New Collection of Siri Tips Released

March 16, 2012 - Delray Beach, FL

Dery Books today released Volume 2 of its "Life With Siri" eBook series. The eBook, written by Jodi Dery, is illustrated with over 50 new iPhone screenshots of tips to help people get the most out of Siri. It also contains over 50 screenshots of Siri's funniest answers.

For those who aren't aware of Siri, it is the remarkably perceptive, conversational "personal assistant" on the iPhone 4S.

The eBook is now available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and will soon be available from iTunes and other booksellers. It is priced at $1.99.

While most eBooks are primarily text-based, "Life With Siri" primarily uses screenshots to demonstrate how to most effectively use Siri. Author Jodi Dery states, "Presenting Siri's responses in this illustrative manner -- with maximum use of illustrations and no more text than necessary -- helps people remember the best ways to get the results they want from Siri."

There now are many free apps available to read eBooks on a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android devices. provides links to 12 free eBook apps on its home page. The site also includes links to 6 additional eBooks about Siri from other authors, links to more than 40 articles and 20 videos about Siri, and a link to view a 40-page free sample of its Volume 1.
