5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Guide to Your Mac 5 Jun 2014
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Published on Amazon.com
Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) is as of this writing the latest iteration of Apple's revolutionary operating system. It is the operating system that comes preinstalled on all Macs, and it is the interface through which you get to interact with your computer. Like all other editions of OS X, it combines the ease of use with a powerful and stable underlying Unix-based engine. On the other hand, Mavericks has also borrowed several neat features from the other Apple operating system: iOS that runs on iPhones, iPods, and iPads.

This Pocket Guide aims to take some mystery out of the Mavericks. It is written with a regular user in mind, and it is a very accessible and convenient little book. It covers all the important topics that any Mac user would come across: setting up your preferences, navigating the file system, using applications and customizing the dock, working with media, using some of the more common apps and utilities, printing and troubleshooting. The book is easy to navigate and its small size makes it an ideal handy reference. The only setback with the size is that most of the screenshots are too small and perhaps not as useful as they could have been in a larger format book.

Overall, this is a very well written and useful guide to Mac and OS X 10.9.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was somewhat disappointed at this book. It is very basic, but provides a general overview of Mavericks. it is for beginners.
