Join 30,000 other Kindle owners who have unlocked all the pleasures to Kindle ownership by downloading Stephen Windwalker's premier guide for Kindle owners. This full-length book is over 50,000 words -- the equivalent of 192 "print on paper" pages -- but it is a snap to navigate with a link-enabled table of contents and a detailed, link-enabled FAQ section.
Windwalker's guide was the first full-length book about the Kindle for Kindle users, and it remains the gold standard with all the tips included in the other, shorter, more expensive books that have followed it. If you are trying to make a decision about which Kindle guide is right for you, be sure to try a free sample of this book on your Kindle by clicking on the yellow button above. Once you've checked the table of contents and seen the extensive reach of the information provided by Windwalker as well as its ease of navigation and clear writing style, your decision will be a snap.
Written for serious readers as well as early adopters and "gadget heads", it is now also available in a handy paperback version: the perfect accessory for a Kindle owner who wants to use it alongside his Kindle or the prospective Kindle buyer seeking to complete her due diligence before making a purchase.

Summary: Wouldn't leave home without it
Comment: I received my Kindle as a gift in August and have throroughly enjoyed it but couldn't have as much without the Windwalker guide. I, of course, downloaded it right after getting the Kindle and was so impressed I ordered the hard copy so I would be easier able to reference something as I was reading or surfing. As I indicated, the Kindle and the guide go with me together as a pair.
Summary: Kindle Help
Comment: The Complete User's Guide to the Amazing Amazon Kindle
I found this book to be interesting, helpful and an easy read. I purchased a "Kindle" and was looking for information to make my experience with the Kindle a good one. Steve's book not only met all my needs but he personally went the extra step to direct me to other helpful sites to help me in my own search to self-publish.
If you have purchased a "Kindle" and need a few pointers this is the book for you. And as an extra bonus you'll find some really good bargains inside.
Thank you Steve for a wonderful read.
Summary: A must read for the new Kindle owner
Comment: Mr. Windwalker's enthusiasm for the Kindle shines through in the enthusiasm of his writing as well as in the range of tips, advice, and thoughts he provides on the Kindle.
Obviously, as with any book of this type, Kindle users will have discovered some or many of the ideas presented for themselves. However, even I, a true Kindle lover and gadget geek, mined valuable information that I had not discovered on my own. The tips range from the merely fun (how to find Minesweeper) to the extremely useful (where to find free content, keyboard shortcuts, how to use the Kindle during travel, how to manage photos and audio files).
To me, the most fun and interesting part of the book were the author's speculations on the possible future of the Kindle and how it might be a paradigm-changing device.
Everyone who owns a Kindle should also own this book.
Summary: great book. This book should be your first Kindle purchase.
Comment: This book will help you understand your new Kindle. It is a "How to" book for the Kindle. Do not pass up this book. The Kindle is an amazing piece of technology and this book makes understanding it so easy. I give this book 10 stars.
Comment: This is a complete waste of digital space. Improperly described, it is more of an advertisement for the author's other books. .1 star would have been my choice were it available.
