This book was more weighted to Sites than to Chrome. I was looking for in depth Chrome information rather than Sites.

HASH(0xa2ac1bf4) out of 5 stars Good, all-around instruction manual for several Google products and services May 12 2009
By Jerry Saperstein - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book should be evaluated on two levels. First, the majority of computer literate users will not need it. All the information presented here is either easily intuited or available in Google's somewhat convoluted help system. In other words, nothing covered here is rocket science.

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.

On the whole, the book is a well designed, well written overview, rather than a detailed instruction manual. It is sort of a middling reference manual. But it has to be remembered that none of the Google apps and services are very complex in terms of user interface.

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.

HASH(0xa2a59774) out of 5 stars you won't learn much Nov. 10 2011
By Robert Johnson - Published on
About 1/3 of the book is about Sites and 2/3 is about Chrome. Since I hoped to get some guidance about working with Sites, I was disappointed that the little information here about Sites adds almost nothing to what you can access on Google's help page for Sites. Since that Help is inadequate (the reason that I wanted a book about Sites), the book is inadequate as well. Anyone ready to use Sites to construct a web page certainly knows how to use a browser, so there seems little point to putting them together. I think that every penny I paid for this book was wasted.

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.

HASH(0xa50cc240) out of 5 stars Google Sites & Chrome for Dummies Too Much for Me May 14 2013
By Howard M. Raymond - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book probably works for someone more learned in the Computer Jargon than I am. It's very thorough and well written, but I need someone to look over my shoulder and verbally help me figure out how to use Google Chrome to its fullest. Fine book for those who can use it.

The explanations and the diagram examples do not in any way relate to the existing google chrome sys as it exists.

Book is useless.

I used this book to help me with a class I was taking on Google Apps and developing a website. The book was more helpful than some other recommended books.
