The book was too much to read from cover to cover so I approached it by topic using the index and found that helped with isolated problems but didn't really give a good overview of the phone's capabilities.
Best advice is don't buy iPhone 4s if you really just want to make phone and text calls and then you won't need the book. The instructions that come with the phone are extremely minimal...almost useless...probably to trick you into thinking it is so user friendly you won't need help using it.
Btw...you know all the little joke videos people email to you...the majority of them won't play at all on the iPhone as it won't accept Flash media...same with YouTube videos.

While I am able to figure out what the author is trying to get it, there are quite a few mistakes.
Menu steps are incomplete, and sometimes I need to figure out where options he is referring to are located.
I have learned quite a few short cuts which are very helpful.
I am updating my review. I finished this manual and it was outstanding.
While there were a few small errors in the beginning, it was easy enough to work around it.
I learned so much from this manual.
I am a techie at heart, and since this is my first smart phone, I wanted to know as much as possible about it.
The manual is formatted well so you can go to a chapter that contains info on what you want to know.
It will also be a great reference manual as well.
