Your Pocket PC likely did not come with adequate information about how to use it, whether in print or on the CD-ROM. This book comes to the rescue. Unlike the other Pocket PC book I bought ("How to Do Everything with Pocket PC and Handheld PC"), this book is written expressly for the Pocket PC and the author never mistakenly uses the technically correct but politically incorrect "WinCE" name. This shows he knows who his audience is.
The book starts off with a brief history of Pocket PC (and its WinCE predecessors) and a quick overview of the hardware specs. It even lists benchmark results of a few Pocket PCs, although the list is a bit outdated at this point (Feb. 2001). It then delves into the issues of using your Pocket PC daily. From Pocket Outlook to Pocket IE to Pocket Streets, this book covers them all. There are also a lot of tips to help you get to know your Pocket PC better.
The author's writing style is also laudable. Unlike the other book which is difficult to read, this one is very easy to follow and you'll want to read it again and again, like I do. Beginners and intermediate users alike will find this book invaluable. (Now I wish there were a book for power Pocket PC users...) The author even gives a lot of tips about switching over from Palm.
I highly highly recommend this book to every newcomer to the wonderful world of Pocket PC.

I recd. this book as a joke gift (a Palm user gave it to me after I bought my iPAQ).
When I started using my iPAQ, I didn't have many questions or problems.... which is good because it didn't come with ~any~ reference material! I think Compaq was taken off guard by the iPAQ's popularity!
Eventually, I did find that I was curious about how to do some advanced tasks with the iPAQ. Since Compaq didn't have a reference guide, I opened up my "joke gift" and found this book to provide basic information to match my needs.
If you want detailed instructions or want to read advanced topics, this book is NOT for you. This book is perfect for the new "handheld" user. I also recommend keeping this book in your library for a reference guide (if you have an iPAQ) since none was provided with the product.

I won a PocketPC recently, which I have fallen in love with. The first day I had it, I looked at a few books and chose this one. Inside the cover, it had a date of 2001, not 2000, so it seemed newer than most of the other books I found. Apparently, 2001 is a reprint date, as the majority of the info is old and useless.
The book is not completely ..., as it did help me get around the PocketPC. However, most of the info it helped on, I could have figured out with a bit more experimentation. If I decide I need another book, I may go for the Microsoft Press book. It is about half the price and seems about as complete.

Several of the topics he discusses in this book are now outdated. For example, although your pocket pc comes with Windows Media Player, Microsoft no longer offers support for this and in fact recommends you to download windows media play 7. Or for instance, a lot of the links he lists no longer exist. Furthermore, there are better programs out there to use, like music match for transferring music to your pocket pc. It was a great book in 2000 when it was written, but it is alost 2002 and the book needs to be updated.
