1.0 out of 5 stars not for dummies 4 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
titled for "dummies"ie,beginners but it is far too techie and not written in easy to understand language.It presumes you already know what all the tech and computer speak words mean.My conclusion is that it is not suitable for described purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars COLOUR VERSION PLEASE 30 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
EXCELLENT book for those who want more detailed stuff. Shame it is in black and white. However, I give it 4 stars for content and value but would pay at least half again for a full colour version.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good 16 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
About 30% through the book and so far so good. Writing style is technical + attempts at light hearted banter... but its ok it works for me and breaks up the dry details enough to keep you me interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much needed assistance for Mac newbie 29 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have just shifted to a new Mac from a PC and, once you get beyond the basic functions ( bit of guesswork allied to similarities with iOS) , some help was really needed to start to better use Mavericks and the supplied software.

Three weeks in and this guide has proven to be a godsend and is used as a first choice reference tool.

Happy to recommend.
