Become an iTunes Power User with Take Control of iTunes 11: The FAQ

tc-itunesUpdate, October 18: Version 1.2 of this book has just been released. If you already have a copy of the book, you can get a free update (see the book for information on how to do this). If not, you should know that this update includes coverage for iTunes Radio, and other new features in iTunes 11.1.

My ebook, Take Control of iTunes 10: The FAQ was a best-selling compendium of tips, tricks and explanations about how to use iTunes to wrangle your digital media collection. And now, with iTunes 11 pulling the rug out from under long-time iTunes users, I’ve updated the book to cover all the new features in iTunes 11.

Take Control Books has just released Take Control of iTunes 11: The FAQ. At 215 pages for the PDF edition (page counts aren’t relevant to ePub and Kindle versions), there are dozens of pages of new and updated content in this second edition. Priced at $15 (with special upgrade prices for owners of the first edition), this book helps you appreciate and understand the process of bringing media into iTunes, tagging it, adding album artwork, and organizing it into playlists.

Once you’ve become an import specialist and tagging genius, you can enjoy your music, movies, audiobooks, and ebooks, and more without hassles when you want to do something special. Learn how to sync a select subset of music to your iPod, create a party playlist, identify music you haven’t heard in a while, listen to the chapters in an audiobook in the proper order, or get the most out of iTunes in the Cloud features, including iTunes Match.

And this book takes a close look at features new to iTunes 11: the new ways to view your content, how to use the Up Next song queue feature, how to get the most out of the MiniPlayer window, how to search and much more.

To see what’s new in Take Control of iTunes 11: The FAQ, go to the link below and click the What’s New tab.

So, if you want to be an iTunes power user, get a copy now – in PDF, ePub or Kindle format, or any combination of the above – from Take Control Books

    Hi Kirk

    Understand the rationale, but as someone who purchased the iTunes 10 book under a year ago, it feels uncomfortable to part with another 50% for the upgrade.

    Just honest feedback.

      I’m gonna tell ya… I’m REALLY sick of people whinging about paying for upgrades. This is a new book. Is it so much to ask that you pay for it? I suppose you’re the kind of person who’d leave a one-star review of a paid upgrade for an iOS 7 app that costs as much as a cup of coffee.

      Sometimes people like to get paid for their work. Get over it.

    Kirk, does this book cover things like fixing iTunes Match and iPod artwork not syncing and stuff like that? That’s always been my main bugbear with iTunes.

      I wish I had answers to those questions; those are bugs, and there are no workarounds or fixes as of yet.
