"The publishers of this book who are also the distributors got off to a good start by sending it out by first class post on the day it was ordered. There is nothing more frustrating than having a new toy and not being able to play with it properly and this was immediately overcome by their prompt service. Impressive. The guide itself is easy to follow and full of tips , notes about matters worth remembering and warnings of things you should be aware of. The chapters are denoted by little colour coded tabs on the side of the page and the inside front cover has quick tips for using the iphone. The book begins with a chapter on basic information about the iphone and gives the reader a tour of the buttons, the screen and the operation of the smartphone. This is followed by chapters covering the phones functions, messaging, obtaining,playing and managing music and video, photos and video, the standard apps., web browsing, emailing, the accessibility settings , working with apps. and troubleshooting. Every page has good pictures so that the reader can see what the phone screen should look like during a particular operation being described . The book is easy to read and easy to follow. It does what it says on the cover." (from Amazon.co.uk)
