    This is arguably the very worse purchase I've made on Amazon in 9 years of being a prime member and having over 500+ purchases. There is no index, probably because there is no useful information to index. I takes 21 pages of nothingness to get to "It's a black cylinder small enough to fit into any corner of your house...". I'm not a speed reader, but it took only twelve minutes to read this from cover to cover because many of the "chapters" contain such obvious and trivial information, despite it technically being 132 pages of large font size 14 print that even your half blind grandmother can probably read. Anyone ordering an actual Echo already knows 95% of what is presented in this "book" merely from looking at the Echo item page on Amazon. It claims to be a 2016 updated version, but it falsely claims it is packaged with the remote (which costs extra and is currently out of stock as of the date of this review), has no mention of controlling home automation, it mentions the "echo pen" that records 800 hours of audio, but there is no connectivity between the "echo pen" and the echo - see for yourself by searching amazon for "echo pen" - the item page for the "Echo Pen" doesn't itself even mention the Amazon Echo which the pen would surely tout highly if there was some type of connection between the two. There is not a single picture other than the cover. It does have 7 pages of cutsie kitchy sayings you can say to or ask Alexa to get some type of novel or trivially cutsie response, which for me is not at all why I've paid $180 for my Echo, and anyone who's tried Siri for more than two minutes has probably become bored of. If I could rate this "guide" zero stars, I would. I naively thought this updated "2016" edition would be different from the poorly reviewed original edition, and not that I have the earlier one for comparison - but it appears there is nothing actually updated and has numerous references to the early 2015 Echo, like how prime members can get it for a huge discount but they have to be invited. Hello May 2015!!! I absolutely regret buying this users guide and am marveled on how such a useless book has probably made its "author" a million dollars. Buyer beware!! I'm actually contemplating writing a detailed, photographed, indexed book that is still easy to read just to make the point that this book is garbage. It really, honestly, is the very worst purchase I've ever made on Amazon.

    It's revealing that the 5-star reviews all sound like this book -- simpleminded, insincerely upbeat, way more enthusiastic than is justified, and just plain cringeworthy. The book is written with a tone you'd expect from a octagenarian who's still overwhelmed by the magic of, say, telephony or automobiles or indoor plumbing, but who's had a tad too much caffeine. The relentlessly happyfaced language is condescending to the point of being offensive. and there's enough of it on every page to make you cringe. To call this "promotional" material, as some here have, is an insult to promotional material.About content: I held my nose & read more than halfway through before coming to *one* piece of information I didn't already know -- that you can apparently change the Echo's wake word to a third option (Simon), although that doesn't seem enabled on ours, so maybe it's coming or a regional thing. Nothing else in the entire book qualifies as instructions for the "mastery" implied in the title, and I'm frankly appalled at that misrepresentation.

    Um... BEYOND happy. Couldn't buy another one of these for my DAD, so I just drove out to South Compton to get one. Yikes! Came back with only part of my grill still on! What??? Anyway, this is quite the little robot. I tell her to set timers for me so I don't lose my Ebay auctions. I ask her to wikipedia historical events. I tell her, "Alexa, put toothpaste on my shopping list" "Play some disco funk" "Turn it UP!" "Play 95.5 KLOS (Heidi and Frank local talk show)" and she DOES it! I take a cat nap and I tell her "Alexa, wake me up in 45 minutes". She does it! I'm so happy with it. I try to set alarms on my phone when I am tired and I don't wake up till the next day!I can buy a special coffee pot of light bulb and she can operate them too. My home automation is fairly sophisticated already so I don't think I will need her for any of that but she is going to learn a lot. Sky is the limit on what they can do with this little personal assistant. It's not even available yet really. I feel lucky to have her and I hope she will soon be a great TV guide who can record my shows. Doubtful but maybe if everybody can play nice together.

    Length: 124 pages.This nonfiction book about Amazon's newest device is well-written and well edited.The only editing snafu I found was at 43 percent through the book, where it is written to go, instead of go to. In other words, the two words are flip-flopped, which is a not uncommon error when a writer is thinking faster than they type. At any rate, his small error is not sufficient to weaken the value of the book.What is confusing however, is the discussion regarding having Alexa read your audiobooks. I own approximately 900 Audible programs. Most are full length books, but many are old time radio plays, and a few are some contemporary productions by Colonial Radio Theatre On the Air. My confusion is, why would I have Alexa read these productions when I've already paid a good some for the professional narrators and voice actors?At first, I was intrigued that Alexa would read my books, but, if Alexa won't read my Kindle books, this feature is unimportant to me. Further, if the speaker won't simply serve as a speaker via Bluetooth to play my books in the voices I paid for, then Alexa is a minus, in my case.Of course, had I not read this book, I might have purchased an Alexa only to be disappointed, so I am quite pleased to have read this through my kindle Unlimited account.McKinnon writes in a smooth, business English manner. He had many natural opportunities to slip in a joke or a goofy statement, but elected not to play cute. I greatly respect that.I was able to read this book in one setting, which says much for a 124 page book.
