I have really been enjoying this book! Mr Warner has an excellent sense if humor, and is easy to follow! I have been using ifixit.com to learn to repair idevices and the site is great! But, this book gives you tips on things you wouldn't have thought to look for- like the brand and where to buy the tape that apple uses! This book definitely has a permanent home in my repair area!
The detail, witt and content along with the photos couldn't be much better. I found this book a BIG help when it came to fixing my grand kids iPods (4 of them!). I know I don't want to repair iPods or I will have to charge more. I also fixed 2 iPhones too. This book almost made it fun to make repairs. The tips and tricks helped a lot too. Worth 2x the price!
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...
