------------------------------------------------------------------------------



FYI, this guide was authored by an Alexa Skills developer who is French, so English isn't his native language and it shows. However, that in no way diminishes the actual content and if you can overlook the urge to rework his sentence structure (mostly the order in which he places the subject, object, & verb since he uses the French style), this is a handy manual to keep around if you have an Echo/Dot/Tap and use Alexa.....or if you're interested in one but don't know how to use it or what it could do for you.

There's no expiration date on this promo but the wording in the email from Amazon was geared towards the holidays as a gift to Alexa Users, so I'm guessing it will be gone by Dec. 26th or at least by the end of the year.

Lastly, for those who are unfamiliar with Kindle: you do NOT need a Kindle device. The Kindle format works on all smartphones and tablets, as well as many computers, through the Kindle App, available on the App Store for your device as well as on Amazon - always free. See Amazon >> The Kindle Store for details or use this link to determine the type of Kindle App/format you need: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/fd/kcp

Some reviewers c/o it not being easy enough to read since a French guy wrote it.

That's what I was thinking! Someone actually wrote a "book" on this and tries to charge money for it?!

It seems like it should be good enough to have as an organized guide on hand since it's free. It's probably a bunch of info from all over the web like most of these types of books so maybe it'll save some time digging around on the internet. tu

You're welcome everyone! I know it's not a 5 star Manual, but hey, it's free, a handy resource, and the author is the creator/developer of some decent Alexa Skills.

Cheers!

So, a free enhanced user manual? Guess it might be cool if you have an Alexa-enabled device, but I'm surprised anyone can charge for this in the first place. All these tips can probably be searched online for free already.

Thanks for sharing, TopDownRide. TU, and rep'd. Loaded to my Kindle Fire HD since I just recently bought an Echo, in one of the BF deals, and we're still learning how to use Alexa to "her" fullest.

Thanks for sharing. Rep'd. Loaded this to my Kindle Fire HD, through Kindle Unlimited trial, to go with OP's book. Should learn something between the two.
