    Bought this for my 78 year old husband who is new to the iPhone (he got it for Christmas.) He's having a ball with it and the book is a great help.

    I am 55 y/o, female, just got my first SmartPhone.  This book has answered a lot of questions for me and has given information about the Smartphone that I would not have known otherwise.  I would recommend this book if you are a "dummy" like me.

    Great!

    I haven't had time to study it in depth but the few things I have looked up sure made things much simpler. Older people need step by step instructions and this has it!
