Once you get in tune with Scott's odd sense of humour this is a great book. It is very informative and the iTip at the foot of each page contains useful instant information. The item on video was most useful and included a recommendation for a free program to convert video into an iPhone compatible format. I have used this and now have a one hour film on my iPhone that takes up little space and is good quality. After having my iPhone for 2 months now I still find myself dipping into the book regularly as it is easy to find how to do things that crop up as i use more and more of the iPhone's capabilities. I highly recommend this book - it is what a product handbook should be.
This really is a user-friendly little book - a page to a subject -half of the page showing a diagram of the subject matter (i work by pictures personally so that was really helpful for me). Nothing heavy/easy to digest, and covers everything you'd expect Apple to provide you purchasing their phone!! For a pricey item like the ipod, it pays to take advantage of the many many functions it offers - this is the book to enable you to do that. I am really pleased with my purchase.
