The book carefully explains the basic functions of the e-reader. You may already know and understand some or all of those basic functions. The book does not explain all features, however. Nor does it claim to. There's a disclaimer that this book is not intended to be a complete user's manual. (I don't know if one even exists.)I wasn't sure whether to buy the paper version of the book or the e-book version. The e-book version was cheaper, but I thought the printed book might be useful, so I bought both. I wondered if it would be awkward to try to learn about the Kindle while reading the Kindle. Would I be off with a paper version by my side that I could refer to while exploring the Kindle?I need not have worried. The printed version didn't arrive until after I had finished reading the e-book version. I had no difficulty following Mr. Weber's instructions when reading the Kindle version, even though sometimes I had to navigate away from his instructions to complete them. On the other hand, the illustrations and pictures in the printed book are much larger and clear than they are on my Paperwhite, so I'm glad I have it, too. Your experience may be different than mine.The way "bookmarks" are handled is different in this version of the software than in my previous version, and I was pleased that Mr. Weber explained bookmarks to my satisfaction.On the other hand, there is a feature that allows you to enlarge graphs, diagrams, pictures, etc. If Mr. Weber discussed this at all, I didn't see it.It strikes me as odd that doesn't seem to have--much less supply with each device--a comprehensive user's manual for what is in my opinion a wonderfully versatile and useful product.
Excellent book for the new Paperwhite owner, especially those first time users of any sort of tablet. All of the Kindle support books by Steve Weber are great. If you like a hard copy for reference you can't beat any of his books.
I received a Kindle Paperwhite as a gift. I did not know how to use it so I purchased this book. It has been a life saver. Taakes the frustration out of learning to negotiate the Kindle. I have even been able to help friends who have older Kindles with the knowledge I have gained from this book. I would recommend that you purchase it.
I have used my user's manual many times since receiving it! It has been my lifeline in learning to use my Paperwhite which is vastly different from the original Kindle I had!
I am throughly confused.The screens in the book don't match up with the screens on my Kindle Paperwhite. e.g. the manual shows a bookmark icon on one line and a g on the line above it. My Kindle screen shows neither.My Kindle Paperwhite was purchased in June 2013 and book publication date is March 2014.I called Kindle support and was told I did have the latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite but a newer HG version was going to be issued this month.Agent was not sure why the book screens and my screens did not match up. Considered: This book referred to the new 3G version coming out this month. This book referes to an older version of the Paperwhile.She could offer no suggestions on a manual that matched the screens that I see on my Kindle Paperwhite
Although I have used a Kindle for years, I picked this up to see what was new in the paperwhite.Easy read and picked up a few tips making it worth the time spent
The manual was exactly what I needed. For me It is easier to read the hard copy manual than look for the info on the web..I now can easily look up answers to any question I have regarding the Kindle Paperwhite.
I bought these for a friend of mine who is 94. The print is big enough for her & the instructions are very simple. It is great for anyone but especially for a generation that was not brought up with computers & other electronics.
