What readers are saying Thousand of people have turned to Google Drive & Docs In 30 Minutes since the first edition was released. Here are some real reviews: Bob: ”This little booklet should get a novice off and running using Google Drive and Docs. Even a pro will pick up a trick or two.” Anonymous: ”My son gave me a Chromebook to replace my Netbook. He helped me prepare a slide presentation at work and transfer it to Slides. I understand it more now.” D. Alan: ”[The author’s] claims to get readers up-to-speed with new technical jargon holds true. Many of the tips now seem intuitive, but I needed a launchpad from which to spring, and his book met my demands.” Michael: ”I'm glad there is an entire chapter on collaboration, including setting it up, how it works, and what it looks like in operation. … Collaboration is truly a killer app and Google has made it easily accessible.” Darlene: ”Excellent introduction to Google Drive. Well researched, easy to read, nicely organized.” Diane: ”I gave a Google Drive workshop and knew that many of the participants would want step-by-step instructions for things that I was only quickly able to show them in the workshop. This little book fit the bill perfectly.” Note: Google Drive & Docs In 30 Minutes is not affiliated with “For Dummies” books, Google Drive, or other Google and Microsoft services referenced in the guide.
