      %T "iPod and iTunes: The Missing Manual"

      The introduction provides a description and basic operational
      requirements list for the iPod and iTunes.

      Part one examines the fundamental hardware and operations. Chapter
      one is a detailed review of the iPod hardware and operating system
      interface. Copying of files between the iPod and computers is covered
      in chapter two. The Shuffle gets a special depiction in chapter

      Part two delves into iPod related software. Chapter four contains a
      brief description of the major digital audio formats. The heart of
      the book is probably chapter five, which details the iTunes software
      and functions. (This is also the content of Appendix A. Oddly,
      appendices B-D are only available online.) Multimedia; including
      video, photographs, and podcasts; is the topic of chapter six.
      Chapter seven outlines the iTunes store.

      Part three moves beyond music. Chapter eight describes the games and
      utilities included with the iPod. Use of the iPod as an external
      drive is recounted in chapter nine. Connecting to stereo systems, and
      even cars, is detailed in chapter ten.

      Part four leaps to extreme podding. Chapter eleven lists a variety of
      shareware that can be used for iPod related purposes. Troubleshooting
      various problems is described in chapter twelve.

      This is, indeed, the missing manual for iPod users. The iPod is
      simple enough in basic operation, but for those who move to the "I
      wonder how to ..." stage, this is the next step.
