I've read my fair share of iPhone "manuals" and how to books since picking up my iPhone 5 a month ago. Before I started I considered myself to be iPhone proficient, but realize now that I'd barely scratched the surface of the device. I'm getting now to the point that I'm not picking up a ton of new information with each book, but I think that their teaching styles vary enough to warrant reviews and comparisons.The iPhone 5 for dummies book is the middle ground of all the iPhone 5 how to books. It provides enough information to get you up and running, it does it in a fairly readable fashion without bogging itself down with step-by-step, button-by-button guides (like Teach Yourself VISUALLY iPhone 5 (Teach Yourself VISUALLY (Tech)) can tend to), and it stops itself before getting into secondary information that isn't required for operation (like iPhone: The Missing Manual does).The book is designed to be read cover to cover, but has a decent index and can certainly be used as a reference. It starts with an introduction section about the book itself and follows with the following sections:1) Getting to know your iPhone:This section covers the basic phone design (where the physical buttons, microphones, and cameras are), very basic phone use (on/off, answering a call, typing, syncing your contacts and music etc.). If you've used an iPhone or an iPod touch before this is a section you can skip.
