For someone that knows nothing about Tablets and has just bought the latest Nexus 7, this book was very helpful. It tells you everything you need to know on how to use the Nexus 7. I'm very glad I downloaded it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, well written and easy to follow 29 Sep 2013
By C. J. Barlow - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are quite a few guides on offer at amazon so it was pot luck that I chose this one. Well written in an easy going style, almost like the author is looking over your shoulder. Ample screen dumps and full of useful tips. The security aspects were particularly useful as I didn't really have much insight into what settings I needed to consider, never mind how to actually set them. Well recommended for all Nexus owners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Intro 31 Dec 2013
By BobH-OKC - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Nexus 7 was my first foray into the Android world, and Paul's book was my wonderful guide. I've been in the IT world myself, for quite some time, and value well written publications that can get me up to speed quickly --- this book is, I believe, great for the newbie or the experienced individual looking to add a few things to his bag of tricks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book to Get You Started 22 Oct 2013
By KG - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very helpful. The Nexus 7 is my first experience with an Android device and I really needed some help in going through the set-up stage. Paul Walmsley provides detailed instructions in an easy-to-understand style. I was very glad I had this reference book to rely on. First I borrowed this book from Amazon. Then after reading and applying his advice, I purchased the Kindle version and find myself going back to it from time to time.
