The iPhone changed the world. With an iPhone in your pocket, you have more computing power available to you than NASA did for the moon shot. How much of that are you using?

Learn to get the most from your iPhone from this media-rich book that is sometimes user guide, sometimes opinionated app recommendations, and sometimes iPhone sensei. Built entirely in iBooks Author, this multimedia book includes screenshots, photo galleries, video screencasts, and audio interviews all engineered to make you an iPhone power user. There are over 50 screencasts adding up to over two hours of video instruction, 450 pages, 44 chapters, and over 65,000 words to help you learn how to squeeze every bit of awesomeness from your iPhone. 

The material is accessible to beginners and power users alike with a thoughtful, fun, and systematic approach to iPhone mastery. Moreover, this book is beautifully designed and a joy to read. This is the seventh book in the MacSparky Field Guide series.

Not As Advanced As Advertised

All of the reviews (on Apple blogs) said this was just as good for advanced users as beginners so I figured id give it a shot. A few chapters in and I don’t feel as if I’ve learned much that is new. There are some dead links (like one for the Nomad wallet case) and even one that is supposed to link to a later chapter and just says LINK. The quality of the writing is good but I feel like it is priced for advanced users but written largely for beginners.

Disappointing for a David Sparks product

I’m a big fan of David Sparks and have purchased four other products of his. Frankly, this was a disappointing book and not up to his previous high standards. There are numerous typos, some empty references and a bit of clunky writing. While I know he spent a lot of time compiling this book it is poorly edited and not ready for release. If you are reasonably well read about the iPhone you’ll find too few nuggets here to justify purchase.
