A great signpost

Comments about oreilly iPhone UK: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition:

Like most people I tend to use things for one or two basic purposes and fail miserably to get the most out of them. It took me three years to discover I could change gear on my Honda by touching a device on my steering wheel. So when I bought my iPhone I decided to get a decent understanding of the capabilities of my new phone and how to use them as quickly as possible. There is any amount of material on the web I can access with my iMac, Macbook or iPhone but none are as comforting as thumbing through a good book.

This edition is delightfully laid out, easy to understand and full of useful tips. I use it as a signpost to further discovery. It has been invaluable and already I am making far more use of my iPhone than any previous mobile phone simply because I have a much better training aid through this book.

Congratulations to all concerned.
