2.0 out of 5 stars Better Out There 5 Jan 2014
By Macreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Does not get into much detail. I love the OS Bible Series and since there is not one for Mavericks I was hoping this could replace it, it didn't.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best of many 14 Jun 2014
By jmo7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are many guides written for the OS X, but this one is the best. It took lots of hours to read through it, but was well worth it. Many good pictures, and the explanatory writing is easy to comprehend. (Unlike other manuals.) Covers everything you would want to know and more.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but for beginners only. 10 Feb 2014
By Alex K. - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very good book with good informative graphics, IF you are an absolute beginner to Mac. If you have ever used a Mac for more than a few days, or you want to actually troubleshoot as well as improve your skills, you should look to something more advanced. The Missing Manual series is great.
1.0 out of 5 stars Too basic 8 Jan 2014
By David - Published on Amazon.com
There are better books on this topic. This is just so basic and non helpful. I did not like it and I bought another.
