4.0 out of 5 stars A Dummies Book With Decent Print & Paper 28 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At long last a "Dummies" publication printed on decent paper, in colour and with good print! A comprehensive book, well written by a man who knows his stuff indeed. Not enough "HELP" pages for me however, perhaps I am one of the unfortunate few who find the entire iTunes programme very difficult to fathom out, especially when a problem occurs that is not mainstream. However, in the absence of a straight book dealing exclusively with iTunes 11 this is a good as it gets. Great value in respect of price though, well laid out and as stated on quality paper, in colour.

Too much pad compared to pod, but most people should find something they didn't know.
If you aren't so good with the net, finding things out for yourself, or fed up with others asking you how to do things on their ipod/pad, then by this for yourself or them.

Its a very clear book, quite helpful for most ipod users, but tends to concentrate on the ipod touch. ( I have the classic, but its still relevant)
