Yeah, this looks pretty silly. What does he tell us in here that we can't find just by browsing around the internet, Phil? Or is it merely the convenience of having it all in one book?

A lot of people don't like reading forums though. Finding a couple answers can take awhile on active forums if you have to sift through dozens of topics to find them. Or you can just start a new post and hope that people do the legwork for you. I'm a forum person, so this book isn't really for me. But my brother isn't a forum person at all (and neither is my dad) and they both have droids. This book is for them

I think that you are being a bit harsh. Trolling the forums and elsewhere on the internet is a pain in the a$$. The majority of people aren't going to do it. So this is a good thing. I've run across many people that don't know all the things that their phone can do or how to trouble shoot (hense the carrier CS guys throwing task killers on so many people's phones).

Odds are, most of the info on that book are usually available within a website called Google... or at XDA Developer forums, so dunno why you would make a guide if everything is usually online, still might be helpful to some folk, I like how it's on Kindle :D.

I respect the guy for taking the time to compile this book. But given the fluid nature of the phone industry and tech industry as a whole, this information will no doubt be out of date within a few weeks. I feel for the guy, but maybe he'd be better suited with a blog and some good advertisers.
