I needed this!

This book really helped me to get on top of using Dragon to dictate my book. The software is great, but until you know HOW to set it up, you are wasting a lot of time and effort. Definitely worth the time and money to 'read' this book to get better at Dragon.

I would recommend you listen first, but also get the kindle book so you can get a good visual on where to click and where to find some of the options the author recommends. With Whispersync, it's a cheap addition to this version of the book.
