This book served as a great review of how multi-faceted the iPod Touch can be when one can utilize it myriad of functions, particularly with good apps loaded on it. The images support instructions and important points are highlighted in fine form. Without this book, I doubt I would have enjoyed my Touch as much as I do, even after having experience with other iPods and Apple products. I will use this book off and on while I use my Touch to ensure that I make the most of this great tool!

FYI - other books I examined did not have such clear instructions and the images were not as good or in color like this book. Very pleased with my purchase!

When I buy a new gadget, I buy an instruction manual, so I can get the most out of my purchase. This one an E Book which is cheaper then the paper version and I can store on my gadget which is even better. It is informative and answered all my questions. The author even puts in a little humor. If you are a know it all geek, this book is not for you. If you are the average gadget users, it will broaden your experience and allow you to use your electronic device to its maximum.

To much to read.......hard to find the solution to enable me to set it up. Got a friend to do it.

I know some people who are wild about their iPhones. I happen to love my iPod Touches--all three of them. So perhaps it's not all that surprising that I should find myself holding three different volumes explaining the wonders of this miniature marvel. It may not have the talking capabilities of the iPhone (though there are apps that permit "long distance spoken conversation" on an iPod), but the Touch may be the better for it. Consistently, publications like "MacWorld" rate the iPod Touch (all 3 sizes) a full 4 stars while denying half a star to Apple's other products.

The three books are remarkably similar. They all cover the most recent iPod Touch (4th generation running iOS5): they're all relatively heavy books with a generous number of thick, glossy pages; two of the texts, or "Portable Genius" volumes, are published by Wiley. So apart from price, the question is: which one?

Here are the three leading candidates along with some suggestions intended to aid the selection process:

1. "My iPod Touch," 3rd Edition, by Brad Miser, a 2012 publication by Que. My iPod touch (covers iPod touch running iOS 5) (3rd Edition) At 540 pages this is certainly the biggest and most thorough volume of the three. Though not the best "traveling companion," this volume has a slight edge not merely in terms of information but in the quality of its illustrations, with a wide spectrum of colors on virtually every page, ranging from solid colors for illustrations to various hues for highlighting. Miser begins with the assumption that the Touch is like a computer. Connecting to the internet and transferring your documents, audio files, photos and videos on to your pocket-rocket are among the first matters he takes up.

2 "iPod & iTunes Portable Genius," 3rd Edition, by Jesse David Hollington, a 2012 publication by Wiley. At 364 pages this entry is in the "middleweight" category, certainly more portable than Miser's book (above) but not as compact as McFedries' book (below). Hollington's book, which I've reviewed elsewhere iPod and iTunes Portable Genius will appeal to analytic minds that prefer to get the "whole picture"--the paradigm--before proceeding to the individual parts and functions of the iPod. Its expanded section on iTunes is a big plus, since the program has never been more critical to, and integrated with, the operation of an Apple product.

Which brings us to the present book:

3. "iPod Touch Portable Genius," by Paul McFedries," a 2012 publication by Wiley. At 296 pages this is the "most" portable of these three books, none of which will come close to fitting in a rear pants pocket (recalling one of Amazon's ads for the Kindle). It's also the most user-friendly and inviting, especially to any Touch owner who has had little to no previous experience with the iPod. Rather than start with the overall scheme of the device or the big picture in terms of the cloud and internet, McFedries adopts the role of an average person picking up an attractive device for the first time and proceeding to touch and play with the apps on the gadget.

Of all three books, McFedries comes closest to writing a narrative, inviting the reader to join him on a journey that the author has just completed and can't wait to repeat. As a consequence, McFedries communicates his sheer enthusiasm about the machine in a way that's contagious. It's also an invitation to join the author in a fascinating adventure. Whereas the other two books both make excellent "reference" books, allowing the iPod owner to look up information about a specific property of the Touch whenever a question or problem arises, McFedries' book is equivalent to the empirical, inductive, step-by-step learning process of thousands of typical Apple "geeks," none of whom would admit to "reading the manual." It's a more hand-holding approach than the other guides, one that will no doubt appeal to (and benefit) the greater share of readers.

[One minor gripe: both of the Wiley books (2 and 3 above) use periodic blue boxes as a type of marginalia device for inserting "do's," "don'ts," and "cautions." Each of the blue boxes in both books is "washed out" in the area of the first sentence at the top of the box. None is unreadable, but I soon found this technical glitch distracting if not irritating.]

If you have an iPod Touch, you need this book. That is, unless you already know everything there is to know about how to use, sync, backup, and configure your iPod Touch. Unlike most manuals, this book is clearly organized with short, step-by-step instructions and easy-to-understand explanations for everything. If your iPod Touch can do it, it's probably in here. The book has plenty of screen shots and photos to help you understand, and it even includes instructions on how to find your iPod if it gets lost. Of course, there are plenty of instructions for these things out there on the Internet, but 1) They're not all reliable, 2) You may have to sort through a lot of extraneous data to find them, 3) Some of the instructions you find are sketchy or contain too much information to follow easily, and 4) Most importantly, they are not all located in one handy place. This book will be your go-to resource for anything you have to figure out how to do with your iPod Touch. After you use it for just one thing, you'll go back to it again and again, because it makes everything so quick and easy. Highly recommend.

Even though Apple products are generally intuitive and very easy to use without the need to refer to a user manual, over the last few years, Apple has added a huge number of features to its iOS software that you need a book to learn the more obscure and complicated functions.

Printed in full color and divided into 14 chapters, the 300-page book doesn't require you to read it in any particular order. If you want to find the answer to a particular question, you start with the Table of Contents, which lists both the chapter headings as well as sub-headings, so you can scan quickly for something relevant. For example, you want to learn how to stream video to Apple TV. You would look at Chapter 5 How can I make the most of iPod touch video, then go to the sub-heading Other ways to watch iPod touch video, and finally arrive at Streaming iPod touch video to Apple TV. Here, you are shown in 5 easy steps to take to setup streaming to Apple TV. If you have the Kindle edition, then searching will be even easier; just type "stream video to Apple TV" and everything that pertains to the search term will be listed. The Kindle version also costs much less.

You will find a lot of answers about how to more fully use the iPod touch in this book, just like you going into an Apple Store and asking one of the Geniuses at the Genius Bar.
