Tom and Jenna Edwards are Amazon's pet technical writers and for good reason. This user guide begins with admitting that none of this is new or even elusive information, only that it has been culled from websites and product inserts far and wide and presented here in this simple, singular place. I appreciate a healthy dose of honesty in a technical manual.

As an Alexa owner (or does she own me now?) I can attest to some of the quirks she has and how frustrating they can be. It only seems reasona

This book is a good manual for the Echo. it answered a lot of questions about interfacing with other devices and setting up the things that I want to do. I will keep this book available for reference.

Did the job

This quickly read book did the job it advertised. I especially liked the hyperlinks. I didn't go into the IFTTT processes, however I expect to do that within the next few days.

It helps me understand my device and tees you new things to try. Some of the stuff you would never think of
some instruction is better then no instruction but I was hoping for more. the echo is simple to use but Alexa can be very picky about phrasing. That's what we really need is a primer on ways to form questions so that Alexa gives you the answer you are looking for. Some of the information on how to get your flash briefing isn't quite correct. When you ask for skip, it leaves the service instead of skipping to the next story. ...more

A Quick Read

As a long time Echo user this book told me little I didn't already know. It did however remind me of a few things that I had I forgotten about. It explains a few things more clearly than the original tutorials. A good example is the use of the IFTTT app. I never could figure that one out. Until now.
Thank you Tom and Jenna for another simple insight to a complicated world.

Good basic book

This book tells you the basics of operating the Amazon Echo, and gives you a good running start. I liked that it went through most of the most common functions. I wish that some of them were explained in more detail. Also, the software will be changing so rapidly that I will be starting a newer and more complex book next. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to take advantage of as many of the functions as is possible.

I found helpful information here and some I couldn't imagine to know I would ever understand. IFTTT, I don't understand it at all, this guide is the first time seeing it. I hope I get to the point where I'm asking Alexa more than the weather and adding things to my shopping list! I would be wearing out the pages if this were a physical book!
Thank you authors for this guide.

The book gives you the basics about using Echo before you purchase it to let you know what to expect.

Simple and easy to understand. Direct and to the point. Filled with a lot of tips and extras. Up to date.

Seems dated already

The instructions for adding a household member don't match what's on my app, and being a connected household member doesn't seem to offer any benefit. It is taking me some time to master my Echo, and this guide doesn't seem to help much.

Nothing great but helpful book !!

Book imparts knowledge which already is present on Amazon's site. Nothing special. No new tricks or tips. Not a must read.

OK for the basics!

The book has all the necessary information to get you started. Plus it has a section on IFTT plus links to Amazon.
