I had just purchased an iPhone4 and this was my first foray into the smartphone world. The little bit of information that came with it is woefully inadequate!! A friend recommended this book and it has been very helpful. It's great for a "newby" like me.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an iPhone. It was easy to understand with good graphics to help. Even if you think you already know all about your phone, there are things this book can teach you. Get it now!

This was a great all around review helping me understand the basics of operating my new iPhone 4s. The author definitely did not leave out any details. I also received the book in two days as a Prime member. Thanks!

Really excellent in depth guide to the iPhone which will be more than adequate for most people and an author who will actually respond by email.

I bought this book because the reviews were so good. But it turned out to be a big disappointment for me. Unless you are a novice with your iPhone, you find that this book does not go into important features in any depths. Here is one example. I wanted to learn about "Accessibility", and found that it was treated very superficially on only one half of a page. Compare this to the treatment by David Pogue in his Missing Manual on iPhone (5th edition, Dec., 2011). He covers this subject in great detail on 10 (yes, ten) pages! I found similar situations on several other topics. iPhone: The Missing Manual If you really want to learn the ins and outs of the iPhone running iOS 5, get Pogue's book instead. You wouldn't be disappointed.
