Until reading Mr. Schwartz's book, "My Samsung Galaxy S5," I had been intimidated to purchase and use a smartphone, because it seemed like a whole new concept to learn, which I didn't want to do. I was content using my regular cell phone, even though I realized that most people had, and benefited from using, a smartphone. My brother then told me about a promotion offered by Samsung, at their Galaxy Stores (one is located near me) where you can try any one of their devices for 21 days. I proceeded to select the S5 phone to borrow. However, I didn't want to learn about the phone just by "playing around" with it, by watching YouTube videos, or by asking others how to use the device. So, I looked at different books and read a sample portion of Steve Schwartz's book online, which included the Table of Contents, the Introduction, and part of Chapter 1.From the Table of Contents alone, I could see how very detailed and logically presented the book was going to be. The Introduction, I felt, set the tone for the entire book, including Mr. Schwartz's fine approach to writing and teaching, which I like. In reading part of the first chapter (in the online sample), it was clear how much I would benefit from reading Mr. Schwartz's book. I purchased the book in late July, and I recently finished reading it (including the additional material available from the publisher's (Que) website). Not only was I learning so much about smartphones in general, and the S5 in particular, but I really enjoyed and looked forward to picking up the book each day, to continue my reading. It is written not only very informatively, but in a friendly and consistent style.The layout of the book is excellent.
