First, kudos to the author for not saying this is "the ultimate" anything, as some writers of short books do. He says, "This book is not completely comprehensive... consult additional books... not endorsed by any company...."Is the $9.99 price tag worth this membership? I've used it now for 6 months or so, and sometimes I think so, other times I think not. So I'm eager to see what this book says about the "all-you-can-eat Kindle buffet."The advantages are many and can save you time and money. The author points these out. Your risk is reduced: if you download a book not to your liking, return it and get something different with no hassle. But a disadvantage is that most of the ebooks are not by famous authors--they're in the $2.99 or less range. You won't get books from standard publishing houses like HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster. And you can't have more than 10 books borrowed, nor do you get to keep them forever. If you cancel your membership. they disappear from your reader.The author includes some other flat-rate book lending plans that are good to know about. Also, you can access many library collections through the "OverDrive" service, including some bestsellers and favorite authors. He also explains devices you can use, how to download, how to return, and other functions. A wide selection of audiobooks is also available.Kindle Unlimited may not be best for kids, the author points out. The selection of books they're most interested in are slim.You could likely dig up most of the information this book covers through web searches, but this book makes it easy to learn the basics.
Let me start this review by saying that I've been receiving daily e-mails from Steve Weber's Kindle Buffet site for about a year now, and, in my opinion, it's about the best site out there for giving readers like myself tips on free and discounted Kindle books. So, when I saw that Weber had written a book about Kindle Unlimited and that he was offering it for free temporarily, I decided to take a look. Unfortunately, now that I finished the "Kindle Unlimited Users Manual," I think that the author has not quite been aboveboard with his readers, especially those unfamiliar with his Kindle Buffet site.First, the positives. Weber's book seems to contain everything a reader would need to know about Kindle Unlimited, how it works, how to pay for it, an easy way to determine what books are and are not covered, Kindle Unlimited Audiobooks, and so forth. Admittedly, all this information is available on 's site, but Weber does a very good job of putting it in one easy-to-follow location. For anyone thinking about getting Kindle Unlimited, the last half of Weber's manual is well worth the 99 cents he charges for it.However, this information is in the second half of the manual, not the first half as one might think. That particular organizational choice isn't accidental either. Instead, the first half of Weber's manual is a thinly disguised attempt to dissuade readers from investing in Kindle Unlimited by pointing out as many negative things about the service as possible. Weber points out that many books by the more popular best selling authors are not available on Kindle Unlimited and that for many readers who don't read all that much, simply buying books a la carte will be cheaper than KU's monthly subscription fee.
