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.

It should have a sub-title of "Everything You Wanted to Know About Your iPad 2, but Were Afraid to Ask." Computer geeks
are notorious for not admitting there is something about a piece of technology that they don't know. This book answers those questions for them.
But it is not only for the geeks. This book did not read like a text book. This book is written in a manor that both geeks and geek-wanna-be's can understand.
The authors write as if they are talking to you. When they use an acronym, they explain it.
I have been using Apple products sine the 1980's and have had both an iPad and iPad 2.
I was anxious to see what I did not know about my iPad 2. Sure, there were a lot of things that I already knew, but I
was very please to read quite a few things I was not aware of. (Being a geek wanna-be, it's not that I didn't know them. I just wasn't aware of them.)
I am very happy that I purchased this book. I read it in one setting and have referred back to it a number of times already.
Now my iPad 2 does what I want it to, when I want it to.
"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.
