While cheap, the guide provided nothing new as far as functionality or "cool" things Alexa can do. Much of the guide referred users to the Echo website where you can get the same info for nothing.
This book is easy to read and goes step by step with out any heavy technical words. It guides you though the set ups an installing and using the apps. It also tells you how to reset the Echo if you have any problems. Another thing I like was the Fun Phrases he listed. I think you will find this book very informative and entertaining.
There's an awful lot of stuff which Alexa (Echo's proxy) can do. I admit that I haven't taken the time to learn even a fraction of what it can do but I use it to control lights, listen to streaming radio, get time, temperature and forecast for my own city or other cities, not only for today but on days I specify (up to 10). Echo will give a news update (NPR news). I can ask Alexa about current movies including times and theaters. I'm not a lot into sports but there is a myriad of sports information available. Echo can be used to control heat if you spent the $100 plus for a smart thermostat.Back to the lights, I can control the intensity of the Philips bulbs and, I understand, the color even though I haven't yet learned how to do that. Overall, I'm pretty happy with Echo. Oh yes, you can play music, loud or soft.
It is an OK Guide but it still does answer basic question about operating the Echo, I understand it's a lot of trail and error, still I have yet to get it to make a successful list of anything, I can't get to do anything with a calendar, I can't find a calendar on goole for it to work with echo, the guide is only useful for asking it dumb questions like "Alexa Beam up" and stuff like that and that only amusing for so long. I want it to be able to actually tell me stuff, or do the Jeopordy thing like on TV which neither can I get it to do. It doesn;t know whay Jeopordy is much less what the bonus question are? And the Guide says nothing about such functions, On Wikipedia Articles I always have to say Wikipeda in the question which it doesn't say in the guide, that would have been helpful, And you have to ask for the Wikipedia stuff a lot just to get a definition of what you are asking about, I wanted to know about the Frontal lobe frunction of the brain, again I had to wikipedia it, You have to be very specific with her. And the guide was not much help.
I wouldn't even give it 1 start, but that was the least I could select. There was no value in any part of this book and there were only a few pages. It says it was updated for 2016 (very misleading) as it did not list any of the "newer" skills that have been added. It is a waste of time any 99 cents.
This is the best Echoe book I have. It was priced right and great for being a manua on the Echoe.This manual was updated since the Echoe has been out for a while. My Okdest Daughter bought one when they first came out.
Read this for Alexa questions if for no other reason. Read the back of the book first. The rest is the simple set up instructions.
Ok folks if you purchased the Echo and aren't getting much from it besides the weather, news and songs you need to get this guide it really helps!
