A best-of-the-App-Store guidebook to the most essential iPhone Apps -- perfect for anyone trying to decide which of the 30,000-plus apps to buy for their iPhone or iPod Touch. This book uses a shopping catalog-style approach, similar to "Lucky" (a fashion magazine billed as the "Ultimate Shopping Guide") or the old J. Peterman catalogs. The iPhone App Book will be great for browsing, great for readers who want to find out which apps are actually worth their time, and great for sorting through the overwhelming number of choices in the App Store.

In a previous life, Josh worked on a slew of national PBS programs at Boston's WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. Now Josh makes words and spins code at his hypertext laboratory in Paris, France, where he lives with his wife Ellen.
