Subject Matter Rating: 5/5

Cloud based computing applications and services are quickly gaining in popularity for their ease of use and accessibility in an ever increasing mobile world.  This book describes one of the most useful free cloud based services available.

Author’s Knowledge Rating: 5/5

The author has extensive knowledge in the use of Evernote, as evidenced by the details and instructions included within this book.

Formatting Rating: 3.5/5

Overall this book was fairly well formatted, and organized in a logical and easy to follow order.  The inclusion of pictures and other visual aids really help to reinforce the information being explained.

I found this book difficult to read at first due to a small font size, and had to increase the font size in order to read it clearly on the Kindle.  Additionally there were a few, though not many, spelling and grammar errors.  Lastly, the sub headings were very hard to read due to the color choice, causing them to blend in with the background on the Kindle.

Value Rating: 5/5

With a current Amazon list price of $2.99, this is a good value for anyone interested in learning how to leverage the power of Evernote.

Overall Rating: 4.6/5
