I didn't even know how to turn it off. The information that comes with the ipod is very limited. This user's guide was invaluable to really enjoy the device. I wish there had been more information about bluetooth,however.

I LOVE this book. This is the handbook they didn't include with the iPod. If you have any amount of questions about your iPod Touch, this is truly the book to get.

My husband bought an iPod touch Gen 4 used and we needed coaching on how it works. There was no where in the description on this book that it was for Gen 3. It did not cost much but it is unusable.

It's pretty well written. My only objection is that it is pretty much an advertisement for Apple. It made my iPod more usefully.
