Format: Paperback
I'm currently using this book to become more adept with YouTube and it is very informative and, as with most of the Dummies books,is well laid out. However this book was written in 2007 and four years, in the computer world, is an eternity. As a result, some parts of the book can be a bit confusing as it won't match up with the current version of YouTube. The first time I realized this problem was using the chapter on groups to try to use that feature. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't find the parts of the web page being referred to until I did a Google search on 'YouTube Groups" and found posts discussing their elimination from the web site last year. That's the better part of a whole chapter discussing a feature that no longer exists. How to use groups is again discussed in a later chapter and I have also run into some instances where the interface has been streamlined so it no longer matches up with instructions and illustrations in the book. That's why I give the book only four out of five stars. It's because about 20 percent needs to be updated.

This book is good for someone who really has no idea about YouTube and its history and wants some basic information.

However, it was published in 2007 and the information on the current version of YouTube is non existent.
Whereas it does have information as to what types of accounts are available on YT and the guidelines of what is acceptable and what is not.

But when I say the information needs updating a few examples: the book still mentions the 1 to 5 star rating system of videos which has been changed long ago to 'thumbs up or down' and there is an entire chapter on how to post You Tube videos to MySpace and no mention AT ALL of Facebook anywhere.

Also there is no information regarding the YouTube partnership program and all the screen capture pics are from the old version of You Tube. The books info only barely reflects the You Tube of today, it looks like the You Tube of 2007.

Really there are very few people who would benefit from a book like this with such outdated material. Its time for the authors to do a revised edition.

Things on Youtube have changed a lot since this book was written. Its illustrations don't match the revised look of Youtube, and the data entry points are no longer relevant. I don't understand why this book is still being sold. It was a complete waste of money.

I had a few specific problems I wanted to solve when I got this book, but when it arrived, I found that the YouTube screens referenced in the book were either changed (hints no longer applied) or were gone entirely. For instance, the boo would tell me to go to a specific page and click on a specific tab or button, but that tab or button was simply nowhere to be found on the page. It seems that YouTube is evolving so fast that major changes had occurred since the book was written and, at least for the things I was interested in learning, it was mostly useless.

Written only a couple years ago means a lot has changed in this fast paced online world as well as the Tubesphere. A good read but don't forget that YouTube has gone through a full face lift since the writing of this book as well as ongoing major changes. Most important is that YT changes parameters on a regular basis. So this is no "Rosetta Stone" but interesting and good info to the newbie YouTuber. Better one to read IMHO is "YouTube, Climbing the charts"

I'm disappointed. This book is from 2007. I suppose it was pretty good for its time. But a lot has happened and changed since then. This book has not helped me with some of the "deeper" aspects of YouTube because some of the current features had not been developed in 2007. This book doesn't teach much that you can't learn on your own. My fault. I guess I didn't read the fine print to see the copyright date. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I ordered this book with Blogging for Dummies because I wanted to get a clear understanding how to use blogging along with Youtube and similar media without having to do the trial and error thing. These books are well worth the time and investment if you want to get up to speed fast, and I love them.

Avoid letting the title of this book fool you. This is a very useful book for the beginner and for the person who is interested in making the most out of the YouTube experience. It is filled with a lot of valuable insight and is put in a format that is quite easy to follow. In my opinion, this can easily be a good reference book for both the beginner and for the far more advanced user of YouTube.
