Macs are fun--they even smile--but before long, you'll find yourself merrily mousing away on your Mac when the dark strains of required productivity become audible. What to do? AppleWorks is likely to exclude the bit of software you need to get your work done, and AppleWorks 6 for Dummies can show you how to use that suite of applications in no time at all. You'll be back to listening to MP3s while surfing the Internet in no time at all.
In this book, a couple of Mac experts (including Mac demigod Bob LeVitus) explain how to use the productivity applications that make up AppleWorks, getting straight to the point without sounding dry or dull. Whether you're interested in using the index to locate the authors' coverage of how to group objects in AppleWorks' paint program or in following along as they reveal the intricacies of spreadsheet design, you'll be pleased by what you find here. The authors have written lots of easy-to-follow procedures (that include information on what you should do and what you should see as a result) and sprinkled their chapters with solid tips. These tips explain how to create image collections, for example, and how to avoid common pitfalls in database design. --David Wall, amazon.com
