    For experienced Nook users only.

    If you are already familiar with the Nook Color, this book may provide useful additonal information. It's not much help for the neo user who has trouble understanding the "geeting started" material provided by BN. It assumes you are beyond the "getting started" stage and explains things like how to use it with your iPhone, Blackberry etc.
