This book is quite big and has a lot in it. I don't think I will be interested in most of the things you can do on Google Earth, but obviously this book will be useful in understanding it.

I found the book very informative, although a few colour pics would keep you a bit more interesting, as I soon got bored (thats not altogether the books fault!

This book has some good info, but being as it was published in 2007 I would say Google Earth has been updated a lot and it would be great if there were a newer version written. Still a good book to have if you want some info on Google Earth that Youtube may not offer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good resource of information and links 25 April 2014

I found this worth buying, as it has good explanations and useful links. It helped me in making maps for several projects, used along with The KML Handbook. With even the free version of Google Earth, and/or map-making tools at maps.google.com, one can assemble, test and make available useful, interactive maps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book 11 April 2013
By Sandie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thoroughly love the "Dummie" books because they are in layman terms and not "Techy" terms. The older I get the more I enjoy reading on my level and not that of a Tech. Granted I know a lot about the computer and it's functions, but the new apps are easier for me to understand and follow when it's written for "Dummies".

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty safe with "Dummies" books 29 April 2013
By T. Mains - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have worked with Google Earth for quite some time, but had a few questions that I wanted a reference for. The Dummies books are not the most in-depth tech manuals but they can usually answer some of the simpler questions and direct you where to go to get more specific information. Good book to start with.
