Although I found this book to cover most topics that one might need for day-to-day usage of the Apple iPad, I don't feel it warrants a purchase. All of the information in the book in readily available on the internet in more locations than a single person could ever need. In terms of writing, structure, and voice, the author clearly specializes in quantity over quality -- there were extended portions of text that really had no place being there outside of adding a few more pages and pandering to the reader.
I would recommend this book to absolutely no one, as if you have the internet, you already have all of this and more (with great clarity and detail, no less). And really, if you don't have the internet at your disposal, an iPad is essentially useless anyway. Don't waste your money.
