This book is generally very helpful to understand basic iPhone functionality - great for first time users. However, there are many new features of the iPhone IOS 4 that are not addressed. If you have the latest version of iPhone, get a book written specifically for it.

this is an ok book. Not really what I was expecting. I was looking for something that had more information about downloading apps than this book had.

I consider this book a good introduction to the iPhone as an "intructions manual". However, I do not consider that this book covers issues "outside the box". Things to consider for future editions should include:

1) Pros and cons of purchasing the iPhone at an Apple Store, ATT Store, or super chain stores. Considering that the price is the same at all of these places, I do not see a reason to purchase it at any other place than the Apple Store, if there is one near by. You cannot beat the support from the knowledgable staff at the Apple Store.

2) Top accessories to consider purchasing. The book makes no mention of screen protectors, carrying cases, necessary connections with the car stereo, etc.

3) There is no mention on how to transfer data from other PDAs (Windows Mobile, Palm OS, Black Berry) into the iPhone.

Hopefully these will be included in future editions.
