    I bought this book because I had given my wife a Samsung Chromebook for her birthday. I knew that Samsung only provided a "get started booklet" with the Chromebook. I thought I needed a backup for any questions she had because I had no experience of using one.

    It has already proved useful for setting up options on the display. Also how to handle bookmarks (favourites with windows). There are plenty of details on using Google Aps which we have not had time to try out yet.

    It is an attractively laid out book and ideal for a first-time owner of a Chromebook and for someone that has not used the Chrome web browser before.

    Having just taken the plunge and bought my first Chromebook, the Samsung Chromebook Wifi (Latest Model - Launched Oct 2012), I needed a manual and overall guide to the world of Google Chrome and Chromebooks. This book pretty fits the bill. I found this book so useful that I went on to purchase the KIndle ( My Google Chromebook (My...) ) version also so I could have it on my Kindle Kindle Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, 6" E Ink Displayand Google Nexus 7 Tablet PC (Android 4.1 Jellybean) - 16 GB.

    The book is very well laid out, with info boxes, illustrations and photographs and white space used throughout. It is very easy to navigate and to find specific information you need. It assumes no prior knowledge and takes the new Chromebook owner through every stage from opening the product through initial setup and on to more advanced usages of the Chromebook. Indeed, for that reason a more experienced Chromebook owner may get less from this book than the novice user.

    This is very much the manual missing from the Chromebook box and although it does not specifically cover the latest 2012 models the setup and Chrome OS is still basically the same. The heart of the Chrome OS is of course the Chrome browser and much of the book is devoted to explaining how to get the best from it which Chrome browser users on other platforms may already be familiar with.

    Format: Paperback
    This is a very nicely laid out, colourful, and beginner-friendly book about the Google Chromebook. 5 stars for that!

    The only problem (minus 1 star) is that things have moved on since the book was published. So where the book states that the Chrome OS has no PC-like "desktop", it does now. And where the book describes the "four" Chromebook models (correct at the time of publishing), there are now some newer models such as Samsung Chromebook Wifi (Latest Model - Launched Oct 2012) and the Samsung Chromebox Desktop. And where the book suggests that the Chrome file manager doesn't allow you to copy files from one location to another... well, now it does. You get the idea.

    This book may still be incredibly useful and very appealing to beginners who want a nice pictorial introduction to the Chromebook concepts and device; and if the author published an updated second edition then it would likely be the best book on the subject. In the meantime, you will find more of the recent Chromebook and Chrome developments (like Google Drive) explained in The Chrome Book (Second Edition).

    Got my Chromebook recently and was a bit unsure how to use it, as it is not like a PC. This book was a great help, and now I'm using Chromebook with a lot more confidence. I recommend this book as I found it a great help.

    It seems easy to set up and use, and with no problems!
    Also no irritating Windows updates to do either!
