Scrivener is a great application and a wonderful tool for writers, and if you'd like a good resource in book form, you have a much better option than this, and at a cheaper price. "Writing a Novel with Scrivener" by David Hewson delves deeper into the mechanics of Scrivener and gives more complete usage scenarios. I actually LEARNED a few things with David's book. It's also two dollars cheaper. This book, however, isn't worth the time or the financial investment. This should be priced at around two dollars, at most, for the content. Here's an indicator: If you download the sample for this book, it's about a THIRD of the full version you'd pay for. Does that sound like it's worth your eight dollars? Skip this and get "Writing a Novel With Scrivener".
The one previous reviewer of this book felt that it was not worth 8 bucks. But I'm very busy and was looking for a quick way to get up to speed so I could use the application for some writing I wanted to do *now*. The other available book was oriented, it seems, toward writing a novel, and I am only interested in writing technical documents and blog entries. So I was a bit worried it might not cover some part of Scrivener I cared about, or have some other undesired slant. So I took a chance and bought this book. Whether it is "worth" 8 bucks or not... All I can say is I have no regrets about buying it. I sat down with the book and read it straight through, with the app in front of me, and feel I am ready to write! The text is clear and concise. It covered the app at the level I needed to get going.I can't compare and contrast "Take Control of Scrivener 2 " to "Writing a Novel with Scrivener", but I would highly recommend "Take Control of Scrivener 2".
This book doesn't add value - it's neither more compact than the scrivener tutorial nor does it help avoiding the need to read the scrivener manual. Not worth the money.
