I have always been a big fan of the Dummies books and this one certainly lives up to the previous ones I have used as far as content is concerned.

However, I would like to address my review to buying it as a Kindle ebook. I was very much in two minds as to whether or not it would be effective on Kindle. I have the original Kindle keyboard and also a 7" Kindle Fire and I was afraid that the screens would be too small to be able to read the book effectively. I have been very pleasantly surprised to find that both the Kindles are OK for reading the book, although the Kindle Fire is much more effective because of the colour. It's really good to be able to see all the photos in at their best.

My real big disappointment with the ebook came when I tried to download the files I had been told I could get from the publisher's website. These are the files which would be on the DVDs you would get if you were not buying an ebook. The file I needed to down load was around 3 gigabytes and on my home (desktop) computer it took me close to two hours and that was after I had had a number of attempts to get it to download. Now, having downloaded the files, I am having more trouble with unzipping them.

I really think the publisher/Amazon should come up with some way that we could have an ebook and also get the DVDs. Surely, if we paid the price for the paper book, but downloaded an ebook, we could be sent the DVDs by post. Not having these has really spoilt was would have been a great book for me.
