Product Description

From the Back Cover

Are you looking for a book that focuses on just the most important and most useful stuff about your iPod (including the iPod touch, nano, classic, shuffle, and the iTunes Store)? Well, this is it!

There are basically two kinds of iPod books: (1) The “tell-me-all-about-it” kind, which include in-depth discussions on compression algorithms and tutorials on how to export your playlist in Unicode format. (2) Then there's this book—a “show-me-how-to-do-it” book. Scott shows you step by step how to do the things people really want to learn about their iPods, and he uses the same casual, conversational style that has made him the world's #1 best-selling technology author. This book focuses on just the most important, most requested, most useful things so you can start having fun with your iPod today. Right now!

Plus, there's only one topic per page, so if you want to know how to do something, you turn to that page and it shows you how to do just that one thing. It's a simple approach, and people really love learning this way!

Darn I pods. . . though pretty intuitive, do not come with a users manual, this book functions like one, but is very well laid out, with
lots of pictures (although the pictures are not always helpful) also in our household we have 4 different kinds of ipods
due to different generations, and somehow the book captures all the stuff you need to be able to do with any
given ipod pretty well. I'll give an example, I got a new ipod touch, and could not seem to get it to stay on
shuffle songs, turned to the appropriate page in the book, it told me to tap the middle of the screen once
and then touch a shuffle logo that would appear in the top right hand corner, voila, it now worked, of course
my kids seemed to know this already, but they weren't around, luckily this book doesn't need to go out on the weekends!

My husband bought me an iPod Nano for Christmas and my first thought was "Oh no, how does this thing work?" I ordered this book and within a couple of days was enjoying my new "toy". While some people don't need a manual for an iPod, I certainly did. The tutorials on the apple site are o.k. but this book gives great, simple instructions for how to do things - one topic per page. If like me, you want simple explanations and pictures to go with it, this is the book. Well worth the money!

Not as fun to use! March 31 2010
By R. M. Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book thinking it would be what the title says but it wasn't because it didn't address the questions I had. It was also the wrong book because I didn't have any of the apple ipods featured in the book I will say this though, it is a beautiful book but not much fun! So I returned it to get the Missing
Manual instead.

This book is typical Scott....fast paced, funny, clear, and explanatory. Kelby makes "how to" fun, which ain't easy....
