    Why didn't this come with my iphone?

    I am really slow with techi type of things but love to learn. This manual makes it easy to understand the inner workings of the iPhone. This is great for the novice and more advanced.

    iPhone iPogue

    David Pogue's books are always the best. I learned several new things about my iPhone when I just browsed through the book at the store. I had to buy it. I've passed on several tips to friends and family.

    I go Pogue-o

    Despite his rise to geek stardom and broad media impact, Dave Pogue keeps his advice and instructional materials true to his form. He is a true teacher with the clear purpose of enabling his readers/students to feel comfortable and competent with sometimes overwhelming technology. As a one-time creator of computer manuals for my high school's faculty, I tried to model my approach to Dave's.

    Great way to learn how to use your iPhone!!

    I don't like the online manuals and help pages. This book helped me to learn all the "ins and outs " of my iPhone in simple, everyday language, with detailed instructions, that are organized, accurate, comprehensive, clear, and useful. If you really want to know how to make the best use of your iPhone, this is the book/manual that you want to have. Well worth the money!

    Too Obtuse

    I bought this book and somehow found myself not getting it. I've never programmed before and there were just too many words I could not understand. There is so much stuff this book has geared to people who know stuff about computers. It may be a very good book for people who understand how to code.
