fait with word processing than myself and that I am, therefore, below average in my facility in those applications- I will accept criticism in that respect since the author clearly titles the book From Word to Kindle and my expectations were wrong in hoping the book would be titled ‘Through Word to Kindle.’
A good, easy to follow read, if you are familiar with WORD.
Later when I added pictures and checked with the official KIndle instructions from Amazon's advice, I got confused because of conflicting instructions.
In the end I had to start it all over again. Also I found these instructionsE- books very confusing because of the many jumps from one system to another (Windows < > mac + different versions). It is difficult to follow instructions on a KIndle format, it doesn't allow one to have a clear view. I had to use it on my computer and copy-paste the important data and print it, in order to get the clear picture.
Organizing a KIndle E-book for the first time is not a piece of cake, in particular if you have many pictures in it and ove 750 pages.
It took 28 attempts of conversions through all the different softwares to finally get it right. Of course once you've experienced it all, I suppose the next time you're prepared.
This is an easy-to-use guide that I literally kept open and followed step-by-step as I worked on preparing my manuscript. Of course, there were still times I had a specific question that I had to research elsewhere, but this book is just the right mix of "big picture" (which so many other formatting books seemed to lack) and "detail" (which so many other formatting books seemed to lack).
I am also definitely going to check out some of Shepard's other books on publishing. I'm sure they'll be just as helpful.
