I have gone through a number of books like this one, and most of them are pretty much the same. This is the one you have wanted. Not only are you introduced to apps that you might not have been aware of, but the author has not only checked each one out with an eye to use with the Kindle Fire in particular (important because I have found that not all apps work well with it), but he has read each and every review on them to make sure that the reviews were fact based and not operator error based. Personally, I will check out any book this author writes about any apps because,for some reason, maybe a bad case of OCD, he is obviously compelled to do the most thorough investigation into each and every aspect, good and bad of apps in a particular genre. My hat's off to him, and he has my thanks for saving me a ton of time and grief.
