HASH(0xa3069b4c) out of 5 stars A waste of money Jan. 8 2008
By Inquiring Mind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed by the deficiencies of this book. First, it focuses far more on iTunes shopping and related procedures than on basic use of the iPod itself. iTunes is hopelessly limited for anyone not into popular culture, so that half of the book is worthless to me. Second, the book is useless as a reference tool -- not a single question I've had has been answered, or if the answer is there, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Example: I wasted a lot of time trying to get an audiobook I own on CD to go into the Audiobook section of the iPod menu. I finally learned from a Genius at the local Apple store that only audiobooks purchased from iTunes will go into that section of the menu. Try finding that information in this book. Third, terms are used as they are understood by the technorati, but never defined for the rest of us. If I wanted a book that told me how to get my iPod to tap dance and butter my toast, I would not have bought one with a title which indicates it deals with basic information. That information isn't here.

HASH(0xa3069d98) out of 5 stars Dummies to the rescue March 25 2008
By Silver Fox - Published on Amazon.com

I was ready to get rid of my iPod. I was totally frustrated with trying to use it and iTunes was driving me nuts. Finally, I bought this book and all came clear. This should be the manual included with every iPod purchase. The book is well thought out and laid out well. One will easily be able to use this as a reference in the future if need be. If you are about ready to tear your hair out, just want to perhaps learn a few more advanced techniques or you just want a good solid manual for your investment, this is the book for you. What more can I say?

The instructions that came with the iPod are obviously for experienced users. I bought my iPod for the space and had never used any kind of mp3 player before. The dummies book was a great help and has taught me little tricks in addition to everyday use.

HASH(0xa2f7806c) out of 5 stars fabulous Jan. 20 2008
By M. Ahern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a true IPOD "dummy", never having ever touched an IPOD before I bought my nano, I found this book helpful. It is for those looking for basic and intermediate levels of usage on their IPODs. It doesn't help those who want more advanced direction, but there are other books for that. Overall, it is worth the price.

I bought this book and another one, Absolute Beginners Guide To iPod and iTunes. The latter one was the most helpful to me for getting my iPod up and running. I'm still holding on to this one, though, because it might be helpful for when I become more confident and want to expand my horizons with all my music that I already have available. If you already have an iPod, this book will be really helpful.
