    The Little iTunes Book - All you need to know!

    Reviewed by: Curt Blanchard, Tucson Macintosh Users Group. I¿m a manual kind of guy, by this I mean I actually read `em. Hardware and software manufacturers are not making manuals the way they once did. When you pay big bucks for something, you expect carefully researched and clearly written instructions and frequently these days, you don¿t get either. One of my hottest pet peeves is paying for nicely boxed software and getting only a CD with an onscreen manual. I paid more than a grand for my Mac and it came with a skimpy 48 page set-up guide. I had to pay another $30.00 for ¿The Missing Manual¿ (by Pogue Press/O¿Reilly, a truly excellent resource, by-the-way) to get what I should have gotten in the first place. Having grumped about all this, it¿s hard to fault Apple for not supplying an iTunes manual when they provide the application for free! iTunes is a fabulous, feature-rich application that I use every single day, but not all of its features are immediately obvious or apparent. So, in comes Bob LeVitus to fill the voids. His ¿Little iTunes Book¿ is a goldmine of informational nuggets that will enhance your user experience and listening enjoyment. I¿ve always liked LeVitus¿ writing, it¿s light-hearted but concise and to the point. The book is only a couple hundred pages and it¿s not something you sit down and read cover to cover. It¿s a reference book divided into logical topics - Burning CDs, Managing Playlists, Internet Radio, iPods, the Music Store and much more. My only quibble is the author¿s assertion that downloading shared music from the internet without paying for it ¿may or may not be legal¿ and he devotes pages to the use of peer-to-peer networks. To my way of thinking, it is illegal without question. To be fair, he does agree that it is unfair to the artists. Apple got it right with the Music Store - download to your heart¿s content for 99 cents per song or $9.99 for most CDs - legally. The Little iTunes Book is a highly recommended reference book full of good information and subtle tips. I¿d judge it to be aimed at the Beginner through Intermediate level. The section on Visual Effects alone is worth the price.
