    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    This is a well written, very informative book that most users will find very useful. I’ve been a Mac user since the very beginning, bought my first in 1979, and have exclusively owned Macs ever since, including in periods when doing so was painful. I’m not an expert, yet am experienced. I learned a number of new ipod related techniques from this book. What “with David Pogue” means is not clear. I gather he helped with editing. J.D. Biersdorfer writes well, yet it clearly seems she is the author of note with Mr. Pogue’s involvement being limited, perhaps on the cover to boost marketing? I enjoy David’s writing, hence my veiled complaint. All in all, a useful, very practical book full of insight and technique. Highly recommended.

    A thorough and approachable guide for the entire lineup of Apple iPods and iTunes, January 5, 2013

    This review is from: iPod: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)

    This newest offering from the Missing Manual series focuses on the iPod touch (presumably because it has the most features and the most things to know), but sets aside full chapters to talk about each of the other models (shuffle, nano, and classic). These sections cover not only how to control each device, but also some of the unique ways that you might choose to use them. For instance using the classic as a portable hard drive is discussed, as is using the shuffle as a flash drive and using the iPod nano as a personal trainer. If you already own your iPod you may not use or even read the sections for the other iPod models, but if I was in the market for a new iPod I’d probably look here to help me decide which model fit my needs best.

    Once you’ve settled on a section to start on the book reads very well. The layout is nicely set up to direct you to the information you need. Important terms are often bolded and defined so that even the most novice reader can understand what the author is talking about and follow the step-by-step directions. I thought that some of the directions were more well laid out than others. For example, many of the directions are accompanied by pictures some of which are helpful and highlight the buttons you’ll need to press. This is nice and makes learning easy, but some of the other pictures are just screenshots that don’t really add to the directions that they accompany. If you are a little tech intuitive (and I mean just a tiny tiny bit) or if you read the entire book front to back and pick things up as you go this doesn’t prove to be much of an issue, but I might hesitate to ship this one to grandma in hopes of never having to answer a tech question again.

    There is also a troubleshooting guide at the end of the book just in case your iPod isn’t working properly.

    Along with its coverage of the iPods themselves this book covers iTunes in great depth. It includes the basics like buying and organizing your music and videos, making playlists, and importing music from CDs. It also has some more advanced and niche information like what video file types will work with your device (it also provides software suggestions for converting between file types). Overall the iTunes coverage is very strong (and rather long making up close to 100 pages of the book) which is great because regardless of the type of iPod you have you’ll need to use iTunes and with this book you’ll be able to get the most out of it.

    ****
    Overall/Final thoughts
    Great coverage of the iPod touch
    Good coverage of the unique features in each of the other iPods in apples line (nano, shuffle, classic)
    Thorough coverage of everything iTunes
    Most of the walk throughs are clear, but some could have more helpful pictures
    ****
    4 stars and a strong recommendation
