This compact manual is all you need to get to grips with the latest iPad. Easy to search with its comprehensive index, well laid out chapters and excellent illustrations. Well worth the price

As we've just bought an iPad, we bought this book to help with anything we might want to know about it and how to use it. The first few chapters are taken up with the whys and wherefore of buying the iPad, but getting past that, there's plenty useful information in the book. Certainly useful given the playing card size instructions that come with the iPad itself!

Not a vital tool maybe, but definitely worth having if you're an iPad newbie.

i don't yet own an ipad, so bought this to see what I was missing. almost convinced, but not totally. Wouldn't mind if i got one for christmas, though. As the heading says, I found the publication very useful and informative, despite its american bias, and, if I should dive in, it will be an essential aid to my understanding.

Got my first Ipad for Xmas, and decided I needed a little instruction help. Found this book easy to read would recommend.

Format: Paperback
The public library introduced me to all kinds of books about the iPad but I decided to buy this one (along with Portable Genius) because it is practical, straightforward, pitched about right between too basic and too technical, compact and not gushy, helpful without being patronising; that is, in the general style of Rough Guides.

Particularly appealing with this book is that it is written by a British author with a sympathetic point of view and specific references here and there to UK contexts. Yet the book would be just as applicable in the USA or anywhere else.

Wanted a concise, easy-to-read handbook. Got a verbose musing to the wonderfulness of IPad. Did Apple pay him to write it? It includes so much turgidly written and unnecessary information that I can't read more than a page at a time and have not yet learnt anything useful.

Most manuals are by IT geeks who speak a different language from the average user, sadly much of the book is in that mould. It's full of musings on the technology, eg "that said, many developers do build separate incarnations of their more popular applications" (p 21) and on scaled apps, Page 20. " it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out, given the alternatives available to developers". No it won't, Mr. Buckley. I don't give an f what developers are doing. Just want to use the iPad now.

Disappointing. I will probably throw it away and just learn by using the IPad.
