    Just wanted a good iPad book for beginners.  The book is full of information but it is hard to find.  For example the touch screen symbols
    and their functions aren't referenced anywhere.  They're in the book, you just have to flip thru pages to find them.  Seems to be intended
    for readers already familiar with the "i" products.  Mixing the info for iPhones and iPads on the same pages didn't help either.  Should have
     looked for an IPad only book.
