About the Author

Erica Sadun holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. She has written, co-written, and contributed to almost two dozen books about technology, particularly in the areas of programming, digital video, and digital photography. An unrepentant geek, Sadun has never met a gadget she didn't need. Her checkered past includes run-ins with NeXT, Newton, and a vast myriad of both successful and unsuccessful technologies. When not writing, she and her geek husband parent three adorable geeks-in-training, who regard their parents with restrained bemusement. Eight Ways to Get the Most out of Your Zune, the O'Reilly shortcut, and Modding Mac OS X, also from O'Reilly, are her latest books. She also wrote Taking Your iPhone to the Max.

Format: Paperback
I bought the iPad on the first day it was released. Waited in line and snagged a 32 gig wifi model. Even after using it nearly everyday for the past 2 months, I still learned things I never knew about my iPad.

"Taking your iPad to the Max" walks you through every aspect of the device. The authors give clear instructions on how to use each feature, using helpful illustrations showing exactly how to perform the task they're discussing.

The iPad is for both young and old alike. This book explains it in such an easy to understand language, even your grandmother will know how to use an iPad. This really is the missing manual everyone needs.

This is a very handy guide to helping you maximize the use of your iPad. I'm not really a tech junky, but I do like to get as much out of my tech as I can and this guide went a long way to helping me accomplish that. It is written plain and clear to further help your education. I've given it five stars because it's really worth the investment and has come in handy for quick reference questions I continually find myself having about the iPad.

Format: Paperback
Disappointed. This book is VERY basic. If you have any familiarity whatsoever with an iPhone or Pod touch, then this book will be WAY to fundamental. If you are not computer savvy at all, then you might find it somewhat helpful. This book consistently misses the shortcuts and power features that you can find readily online. I don't think any research went into this book. Just level 101 instructions and some screen shots. I gave it two stars since the title suggests something more than a basic introductory book.
