Yes. I actually learned a few new tips from the book. Good value for the dollar.

Is it Windows friendly?  Or does it just have Mac tips?

The tips are useful across both the Mac and Windows versions of iTunes. I think that the “Mac-centric” comment was “just to be safe.”

I bought this as soon as it was released.  Yes, I think it’s well worth the $5 I shelled out for it. 

I’ve had iPods since the very first 5G one and I STILL learned a thing or two.  For someone just getting started with the iPod, this would be very valuable, especially given the low cost and immediate delivery.  Production values on this eBook are comparable to the iPodlounge Buyers Guide—i.e. it includes nice color photos where appropriate and the entire book is pleasing to the eyes.

Go for it! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

RE: Windows friendliness, I’m not sure what you are looking for… iTunes is feature-identical across both platforms (or at least I think it is) and the iPod is platform agnostic. 

The screen shots are clearly OSX.  Like it says in the About section “These tips are mostly written from a Mac-centric point of view, but if you’re a Windows user you’ll still be able to take advantage of many of them.
