When I write about Pinterest, a comment I often get is, “I don’t know what Pinterest is all about.” From now on, I’ll point them to the Pinterest For Dummies book written by Kelby Carr.

If you have read any of the Dummies series books, you know the format. This book is a very easy read and gives wonderful step by step instructions for everything you will need including opening an account, creating boards, pinning, commenting and sharing pins.Kelby includes a lot of photos to help you through each step.

While the book is geared more towards Pinterest newbies, as a long-time Pinterest addict, I learned a many things too. The chapters that I learned the most from are the Self-Promoting on Pinterest and Pinterest Etiquette chapters.
