More About the Author

I'm now writing a free e-mail newsletter called The Useful Geek (website above).

I'm updating my iPod book to cover the latest features, the latest iPods... and the iPhone when it arrives

I'm also writing a book called Do-It-Yourself PC Upgrade Projects, which shows you 24 ways to get more out of your computer -- without buying a new computer. (Or not yet...)

Happy reading -- and computing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed for my iPhone 4S January 7, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was desperate for an easy to use manual for my new iPhone 4S. The "Teach Yourself Visually" book was the perfect answer to my iPhone 4S problem. Each topic has a by-the-numnbers explanation with a great corresponding color photo of the iPhone 4S which provides easy to follow guidance on each step. This is definitely a must have book for anyone who is new to the iPhone 4S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than A "Dummies" Guide! February 18, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a "no brainer" guide to the 4S. The color pictures are real clear, the text is pithy & each step is clearly explained. The "Dummies" Guides are too wordy & if is often difficult to find what you want in the text. The pictures here make it easy to avoid frustrations & to actually do what you WANT to do! Bravo for simplicity!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use March 20, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy using this book. I have not read it cover to cover. It is very well formatted to go directly to a topic to learn about the subject, so I have used it to figure out specific issues. It answers the questions, and guides, very well. A friend showed me a few "tricks" with the phone, which I have not yet seen mentioned in the book, so I think it could be better in that regard. But when I was in a local book store and compared this book side by side with other how-to books for the iphone 4s, I found this one to be much clearer to understand easily because of the picture format.

5.0 out of 5 stars iPhone 4sBook October 14, 2012
By Frenchy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After sorting through several books on Amazon regarding the usage of the iPhone4S, I settled on this one. This book is exactly what I needed to learn the ins and outs of using the iPhone 4S. The little phamplet that came with the iPhone was barely helpful and looking online for instructions doesn't work for me. Sitting down with the book on my lap to the information needed with the phone in hand works beautifully. I can sort through issues page by page, or skip to the chapter for the questions needing immediate answers. The book is clear and concise with step by step instructions on "how to" do anything with the phone. While not being a "tech" knowledgeable person, I could work through some of what seemed obvious on my own, putting in phone numbers, contacts, etc., but this book covers all explanations the average person needs answered, and then some. Learning to use text or taking pictures and sending them on was fun to learn from the precise language in the book. Taking the phone to Canada after just purchasing it and learning about the Data roaming was interesting. Explanations on how to Sync apps, using iTunes, browsing the web, sending and receiving emails, iCloud, WiFi, and even digital books, are great. This book is chock full of information for every conceivable problem or question that I encountered as a "beginner" iPhone owner. Being a senior citizen trying out the newest technology can be intimidating, but the book makes it so much easier, I love it. I can sit in my own home at my leisure and just read and learn! Apple invented a great product and this book enhances all of the features in easy to read and understand language with great graphics. It truly complements the iPhone.

5.0 out of 5 stars good product December 10, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very good for someone who is unfamiliar with iPhones, and would be good to update people who are upgrading to the new Iphone 4s with Siri. The seller sent this book promptly, and I saved a good deal by purchasing it though them rather than paying retail locally.
