This ebook is perfect for getting up to speed fast. Photos clearly show the details of the iPhone, with labels so you understand what you are looking at. Text is concise, clear, really easy to understand. Exactly what I was looking for!!! Thanks!

This book gave me detailed information in a concise, easy-to-read format without all the extra blah, blah, blahs... Just what i was looking for.

This book was so well written and organized it should come with the new iphone 5. I was able to read it quickly, with my new iPhone 5 in hand, and learn a host of new tips. I've been an iPhone 3 and iPad 2 user so I have familiarity with these Apple products. But, this iPhone 5 book taught me things immediately about my new phone that may have taken me weeks to figure out. This book is underpriced and over delivers. How cool is that!

I've had my iPhone 4s for a while, but my son seems to understand it better than I do some days, so I finally decided to learn how to use it. A lot of the iPhone 4 books used the old operating system, which was confusing me. I haven't had any problems following this one since it uses iOS6. The information is straight to the point without being too wordy, and there are plenty of pictures so I could tell I was looking at the right thing. I feel like I can do what I want on my phone now.

This book delivers by covering everything I would want to know about the iPhone 5. The author doesn't get caught up in all the different ways you could do something and just shows you how to get the tasks done quickly. The detailed TOC also makes it easy to jump to whatever I want to learn instead of having to read the whole book in one sitting. More than worth the price.
