This book is a good reference for Kindle readers. I found the book very helpful as I happen to be one of the dummies it was written to help. It spelled out the steps to get the E-reader operating Quickly. The authors are obviously very familiar with the subject matter to the the extent some of the language used was a bit too technical for me, who is ignorant of such matters, but not to the extent of interfering with its usefulness.

This book is recommended to all Kindle Touch users

Jim's feedback Aug. 8 2012

As good a product as the Kindle Touch is, user instruction about using the product, accessible on the Kindle, is woefully inadequate. In that regard, Kindle Touch for Dummies is thorough, without a waste of words, guides you through the Kindle Touch in a organized approach and fills in the gaps Amazon should have made available with the product. I recommend this product for new users unfamiliar with the Kindle Touch. It will likely enable you to enjoy the product at a higher level and extend you ability in using it.

Well Written and Informative Sept. 2 2012
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Published on
Format: Paperback
Kindle touch is the most advanced of Amazon's family of e-readers. It has combined the touch screen technology with the e-ink technology and created a very intuitive and simple reading experience. Even though by now touch-screen devices have become ubiquitous, there are certain particulars about how Kindle handles the touch gestures, and those are important to know in order to become completely proficient at using Kindle Touch. "Kindle Touch for Dummies" helps you learn all these gestures, and teaches you almost everything else that you may need to know about this device. It starts by helping you choose which one of the several options may be the right one for you when deciding which Kindle Touch to purchase. Some of these options (like the ad-supported Kindle) can later be changed, but the choice between the 3G and WiFi only versions is hardwired.

The book is very well written and as far as I can tell it covers almost everything that you may want to do with your Kindle. All of the explanations are very detailed, and will take you step-by-step through the tasks that you may want to do. The book also contains a lot of links and suggestions for further reading, which are all very useful.

If you are either completely new to Kindle Touch, or are an experienced user who would like to learn more about all the wonderful things that Kindle lets you achieve, this book will definitely have enough information to satisfy your needs. It is also extremely competitively priced, and for this amount of money you will probably not get a better comprehensive resource on Kindle Touch.
