If you were knew to the thought of going iPad only, this book might be helpful. If you're already mobile and familiar with Michael's work, it won't be so much.
The authors are very repetitive when talking about "touching email" and the onscreen keyboard. They could have benefitted from tighter editing.
Each subject presented gives an overview, then both authors give their individual take on it. This leads to more repetition in many cases.
The biggest question I had about going "iPad only" was not answered. I recently wanted to download a .zip file. I was not able to on my iPad Mini, so I had to use my Mac. I left a comment on Michael's blog with a question about whether or not he had a work around. As far as I know, he has not replied.
I did get 2 app suggestions from the book, so it wasn't a waste.
This book is also somewhat dated. Since its release in 2013, Microsoft has developed several apps for the iPad, so Office 365 users can use Word, Excel, Power Point, and Outlook on the iPad, as well as OneDrive. They are correct that Dropbox still gets the most app support, therefor it is the most useable.
This book has companion videos available on YouTube.
I don't think the book delivers $9.99 worth of value. It'll be useful if you've never thought to use an iPad as a primary computer before though, which is the target audience.
The rest of the book continues a bit like the sample, on why they wrote this book and how they work. It's a good book for all that don't know the apple ecosystem and want to know where to search for more, for all that are already geeks then you don't need this book.
I'm also a bit disappointed that the biggest part of this book is publicity to Nozbe, don't get me wrong, I like Nozbe and I have use it, but its too much.
Out of this I take 4 apps that I will check out and the need to try touch typing on my iPad. Haven't got any idea on how to move my work office to my iPad.
The biggest disappointment of the book is that it's augmented with YouTube videos to expand on key points. In itself, that's not necessarily bad. However, I read the book in Kindle format using the Kindle app on an iPad. The videos were not accessible from the Kindle app on an iPad. That's a shame since they try to make the point that using an iPad can accomplish much of what we've used other, less convenient devices for in the past, but I can't completely enjoy their Kindle book on an iPad.
Though not adequate for everyone it gives very useful tips and description of some must-have apps.
I will be doing more on my tabled (Android by the way, not iPad) from now on.
Try Michael's Productivity app called "Nozbe" also.
Recommended for everyone who wants to change their computing habits for the better.
