Great book (in its time) for beginners!,
This review is from: My Google Chromebook (Paperback)
This is a very nicely laid out, colourful, and beginner-friendly book about the Google Chromebook. 5 stars for that!
The only problem (minus 1 star) is that things have moved on since the book was published. So where the book states that the Chrome OS has no PC-like "desktop", it does now. And where the book describes the "four" Chromebook models (correct at the time of publishing), there are now some newer models such as Samsung Chromebook Wifi (Latest Model - Launched Oct 2012) and the Samsung Chromebox Desktop. And where the book suggests that the Chrome file manager doesn't allow you to copy files from one location to another... well, now it does. You get the idea.
This book may still be incredibly useful and very appealing to beginners who want a nice pictorial introduction to the Chromebook concepts and device; and if the author published an updated second edition then it would likely be the best book on the subject. In the meantime, you will find more of the recent Chromebook and Chrome developments (like Google Drive) explained in The Chrome Book (Second Edition).
