Nexus 7: Basics and Beyond

Front Cover
Mocana Productions Inc, Aug 15, 2012 - Google Nexus 7 (Computer) - 106 pages

This isn't one of those daunting computer manuals that you'll read three pages of and then give up on. It's an engaging little book that you'll tear through in an evening, and by the time you finish you'll have a great understanding of all the ways your Nexus 7 can improve your life. Noted author Erik Marcus, who started his career as a technical writer, took on this project because a tablet with the mass appeal of the Nexus 7 deserves a book that's fun to read. Marcus never shies away from telling you what he really thinks, and he'll let you know where your Nexus 7 shines, where it stumbles, and how to wield your tablet like a pro.

I just finished Nexus 7: Basics and Beyond and I found it to be an extremely helpful and informative book. The author does a great job of explaining what's good and useful about the Nexus 7 but also does a great job of explaining what could (and should) be improved. I'm very happy that I made the purchase and have already used the book multiple times for basic reference when I couldn't figure out how to do something. You simply cannot beat the price for a book that does a very good job of explaining Google's latest tablet. If you want a book that really digs into the device, explains everything and is 400 pages long, this isn't the book for you. If you want a book that will get you up and running quickly with the Nexus 7, then this is most definitely the book for you.
