Reviewed in the United States on May 28, 2019
This book was a good introduction to the use of Echo products, but I would have preferred greater detail on Skills and Routines.
This is an informative user guide for anyone that uses and Amazon Alexa or Echo Dot. I’ve been using Alex for over a year now and am still learning what she can do beyond the basics. This user guide goes over the basic commands as well as many other tips and tricks including color codes, syncing multiple Amazon accounts, FreeTime for Kids, and being able to play Skyrim. I also thought the Easter eggs were fun to try with my device. J. Wesley Price did an okay job with this narration. He spoke in an informative and textbook like voice which was appropriate for this type of book. *I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I found this very informative!I didn't think I would.My dot picked up on everything said in the guide and taught me a few things about ambient sleeping sounds.I'll be using that! I finally unplugged the dot so I could finish the audiobook. narration by J.Wesley Price was dry,not horrible,but could have been better. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
This book was narrated by J. Weasley Price. J. Weasley Price's voice was perfect for this book. His voice helped me listen and continue listening. The book is very informative and very up to date. As a Alexa owner I am always interested in learning more that she can do. I can't wait to try out some of these great hints. This book would also be a great resource for someone who might be on the fence about whether Alexa is right for them.
5.0 out of 5 starsLots of information about Alexa.

I bought the book before owning an echo dot. Reading it gave me an insight and some confidence in how to install and use my dot. As a not very tech minded person I would say this book has some useful information.
My Alexa won't be here for a couple of days, but I found the information very useful, to be forearmed, so to text! Am amazed what can be achieved if one wants to get all the gadgets! Good book, well done.
