5.0 out of 5 stars SKYPE FOR DUMMIES REVIEW
I bought this book because I wanted to get in to Skype but didn't have a clue how to. It's very useful, advising on what to do and what to buy, and then it goes in to more detail for advanced useage. Highly recommended for anyone starting out with Skype, but even experienced Skypers will almost certainly learn a thing or two.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skype for Dummies - Once Upon a Time.
This may have been a useful guide to Skype when it was written in 2007, but the software has changed significantly now (2011) and the value of this book has greatly diminished. I found it very difficult to relate the book's content to what I was seeing on the Skype screens - for me this was a waste of money.

Just what I needed...a clear concise and intelligently written approach to utilising Skype. I just canot understand why everyone with a PC is not signed up..strongly recommended.

As I knew very little about Skype before I purchased this book it was pleasing to find that I could understand somethings right from the beginning. The book is very informative but I was a little confused by the way reference was made to chapters further on in the book. Apart from this I found that the information was useful and entetaining. No real problems were ecountered and I certainly know more on the subject than before. Overall I rate this as a good buy.

I object strongly to the style of this book. In the mass of usless information, there is very little really useful help. I object to being patronised!
