When you buy an IPhone, Apple doesn’t give you a hefty manual. When I bought the gadget, I had to hunt and peck my way to learn how to use it. This book showed me EVERYTHING about the phone – step by step in a cookbook fashion. The book is very current to IOS 7. So, all the new features of the latest operating system are at your fingertips. The book It also is laid out very nicely, making it and easy to follow. The first 30 pages or so just tell you what you are physically holding in your hand. Okay, maybe in too much detail sometimes – like how they make the “gorilla glass” at Corning Glass Works (entertaining for trivia types). The index is generous with lots of references.
The book is extremely easy to read - I didn’t feel some techie was talking down to me at all. The book covered everything about the phone and then some. I have had my IPhone for over a year I found lots of features in the book I never even imagined were on the phone. I feel I am living in a sci-fi fantasy world sometimes when I use it. One of these days maybe Apple will figure out how to beam me up with an IPhone.
The best feature the phone has for me, and the book made it super easy to set up, was “face time.” You can call that special someone that who also has an IPhone and actually look at his or her face (or whatever the phone is pointing at) while having a conversation. Now, if Apple can just figure out how to let us smell the apple pie in the oven at a friend’s house while talking to the friend, we will really be spoiled.
Oh, and This Missing Manual had lots of practical advice, too. For example, how you might stretch your battery life a bit when you can’t get to a recharger right away (shut off Blue Tooth and Wi-Fi). It also explained very well what to do if you lose your IPhone (you can erase the whole thing remotely and render it useless to the thief).
In conclusion – I got a lot out of this book. If you have an IPhone, get the book – you will be glad you did.
The book is over 500 pages, so don't expect to read it all in one sitting. He explains that the Iphone is not just a phone, but a computer and goes into detail how to get the most out of yours. Great book, great writer.
