The book I read to research this post was An Essential Guide To Google Drive by Murat Yilmaz which is a very good book which I downloaded for free from kindle. One quibble I do have is this book is rather but is very interesting nonetheless. Google Drive is a cloud computing service where you get 5 GB of free storage and pay for anything above that. It integrates with Google Docs which is similar to Microsoft Office and even lets you save in MS Office compatible files. It also contains a form builder by default and there are various other free apps like a map builder and floor plan designer. There is no save button in Google Docs as it saves every step immediately. In Google Drive itself there is various buttons pertaining to things like new folder etc. Going down the screen are opens for displaying files like recent for recently opened etc. You can save any kind of file in there and there are free apps that let you edit many of files like Pixlr which edits photos. I think Google Docs which is particularly suited for home use provides serious competition to Microsoft Office which charges a small monthly fee and OpenOffice which is also free. I did read somewhere else Google brings out several products every month and are one of the biggest technology firms in the world. Google Search is the most visited website in the world. A lot of their wealth though comes from Adsense & Adwords. I really enjoyed this book & I think it is a must have especially when it's free.

HASH(0x9030380c) out of 5 stars A good helper to introduce you to Google Drive, an online platform offered by Google. 14 Jun. 2013
By Jeff Lippincott - Published on Amazon.com
Nice little ebook. It's only 39 pages long, but it covers the material well. Have you ever thought about exploring Google Drive, or even using it? I hadn't before I saw the title to this publication. Now I think I have a pretty good idea about this Web platform offered by Google.

The ebook is outlined as follows:

1. What are the main features of GD?
2. What files can be stored on GD?
3. Using GD
4. Default content types & new file creation
5. File sharing & collaboration
6. Uploading files
7. Using GD sync software
8. Increasing efficiency with Third Party apps
9. GD apps for Android & iPhone
10 Working offline on GD

Google drive allows you to safely save your files, edit online when needed, and share your files with other people. GD is free for up to 5 GB of files you move to GD, but unlimitted regarding files you create on GD. I recommend this ebook as a great introduction with many screen captures included. 5 stars!

HASH(0x906713f0) out of 5 stars A Concise Manual for Learning Google Drive 6 Jun. 2013
By Steve Pickering - Published on Amazon.com

"An Essential Guide to Google Drive" is a concise manual to guide beginners through the process of learning the basics of creating, storing, navigating, and editing files on Google Drive. This is a manual written primarily for beginning and novice users of Google Drive. The book accomplishes its mission superbly with a well-organized structure that leads readers from the simple installation through using and navigating files. It also covers offline use of Google Drive, sharing, and synchronization with the user's device of choice.

Experienced or advanced users of Google Drive will find that the book was not intended to provide a great amount of detail. It presents the basics in a clear and methodical manner, but does not delve into the intricacies of using the various components of Drive. As stated in the title, this is a book for beginners, not an all-in-one manual that covers every aspect of the service.

For someone who is looking for an introduction to Google Drive with instruction on using its basic features, this book is perfect. An hour or two reading this book, along with simultaneous practice, should provide most people with a good understanding of the service and the ability to use it confidently for basic procedures.

I must commend this author for staying on topic while writing this book. It does exactly what it sets out to do without cluttering itself with useless detail that would not be appropriate or necessary for beginners. The book is, indeed, an excellent resource for beginners to quickly understand and use Google Drive.

P.S. This book had no misspellings or obvious grammatical errors. The author took the time to spell check and proof read the narrative, actions not always taken by other authors when writing Kindle books. Also, the illustrations are sharp and small enough to show up well on a Kindle, another small touch that improves readability greatly in the Kindle format. Kudos to the author for devoting the time to ensure these details were addressed as part of the editing process.

HASH(0x90304388) out of 5 stars more than i expected 7 Jun. 2013
By Sinan Can Imamoglu - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a beginner's guide without any advanced topics to get started with Google Drive. This e-book has provided me with enough content to understand the basics of this system. Besides, the book even includes some advanced topics like offline usage and synchronization. It was a good surprise for me. I think the book deserves a 5-star rating. For the price, I suggest buying.

An ideal balance of brevity and content so you get an idea of how Google Drive works and how to get started with some confidence. About a 40 minute read, if you are not in a hurry, and you are prepared to get started. Just what I was looking for.
