What People Are Saying About “My Kindle Fire”February 23, 2012
The Kindle Fire is the black sheep of the Kindle family. Unlike its brethren, the Kindle Fire is much more than an eBook reader. It’s actually a computer in every sense of the word, and as such, it has capabilities that a dedicated eBook reader simply can’t touch. Like any computer, much of the functionality of the Kindle Fire isn’t easily discoverable. That’s where a good user guide can really help, and when I say “good user guide”, I’m not talking about the user’s manual that comes preloaded on your Kindle Fire. I’m talking about a quality guide that shows you how to really discover the true power of the Kindle Fire.
That’s why I wrote My Kindle Fire. I love technology, and I love the Kindle. Writing a guide on the Kindle Fire was a perfect fit for me! Like everyone else, I waited on delivery of my Kindle Fire with great excitement. The day it arrived, I began planning the content of the book. I didn’t write the book before the device arrived (you might be surprised to learn that some authors do that) because I wanted to experience the Kindle Fire exactly as everyone else. I knew that the little things that I found confusing or non-intuitive would be the same little things that my readers would find confusing as well.
We finally released the book about a month ago, and my publisher and I are extremely proud of the product we produced. We purchased all of the competing guides out there so that we’d have a good idea of where we fit, and I was consistently pleased with our extensive coverage of the Kindle Fire and how we presented the content. On every measure, we were far better than the competition. But hey, I realize that as the author of My Kindle Fire, I’m slightly biased in favor of my book. That’s why I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you what others are saying about My Kindle Fire.
Here are some excerpts from reviews that people have written for My Kindle Fire on Amazon’s site.
“Other [Kindle Fire guides] were simply the basics on how to turn it on and what it covered… about the same as the intro doc that comes with it . . . so, I wasn’t too hopeful when I ordered this one… but I am now thrilled with it! THIS is the book I wanted! Written by someone who really understands the processes involved in using your Kindle Fire, it’s clear, extremely easy to follow, and has lots of images, sidebars, etc, to enhance the information. Truly, I couldn’t be happier with it.”
“I will definitely be recommending this book to those who demonstrate a need for a basic understanding of how their devices work. One only has to read the Fire questions posted on the Kindle forum to know there are many owners out there who need this book.”
“I checked out all the books on Amazon that had been written on the Kindle Fire. The color pictures are much better and clearer too, than other books out there that are only black and white. I really feel that after much comparison and [I'm] really glad I bought this one and I hope you will like it too!”
“I think this will be the greatest help I could ever get to help me with my new Kindle Fire.”
“Its great!!! Color [screenshots] make all the difference. Covers ALL those unanswered questions.Very very complete.”
“This book tells you everything! I love that it offers so many graphics and steps to follow.”
“There are so many things you can do with the Fire that are explained in the book I was not aware of until reading [My Kindle Fire] - a must have, highly recommended reference for Fire users at all levels.”
“This book quickly showed me the usefulness of the Fire, so much so I rarely use my laptop anymore. I love the way the book is well indexed so that I can quickly look up any subject. The text is written in a non-technical manner, and the many illustrations make it very easy to understand the subject. Mr Cheshire has made a big contribution to the Fire community.”
“Jim Cheshire’s new book “My Kindle Fire” is a great companion for learning how to use the Kindle Fire. Nicely [laid] out so that anyone can learn and personalize their new Fire. This book is full of great helpful hints.”
There are quite a few Kindle Fire guides to choose from, but they’re not all created equal. Check out My Kindle Fire and see for yourself what many other readers already know; there’s simply no better guide available for your Kindle Fire.
