I had that reaction at first. Then I noticed for "XXX for Dummies" books are good introductions to new subjects.

But I draw the line at "Complete Idiot's Guide to XXX" I won't buy those.

I'm a relatively new user of Calibre, and I love it. (Thank you, Mr. Goyal!) I believe I understood unboggling's points (even the one about children's tennis -- I think some folks just get their panties in a wad too quickly).

I look at using Calibre with its defaults as the KISS approach. I've discovered I vacillate between jackie_w's two groups, so now I'm exploring plugins and other programs to use in conjunction with Calibre to get the books I want the way I want (or at least a way I can live with).
