Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Call anyone in the U.S. and Canada for $29.95 per year. Phone places like China, Germany, Mexico City, Taipei or London for 2.1 cents per minute. Or talk to other Skype users anywhere, PC-to-PC, for free. That's Skype -- and Skype For Dummies helps you make the most of it.

Did you know you can use Skype to send text messages to cellphones? Or make Skype calls from within Microsoft Outlook? Or use Skype to record your calls? (There's even a great free tool to simplify transcription.)

Do you know how to choose a phone that'll work directly with Skype, whether there's a PC nearby or not? Have you given any thought to how your business could use Skype? Might you want to record your next webinar as a "skypecast" and then distribute it as a podcast?

Whatever you need to know about Skype, it's in here -- even if you just want to know how to get started fast. Bill Camarda, from the January 2007 Read Only
