Top Customer Reviews
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
On the other hand, for those who fear the computer, don't like hunting for sometimes elusive information on sites like Google or just prefer a well organized and comprehensive approach to product training, this book is excellent.
The products and services covered are Google Sites, Chrome browser, Google Apps (including Google Docs (Word Processing, Presentations, Spreadsheets, Calendar, Gmail, Contacts, Video Chat and Talk).
That's a lot of territory - and the authors do a fine job of covering it.
Overall, for those who need a book like this, it is excellent. For those with substantial computer use experience, you're just as well off with the Google help pages.
Incidentally, my experience shows the drawback of on-line book buying, If I had seen this in a bookstore, I would have riffed through the pages and known immediately that the book was useless for me.
Book is useless.
