This book is a wonderful, full color step by step introduction to the original iPhone. Note that this book doesn't cover the new 3G version of the iPhone. Although I don't have an iPhone yet, I was interested in an iPod Touch since it has everything but phone functions and it was very helpful for navigating through the menus and explaining what the settings cover. The full color pictures are excellent screen shots of the various features. It also walks you through basic set ups for personalization, and explains how to use the main features. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in an iPhone or an iPod Touch and not sure if you will like it. When the 3G version of this books comes out, grab the update. Great info for a reasonable price.
After purchasing my I Phone, I was looking for some instructions. I found a folded leaflet with very little useful instructions. I found this "Visual I Phone Quick Tips", very helpful. I helped my neighbor with his as well. He has had his for four months and learned a lot from my book. Thanks to Visual.
This book should be required reading for non technical I Phone users. One picture is worth a thousand words applies here. It uses text and illustrations to show you how to get the most from your I Phone.
