while informative to the new android user this book is a somewhat go over with a manual for the seasoned droid user. not exactly what i thought when purchasing but good to have. my wife recently purchased an android and instead of having to go over every part of the phone with her i just handed her the book. it is a good go to book when you get jammed up with a quick question, very well organized in what phones are covered and glossary index refers you to the page you need promptly.
