I was a little frustrated with the Nook when I first bought it. It is quite slow and difficult to use at times. I tried reading the manual that comes with it, but was extremely frustrated with how poorly it is written. The organization was especially atrocious. I found this guide when I searched the internet for an alternate solution. Surprisingly, it is the only one out there. A "Nook Guide" search in Barnes and Noble led me to this little gem.

This guide helped me to make the most of my new eReader. Some tasks, such as special uses for the touch screen and tips for surfing the web really can be made faster. That is exactly what the Nook Survival Guide did. I found myself using the Nook much more efficiently. I especially liked the tips and tricks chapter, since it taught me how to customize my touch screen. Survival Guide is a great buy!

    horrible!

    this was the worst guide ever! I thought it would teach me how to do cool stuff that is kinda hidden and hard to find, but this was ALL stuff I already knew! Don't waste your time, or your 3 bucks. its the worst 3 dollars i have ever spent.

    Very disappointing

    I thought I would learn some useful things that aren't obvious when you are simply using the Nook. One thing I wanted to know was how to easily access lists of free e-books. This was shown to me at Barnes and Noble but the chapter about free e-books was just a list of websites - no how to or shortcuts to use on the Nook.

    Not Recommended.

    This is a simple user guide. The guide included on the nook is actually more useful.
    If you need this book, you need psperbacks.

    Don't Buy

    It is a waste of money. All the things it tells you are in the user manual.
