My Take on the BookThi book i full of great information that will definitely get you ready to use your iPad up and running. The book is a great read and though it look long, it is an easy and quick read. The book is full of pictures and reference information. and includes a large number of pictures for reference purposes and learning about your iPad without actually having an iPad in front of you.

What makes this book great is that it covers most of the information that the new user will need and be interested in. Some of the information was simple such as turning the iPad off and on. The book is well set up and made using the iPad simple. In the end of the book they even get into more advanced topics such as moving Microsoft Office docs to and from your iPad and suggested apps - though the apps are a bit out of date.

Overall, this is a great book and one that I would highly recommend.
