Google Wave is not available to everyone just yet. It is currently in a limited preview. So I was surprised when I saw a comprehensive guide (book) to Google Wave. I thought the book was just another social media tools or stuff, you know, like the ones social media marketers on Twitter are tricking you to buy. I’m glad I did a quick scan (yup, quicker than a quick skim) over the chapters.
Okay. Two things:
First. The book looks great. Google Wave is a complex web application and has a reputation of being difficult to understand. But the book makes Google Wave easier to understand. It lives up to its title being comprehensive. From setting up your Wave account and creating your first wave to adding interactive content to your waves with gadgets, the book guides you complete with screenshots as visual aid.
Second. The book is free! Its contents are freely available to view online.
Here are some screenshots from the book:
Google Wave is still an incomplete web application and technology. And there’s still a lot to learn about it. The book will be a continuous collaboration as Google Wave evolves. Try out The Complete Guide to Google Wave.
