    You should not be without this book

    Every question you may have about iPod Touch is in this book. It is well organized and walks you through every step by number 1, 2, 3, etc. Easy to follow with appropriate pictures of what you should see. I use and enjoy manuals. Just reading this book in various chapters will cause you to pick up information you have't discovered. The red shaded areas tell you what you can't do. Make it your iPod Touch companion.

    the PERFECT companion to the touch

    This book has it all. Color pictures with numbers that go with each step to point at what you need to do. Clear explanations and LOTS of things are covered. I haven't found anything yet that isn't answered by this book.

    Excellent in many ways

    Wonderful step by step instructions walking you through set up and customization as well as real life visuals of what the iPod looks like as you go through the various steps. Combining both the step by step text and visuals is super user friendly. Also, in the book he says you can find extra help in various places like Apple Support, iPod community forums, and himself! He gives you an e-mail to contact him and he responds! Very helpful and awesome!
