5.0 out of 5 stars Very clear, well informed. 9 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book saved me a lot of time.
I like the task-oriented approach. i.e. How do I do this or that and then get the answer.
A lot easier than ploughing through Apple's on-line help pages for most simple tasks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping up to date. 5 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Without this book, you can never be sure that you are getting the most out of your operating system.
The problem is that since this book was printed iTunes has been upgraded.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overall generalization 4 Mar 2013
By Michael J. Samu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I expected more technical information and ways to personalize the operating system, but this book only covered the basics, which could be found in much less expensive volumes available.
5.0 out of 5 stars fast delivery and as described 28 Feb 2014
By East of Atlanta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
very helpful and easy to read; was in new condition; lots of pictures and easy read; for anyone with a decent level of exposure to the software might need a more in depth book, but this is great for reference and a increasing proficiency.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average guide to Mac OS 27 Jun 2013
By R. Leeds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide was average. It helps with some of the features, but it doesn't offer a wealth of novel tips and tricks.
