I purchased this book not knowing what to expect. My adventure began while staring at my broken, out-of-warranty, iPhone 4S contemplating a near-$200 Apple repair bill. In desperation I did a quick search on iPhone repair and stumbled across a web site selling parts for iPhone repair. After digesting information on the site I decided if lesser beings could repair I-devices, I could too. I then began searching for a book telling me what I need to know to repair my iPhone.Believe it or not, I found practically no reasonable reference books available for layman repair of i-devices. After an extensive search, I arrived at The Unauthorized Guide and downloaded it to Kindle. The book did not disappoint.It took only a short evening to digest the entire book. It went quickly because The Unauthorized Guide is well written from a practical point of view. The author does not waste words on theoretical musings and background designed to puff or impress. He provides just enough explanation to frame the objective then jumps into the step-by-step detail of the repair. The book is organized logically and to the point. The author walks you through the step-by-step repair, the pitfalls of attempting the repair, and the tools or in some instances the skills needed to successfully complete a fix to your i-device. The Unauthorized Guide is a terrific tool for anyone with i-devices who lacks deep pockets to use Apple or an authorized repair service. Whether it is replacing a screen, a battery, or installing a new antenna, the guide imparts the knowledge needed to complete the repair.It the book perfect? No. I found it lacking in the area of diagnostics. To be fair, the Apple Genius process involves software tools exclusive to Apple and their authorized service people.
