A MUST HAVE FOR ANDROID TABLET USERS
By Rosalie - January 18, 2012
I recently purchased my first android tablet, the Toshiba Thrive. The forum I joined, ThriveForums.org had an advertisement for this book on the site, so I thought I'd check it out. Having seen where another reviewer said you can find the same information that is contained in this book by searching the web, I was a little hesitant to buy it, but Amazon has a feature that allows you to preview some of the sections of the book, so I took advantage of that to see for myself.

As for content the book gets an A+ but unfortunately there is one problem and as it comes from Amazon I had no way to provide feedback to the "seller." These books are evidently printed upon order placement and when they printed mine they didn't have the GLUE MACHINE set right and nobody checked the book e.g. QUALITY CONTROL. The pages were falling out of the book as they were only partially glued to the... read more
