I bought two books to go with my iPad 3rd generation. This book "My iPad" and "iPad The Missing Manual." Learning how to make home-screen App folders, making videos, editing Bookmarks & folders, troubleshooting, photo editing, iWork tips and notes, everything I need is in these two books. I love my iPad, it is my first one, and I like to read and reread things to fully understand them so I bought hard copies of both books. I am so far over 15 that this technology is worlds beyond what I am used to using. And I don't have time to learn everything. Only what I am interested in knowing and using.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Folks, I need to be honest about something here. I have given people help and advice with tech things for years -- actually since 1985. I am the geek that folks gravitate towards when they have a tech question. There is, actually, a problem with that. I could most likely be a big help for a person with a question about Windows 95. I got my first copy of that in February of 1995, and made 110 phone calls to Microsoft Tech Support. In addition I purchased the thousand page book the Microsoft published about the product.

So mastering this toy, the iPad should be a breeze for me, right? I mean it is just something that kids can use to entertain themselves, isn't it? Go buy one, press the appropriate buttons and get started. Simple. So why on earth would anyone, let alone an "expert:" like me want to bother with a 500 page book about it? For one thing, who's ever going to read a monster book like that anyway?

So, let's consider the fact that there are different ways that people learn from books. Some folks, the ones that I call "theoretical learners" will sit down and read a manual from cover to cover, the way I would read a novel. Once they complete the reading, they will return to the beginning and start applying what they have learned. These are the same folks who make notes in the margins, underline and highlight things, and generally mess up the appearance of the book.

The other group are what I call "practical learners". I'm one of those. When I got my first manual about computer programming, the very first page told what to do to bring up "Hello world" on my screen. I stopped right there and did it. I did not turn the page until it was done. Worked for me.

For $9.99 you get: Anything you ever wanted to learn about your iPad. I was really overwhelmed when I started to go through it. I had no idea what I was missing.

At first I thought it was fairly basic and that I knew most of the stuff since the iPad is very intuitive but as I kept going I realized how little I know. In my case particularly Cloud and how to use Evernote. What I most like is that it has the basic info and then a "Go further" section for those who want to know more about each subject.

There are lots of pictures and illustrations and a "It's not all good section" which points to some areas that can be pitfalls or just confusing. I'll be using this book for a long time and look forward to really utilizing that expensive tablet it took me 2 years to save for.

The only complaint I have is that the book doesn't stay open. It is so difficult to maneuver when you're trying to follow the steps on the iPad. I got this book for review and if I had bought it I may have returned it for that reason. I would probably be willing to pay $15 if the book could stay flat. You can bend it and put something heavy on it to hold it open or bend it quite a bit which may make the book pages from apart. Hence the 1-star deduction, not for content which is great but for the format.

Not all the items will be in the place the books says. I have an iPad 2 Air and where the book says to look in Settings is not where it said but it did point me in the general direction.

This is a pretty good book on the iPad but could be a bit better organized --- I bought iPad for Dummies at the same time and this is a much better book and I would recommend this book over the "Dummies" book.

Most iPad users I know are self-taught. I know I am because the iPad was / is intended to be intuitive and it is. Apple does have beginner’s classes in their stores, but I’m distance-challenged and never got a chance to take them. Online tutorials are great, but a book is even better. I do have Wiley’s iPad for the Older and Wiser, a book that’s fine for the rank beginner, but I need more than that. FYI, I’d heartily recommend the Wiley for the newbie or that older and wiser person.

I do love the fact that there are comprehensive visuals along with the text. If I want to learn about syncing photos, I see a screen shot that has numbered pointers that accompany step-by-step directions. It’s almost as if someone is there pointing and explaining how to work through an issue. How do I sync? How can I access my albums? How do I transfer? Rosenzweig has made it much easier for me to work with my iPads without having to work with the online tutorials.

When not all is good, there’s are great bright red sidebars “It’s Not All Good,” explaining where I might have problems. This too I appreciate. It certainly will save me a lot of headaches when I’m trying to learn new concepts. Obviously no book is a one-size-fits-all book, but rather one that can be tailored to the individual’s needs. I’m going to be using this as a reference, picking and choosing things I want to work with.

If you do like online tutorials, I’ve noticed a small section on how to ask Siri to search for them. When I checked out the very comprehensive index, I’m seeing several other references as to how to search.
