Covers all the bases of the Kindle Fire! I bought a Kindle Fire on its launch day. While I’ve come to enjoy the device, I read Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual by Peter Myers to see if there if there was anything I missed in my tinkering with the Fire. Well, I am pleased to report that the book provides a friendly yet in-depth coverage of the Kindle Fire’s features. Even if you are a longtime Kindle Fire user, you will find something in this book.Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual takes the reader from unpacking and setting up Amazon’s hot new eReader to using it as a traditional eReader, perusing the Newsstand even consuming video and music on the device.

Fantastic Book This book gave me the courage to explore my new Kindle Fire. It is written for the average person in the average person language. Everything is clear and well thought out.

This book unlocked everything. I’d give it 10 more stars if that were possible.

Since I’ve been using my Fire steadily ever since it was available, I didn’t find many things in the book that I didn’t know, but it was still worth buying, to have as a reference available for when questions come up. For example, the section on the Fire’s e-mail app is particularly well-done and useful. Throughout the book, the illustrations look great, especially in color, and the contents are organized in a clean, effective way.Amazon offers a free User’s Guide to the Fire, but it has only 458 locations. This tome checks in at 5,420 locations. If you’re not sure what a location is, Peter has a nice explanation of it, in which I learned that each location…
