Good comprehensive guide to iPod and iTunes,
This review is from: The iPod and iTunes Pocket Guide (4th Edition) (Paperback)This is a good, well-written pocket guide to the iPod and iTunes that covers all models of iPods (iPod Touch and the "traditional" iPods), so you won't find the entire book relevant. As an iPod Touch owner however, I did find the coverage of that model pretty comprehensive nevertheless.
The chapters on the iTunes Store, iTunes Wi-Fi and Apps Stores, are good and there are some nice tips on usage.
I would have liked to see some more troubleshooting information, particularly on setting up the Wifi connection, which can be a real pain.
Overall, this book is a good buy, particularly for iPod Touch users.

Organized for people who own the Ipod Touch, or that and more,
This review is from: The iPod and iTunes Pocket Guide (4th Edition) (Paperback)This guide was disappointing. Chapter two is called "Touching the iPod Touch", and it introduces many of the concepts used later in the book. All the other iPods (Nano, Shuffle, Classic)are discussed in chapter three, but often the author asks the reader to remember what he's read in chapter two, or assumes the concepts are already understood. This means you have to read chapter two carefully, whether you have a Touch or not. Moreover, it isn't always clear whether things said in chapter two are generally true or are true only of the Touch. If you own a Touch, or if you own a Touch plus other types of iPods, and you want a guide, this book may work; but otherwise this organization makes it awkward to understand.
Also, this book will hide all the number keys in the top row of a standard PC keyboard when held one way, and will hide 1 through 7 if held the other way. It's pretty big. This is not a pocket-sized book.
On the plus side, it is inexpensive, and it did... Read more
