New Axure Book on Amazon - Reviewers Needed

Hi all,

I have recently co-authored a new book on using Axure RP ("A Beginner's Guide to Axure 6.5"), and would like to hear from BAs/UXers/Interaction Designers who would be interested in writing an independent Amazon store review for the book, in exchange for a complimentary kindle copy. Please contact me at [email protected].

Amazon link:

Blurb: “A Beginner’s Guide to Axure 6.5” is written for anyone involved in software design who needs to learn how to use Axure RP 6.5 in a minimal amount of time.  Axure is a leading prototyping tool used to create rapid "drag and drop" designs for web, desktop and mobile applications, without the need for code.

No previous knowledge of the tool is required to use this book, and the two expert-level authors take you right from the basics and cut through to the essential skills you really need to create rich interactive designs. Many examples and practical real-world tips are included to help improve the quality of your designs and make your prototyping more efficient.

Concepts and techniques covered include: Getting started, the Axure interface, file management, the main menu, managing panels, the sitemap, page notes, the canvas, guidelines, widgets, annotations, designing using only images, modifying widgets (widget-by-widget formatting, global formatting and widget libraries), page formatting, masters, how to create consistent designs, simple widget interactions, simple page interactions, dynamic panels, simple and complex interactions, shortcuts, generating prototypes, generating page images, creating flowcharts, generating specification documents, providing prototypes to clients, and designing mobile applications.
