    A good basic primer on using Pages on IOS devices. No silly stuff, no "talking-down."

    This is a no frills explanation of how Pages works on the iPad. It's informative and I like the step-by-step instructions. However, I wish it was indexed in a way that when I have a specific question I could click on the indexed item and it would take me to that section of the book.
