    Exhaustive, with many chapters skippable for your average at-home user. Still, picked up a few tricks.

    Even though I am no longer working as a teacher I am running my own book club.

This is not only entertaining and a good read, but it validated a lot of things that I taught myself.The webinar section was extremely interesting, although I'm not sure I'll ever use it unless I use it to help out my community where I live. I recommend this book despite the fact that some words were omitted -like I said I was a teacher and I spot those sorts of things-but those omissions certainly did not ruin the experience. Even if you only use Zoom for baby showers, happy hours, playing games with friends or when someone else is hosting,you'll get a lot out of reading this book.Thank you for writing it!

    I'm a social user of Zoom, like so many, keeping up with friends, family, and organizations I'm involved with during the pandemic. I don't need to do anything fancy, but I did want to learn to navigate my way around Zoom as a guest and an initiator of a small meeting. It was very helpful for that, but the book is so well organized and so clearly presented that it is useful at whatever level you are trying to master. Each topic is addressed at the basic (free) user level, the subscriber level, an I'm a social user of Zoom, like so many, keeping up with friends, family, and organizations I'm involved with during the pandemic. I don't need to do anything fancy, but I did want to learn to navigate my way around Zoom as a guest and an initiator of a small meeting. It was very helpful for that, but the book is so well organized and so clearly presented that it is useful at whatever level you are trying to master. Each topic is addressed at the basic (free) user level, the subscriber level, and the corporate level. You can skip over the parts you don't need or have already mastered. Each level in each section gives you a succinct summary of what you can do, and how to do it. So I was able to quickly find and read what I needed, and skip over the rest. If I ever need to learn more, I can tackle another level. Very useful and helpful

    I'm bout 70% of the way through this audiobook and I'm satisfied that it is a good audiobook with good narration, but not very useful to me. There are many "How to" sections that either refer to options that only apply to premium users or I already know how to do. Nevertheless, I am not blaming the audiobook. I simply think that the audio format does not lend itself well to this subject. I would have been better served reading the hardcopy version.

    I guess I'm too computer-challenged to even be a dummy. I was just looking for tips on how to use Zoom to connect with my family and birding club during this time. Instead the book seemed meant for people using it in a business setting. I guess I'm too computer-challenged to even be a dummy.
