    Pointless book, dont buy

    Besides the plethora of free online guides, spotify itself is pretty easy to use in of itself. Its layout and fuction is VERY similar to itunes. This book is a scam.

    What?

    I have been using Spotify forever! I haven't even read the book but I know Spotify is super easy to use! Why pay 13 dollars for something that is free!? Instead of buying the book, why not ask others? This book is like a scam!
