and a very authoritative and educational voice of the dictator series. I would price this book is 9.95 at most. As the print version of this book will end up in the cut out bin of your local big box store in no time. One of my chief complaints is it appears to simply be a retelling by someone who is never used Dragon yet copy then pasted from the already inept and vaugue scattered Nuance documentation often it felt like the author implemented Microsoft Word's search and replace to replace the term "Dragon 13", with "Dragon professional for individuals" thus giving this book the of parents it was thought the really in-house by Nuance. So while it does have some value as far as reference material in one place as opposed to the nuanced method of putting all their information in various pages all over their entire website, in that aspect it is advantageous to buy this book, but if given the choice of knowing what I know now I would not have purchased this book. As a side note, this review was authored on Dragon professional individual and I knew not have a good speaking voice yet I was able to train it to comprehend my "stroked" voice, which is amazing unto itself. So I gave it a 3 as an attempt in the correct direction though a lot of time was spent educating me on how to use it with the chrome browser, Gmail or Facebook which simply does not work correctly like dragons claims it does but this would not be the authors fault. Nuance simply wanted more boxes checked about new abilities of Dragon and that defies reality also a lot of time was spent on mobile devices that have nothing to do with this program but yet filled up space in the book. These mobile apps do not learn your voice, thus are about as useless and frustrating as Google's "okay Google" technology.
it is the only way I learned to use Dragon. Thank you!
this book is ok.... still difficult to do everything and not that simple
