5.0 out of 5 stars great book - would be lost without it Jan. 28 2012
By mackie
I got an iphone for christmas - my first cell phone and was pretty much scared to touch the thing for fear I would do something wrong. the book takes you step-by-step through the basics and then some. Brilliant product for people like me - folks who want to take advantage of the new tech, but who have not kept up and want an easy way in.
