    This is a Must Have Book

    IPad in the Enterprise by Nathan Clevenger is the most useful resource for every business and professional who does not want to have one foot stuck in the stone age. Extraordinarily well written, this book is both theory based as well as hands on practice. From the history which is relevant to a full understanding of how a Tablet device is both useful to indispensable to a well thought out section on the organizational deployment of devices in the real world environment, this book covers it all. Mr. Clevenger even shows the new developer how to jump right in and start developing applications for this very powerful and useful device. If there was any doubt to whether the IPad was just a toy or a really powerful business tool with unlimited potential, this book not only shows that it is, but explain how to make it so. Written in clear, easy to understand language that even a complete novice can jump right into, the professional will be able to get the benefit of the massive amount of research that went into making this not just a book, but a Bible for using the IPad. I actually sat down and read it like a novel, which for a technical tome is the highest compliment of all! Very very well done.
