5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific resource for Windows switchers 20 Jan 2006
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
I got this book because I'm taking a software class in a computer lab entirely full of Macintosh computers. I'm a veteran computer user, but I felt clueless. I didn't understand the Mac vocabulary, and I couldn't do basic things like find the power button, rename a file, or see what was on the hard drive. I still don't know how to page up and down using the keyboard.

This _Little Mac Book_ was wonderful. It told me the name of the Mac browser (Safari), helped me use the "Dock" (Mac's version of the Taskbar), explained the weird extra keys (the one with the funny symbol works similarly to the Windows Ctrl key), and it gave me the vocabulary to find my way around what to me was an entirely foreign computer. (A Mac "alias" is the same as a Windows "shortcut").

I think this is a great book. Naturally, it's meant as an introduction to Macs, and doesn't go very deep into the details. You'd have to look elsewhere for that. But for an introduction to the Mac computers for newbies, this book is marvelous. I recommend it.

Unless you have never touched a mac before, this book is pretty weak. It arrived quickly and was pristine, but, look elsewhere for better instruction.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough coverage 9 July 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I usually like Robin Williams' books but I am reallly disappointed with this one. I can't even find anything about the expose feature which is one of the main new features for Panther. If she doesn't cover this, I am wondering what else is missing. I really feel like I was cheated out of my money. This book might be useful to someone who isn't familiar with Mac OS, but it won't help anyone looking for new features in Panther.
