Okay, I admit I'm reading tech books at the beach. Earlier last month, the good folks at O'Reilly offered me some books for my summer reading list. I requested a second copy so I could do a book giveaway for you all!
Here's the first one.
I'm like many of you accidental techies out there ... I've developed a method of trying to figure things out through a little trial and error, asking other people, or searching the FAQs or online user forums. But that only goes so far. And, if I had to support other people or was teaching a workshop on Google Apps, I'd sure want to have a book for the reference.
The book gives you the basic how-to's for Google's Productivity Suite (docs, spreadsheets, slide shows, gmail, google talk, and calendar). It also covers Igoogle and google apps. It's written in an entertaining way (what else would you expect given that David Pogue started the missing manual series.)
Here's how my blog book giveaways that I've been running over the past few months work:
- Leave a comment to this post about why you want the book
- I'll use random.org to select a random number and then the winner
- You have until July 11th
