Review:

This guide takes the approach that handheld computers based on the Palm operating system are so user-friendly and crash-proof that it's useless to spend a lot of time telling you how to get it to work. Rather, How to Do Everything with Your Palm Handheld is more of a taskmaster, leading you through such productivity tips as tracking expenses, planning trips, and using the Palm as a business productivity software suite.

Though the book is weighted heavily toward the PalmPilot, it is targeted toward users of all devices based on the Palm OS, such as the IBM WorkPad, the Qualcomm pdQ, and the Handspring Visor, to which the authors devote an entire chapter. What Dave Johnson and Rick Broida do best is explain how to get the most out of those features you probably gave only a cursory glance to.

Most users probably create to-do lists on their Palm handhelds, but how many of them import those lists into other applications, such as Microsoft Word and Excel? Both programs build tables based on to-do list data. Palm handhelds also come with an applet called Sun Compass, which could come in handy when you're on the road.

Given that so many people use their PalmPilots as glorified address books, the tips Johnson and Broida supply are highly useful. How to Do Everything with Your Palm Handheld will show you how to make these popular devices the ultimate productivity tools. --John Frederick Moore
