"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"Pogue, the New York Times computer columnist, is among the world's best explainers."
-- Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired

"...it seems logical that O'Reilly Press would release yet another in a long line of Apple product bibles. 'iPod: The Missing Manual' is just that--an organized and detailed compendium explaining how to utilize the iPod's numerous features...O'Reilly Press is renowned for its in-depth instructionals and the iPod manual is no exception."

"And you thought the iPod was just a 21st-century Walkman. This book will show you how very much more it is ? it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Palm Pilot, it's a Gameboy, it's an eBook, it's an alarm clock and it's a fabulous portable hard disk with tons of capacity!... If you're a Missing Manual fan, this book is highly recommended. I didn't realize how much I needed an iPod until I read this book!"
--Curt Blanchard, Tucson Macintosh Users Group, October 2003

"The little foldout pamphlet that comes with the incredibly powerful iPod doesn't even count as a manual, so be grateful for this comprehensive book that covers all three generations of iPods. You need this book if you want to use your iPod like a grownup...Getting stuff on and off the iPod is a lot easier, a lot faster, and much more fun with this book as a guide."
