    I purchased this book as a gift for my friend’s granny, who recently decided to get an iPhone 4S to keep up with her techo wizard grandkids. I was thinking that I’d ship this book to her as soon as I receive it. However after flipping through the book I decided to keep it for myself – and order another, separate one for her! That’s because there are so many little tips in here I didn’t know about.. even though I’ve had iPhones for a couple years now. For example I didn’t know that if I hold my finger against a picture in Safari that it will allow me to save the image from the web page.. or about the ability to sync with Google and Yahoo calendars. Apple’s iPhone manual is truly missing. This book is nicely formatted with colorful headings on quality heavy stock paper (not one of those black & white dummies books). There is basic coverage of iCloud. I’ll give this 4 stars (instead of 5) because the iCloud coverage is kind of thin, but it’s enough to get familiar with it.

    OK, so I’m not completely computer illiterate… I’m a proficient graphic designer, so I do know my way around a Mac, however, I am new to the iPhone and wanted to get the most out of it, so I ordered this book. MISTAKE. This is not a “How To” book, it’s a compilation of what the iPhone will do. No offense, but that’s what the Apple site is for. If I wanted a detailed description of what the iPhone will do, I’ll go there – I wanted the book to find out HOW to do what I know it can do. This book is filled with great gems, like, oh, you can set up reminders by location. However, there is no help for actually getting this neato feature to work. Want to shoot video – you get a vague two pages with helpful insights like press the “fill in any number of button names here” button to get this feature to work – but they never tell you ANYWHERE where these magical buttons are. There is no introduction that gives you a tour of the iPhone, so if you don’t already have an intimate knowledge of where all the bells and whistles are, you’re on your own. I’ve had to Google almost every feature to actually get it to work (thanks all you iPhone gurus who’ve taken the time to write your how-tos – they’re deeply appreciated). The only positive to this book is the text is quite conversational – but if I want to be amused, I’ll make a funny video… if I can figure out how!

    After reading this I decided I needed a book for iPhone 4S for Idiots. This was bit over my head. They say that there is an icon to click on, but there is no icon where they say. Perhaps someone will write a manual for Senior Idiots in this new tech society we have.
