This review is from: No Kindle Required - The Complete "Kindle for iPhone" User's Guide/Unlock the "Lightning Web Navigator for iPhone & iPod Touch" (DRM-Free with Text-to-Speech Enabled, User-Friendly) (Kindle Edition)
This book has three main topics. If any one of them helps you, it's worth the price.

The author has assembled the best set of web links for e-books I have ever encountered. First, there is a set of links into different parts of the Amazon Kindle store that makes searching and shopping easy. Jumping back and forth between this book and the iPhone's Safari browser sounds clunky, but is easier that doing the same searches using the browser alone. And the links to free e-book web sites--most of which have nothing to do with the Kindle, by the way--are numerous and usefully organized. Both of these sets of links will save you time and money.

The main topic of the book--how to use the iPhone Kindle app--was reasonably well-written, complete, and seemed error-free. It also seemed unnecessary. I read Windwalker's book about a week after downloading the Kindle app. Everything I read I had already figured out either from the app's help file or just by using it. If you are able to purchase, download, and begin reading this book, you don't really need it. Not for this section, anyway.

The book's last section contains generous excerpts from the author's book on the Kindle 2. I don't have one and don't anticipate getting one, so I only skimmed this material. No comments, good or bad.

Overall, I recommend buying this book if you plan to read books on your iPhone--or even if you don't, but want a good set of links to free e-books. It's well worth a buck. And your time.
