5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire HD: The Missing Manual 14 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can I say? Bought the Kindle Fire HD this month - clearly a brilliant product but I don't have a clue how to use it! Already signed up to Amazon Cloud and willing to buy loads of ebooks so why, Amazon, do you not provide a manual with my £159 purchase and all the extra payments I am prepared to make to you??? Are trillions of dollars of profit really that much better than billions of dollars of profit when you consider mankind's current global problems??? Ok, got that off my chest! This manual is brilliant. If you buy a Kindle Fire HD, buy this book! You will then be able to use the Kindle Fire HD to its full potential. Amazon Kindle Fire HD Service - pathetic! Kindle Fire HD: The Missing Manual - brilliant, exacly as per its description!

5.0 out of 5 stars A top quality Kindle Fire Hd book 29 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a really top quality book that explains how to use the Kindle Fire HD. Everything is in-depth and explained well. I've bought some cheap 'manuals' that are very short, don't have many pictures and errors. When you want to find something out quickly but It can be a bit daunting, but you can easily find the information. This stands out as probably the best book there is for the Kindle Fire..

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have 24 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for Kindle owners.
Amazon should be ashamed that something like it does not come with the Kindle.
Its bad enough that you have to pay for a charger.
The book covers everything you need to know in simple terms.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Manual for Kindle Fire HD 13 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. There were so many things I was struggling to do by trial and error. Wish I'd bought this book as soon as I had my Kindle - it would have saved me lots of grief!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useable 7 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I came to the Kindle Fire as an experienced computer user, but with limited experience of touchscreens and tablets. I have found this book easy to read and well set out. Each chapter addresses a different area of the Kindle, and I found that you can flip between the book and trying out the instructions given on the Kindle. I find some of the Americanisms a bit annoying, but overall a good buy.
