5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life. March 1 2011
By James Tryand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a fantastic book. I don't know how I managed from day to day without it. For instance I was getting worried that zombies would take over my farm. I was relieved that this book explained to me that that was a different game altogether and that they are completely separate, and the zombies from the game I had not signed up for wouldn't rise.
I have found a number of tactics and techniques in this book that I am now able to use in real life.
This book has been a real lifesaver. I don't know what I would have done without it. I no longer have to cry myself to sleep at night, now that I have it for comfort.
It was able to provide enough instruction to be able to not only repair my car ( using the section on tractor maintenance ) but is able to advise me on other things such as choosing good combinations for my crops and self-defence techniques using only farming implements.
Without this book my life, and farm was incomplete.

5.0 out of 5 stars My eyes are now open to the FarmVille all around us. April 26 2012
By Adam Lynch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book changed my life. While masquerading as a simple Flash-based game centered around a farm, FarmVille is really an in-depth critique of the capitalist way of life. It entices you to promote your own senseless works above those of others, and pester your Facebook friends into accepting your "requests" as a profit-generating side-quest. It taught me that greed and mindless drudgery are the way to get ahead in today's world.

Viewed through another lens, FarmVille for Dummies is a indispensable guide to the indoctrination of thinking individuals into mindless servitude of the all-knowing Zynga Corporation.

Oh, and cows.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! March 31 2011
By CODYMART - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book taught me everything I need to know about farmville! From using my mouse to plant and plow crops to opening and closing the facebook application. I took away 1 star though because it has not told me now to convert my farmville cash to real money. For 10 dollars I was expecting this book to tell me this sort of information.
