    An Introductory Genius

    I bought an iPhone 5 without any IOS or smartphone experience, although I was familiar with the Mac operating system. I was expecting this book to help me get the most of my iPhone.
    It was helpful in learning some of the basic "how to's", like getting to "special" fields like dates for your contacts, tips on how to make effective use of the limited RAM real estate, etc. However I kept coming up with advanced topics (understanding the difference between the "camera roll" and the "photo stream") that weren't covered and I had to find elsewhere. So I feel that I outgrew this wizard, sorry.
    One huge gripe: The chapter titles are bulky, like "How Do I Manage My E-book Library?" So on my e-reader, the table of contents reads literally:
    "Chapter 4: How Do I Get More Out of..."
    "Chapter 5: How Do I Make the Most of ..."
    "Chapter 6: How Do I Maximize iPhone E..."
    With no index, finding information is nearly impossible.
