by Michael E. Cohen

It may not wear a coat and tie, but that doesn’t mean an iPad can’t fit in at the office. Joe Kissell’s second edition of “Take Control of Working with Your iPad” helps iPad-toting workers find and use the best productivity apps and techniques.

The new edition includes information not only on the changes that iOS 4 has brought to the iPad, but also on the many new and revised iPad apps that have become available since the first edition was published. With advice that has been polished and refined over many months of real-world iPad use, Joe explores the working possibilities of the device.

From instant messaging and Web browsing to location mapping and note taking, Joe puts the iPad’s capabilities into the context of maximizing productivity and getting work done.

Coupled with “Take Control of Working with Your iPad, Second Edition,” the iPad turns out to be a great business tool (coat and tie remain optional).
