The narrator was very clear and kept my interest.

This audible book is by John Slavio and narrated by John Lewis. He explains what "if statements" are all about.
(spoiler- it's the way a computer decides what to do, how sound bites work in the text box, where Alexa can be found: such as in the Echo, Echo dot, tap, and Fire TV.)
The narrator tells you how you can play music and how well you will be able to hear your music throughout the house. The echo has seven microphones and weighs just two pounds
He tells you how to sign in to your echo and how to change your wake word.
He reads to you the information on what IFTT is, gives you instructions on applications to perform an action.
Best of all he gives you information on security for your home, through smart light switches and plugs. It can save you energy, by turning on and off your appliances, it can dim your lights, to cut down on your electric bill, help prevent against power surges, and control your thermostat.
He tells you about battery solutions, how they work on the echo or the echo dot.
He gives you a list of troubleshooting common problems with Alexa gives you a guide to the Alexa territory.

There are many jobs that Alexa can do, even though he goes down the list, it would be more helpful to the individual to also get the book so you can revert back to it to refresh your memory.

The narrator was very clear and sounds like he has first-hand experience with the subject matter.

Was expecting more advanced information

I was expecting this book to be geared more towards advanced users of the Echo, but it's really kind of basic. Most of the info you can figure out yourself with a little bit of knowledge and trial and error. I guess it's good so you DON'T have to do that trial and error, but it really doesn't give that much new information.

Good Audio

I like the rundown of abilities gave in the book. In the wake of increasing better mastery with resound, these aptitudes should prove to be useful. Additionally, giving a rundown of perfect gadgets which was a decent touch. In conclusion, I loved the specialized clarification of how the reverberate really speaks with gadgets. This should help while investigating. On the drawback, I expected more data about the item utilize.
