I just got some copies of my new iPhone 5 book which is co-authored with my buddy Terry White (I take half the chapters and Terry takes the other half, which I affectionally call “the hard chapters.” LOL!).

Anyway, the whole book is just like my book series “The Digital Photography Book” — the same look, feel, layout, the whole one “one topic per page thing” and so if you like learning from that book you’ll feel right at home with our iPhone 5 book. It’s hitting stores any day now but you can win it  today as I’m giving away five copies — just leave a comment here and you’re entered to win. If you don’t win, you can still get your copy from Barnes&Noble.com or Amazon.com (it’s only around $16 bucks and there’s a Nook and Kindle version of both) and be the first to get it.

Happy Free-Stuff Thursday! :)

  19. What could be better to start the coming new year with a win of Mr Kelby & White’s new book; here’s hoping :-)
