May I suggest that someone write a book on Alexa Skills Development?

I find the web content for the skills development to be very sketchy, with widely scattered information, and few (if any) workable examples. There needs to be something much better organized and focused than some cross-linked web pages. Another issue that needs to be addressed are the vague/simplistic, and even misleading, error messages/indications, clearly leaving out the technical details that I know are available. This has the potential to be a very good product, but it needs better support.

The issue with this is that Amazon has a tendency to update and add things all the time without giving anyone warning. If anything, I think Amazon should focus on updating their documentation and releasing working updates.

Yes, the changes would make an book difficult. My challenge with the Amazon documentation was "putting it all together". Each step was well documented but how they interrelate was not. I really stumbled over session{attributes}. Still am, I suppose.
