Using nook is a unique resource that goes beyond the manual and includes comprehensive information on locating third-party books and other specialty topics. It provides tutorials for doing basic tasks and is comprised of valuable tips on how to get the most from the device rather than focusing purely on basic usability. The author, Jim Cheshire, has been entrenched in nook research and use since he first heard about the new device. He has delved into every aspect of it, hacked it, tweaked it, etc. Even before getting his hands on one, he researched it and listened to the experts discuss its use. He is an early adopter and firm believer in the product and doesn’t hesitate to make the claim that it is here to stay. Jim is a published Que author, an avid reader, and a self-proclaimed nook expert.
