Seems to say EVERYTHING. I say 'seems' because it will be a long time before I wade through all the invaluable tips inserted page by page. In stark contrast to Apple's own declining to offer proper User Manual - only a ponderous Help option which strained my elderly attention span. I can keep Pogue's book open on my Kindle or iPad while keying my main Apple. e.g. in the first few pages I learned the value of "CMD ," Try it and see, or find, if you can, via Help!

If like me, you have just switched to a iMac after years on a Windows PC, then this is the book for you.
With over 850 pages, the book covers everything you need to know, from getting started on the Mac, to a deeper understanding of the OS X and its many apps.
To quote the book " OS X Yosemite: the Missing Manual is designed to accomodate readers of all technical levels" and it does in spades. I highly recommend this book, its well written and highly informative.

The last edition of this manual that I bought was in 2007 – for OS Leopard. It’s well worth getting an update after that length of time since there is so much that has changed, whilst you will have a hard job finding another source of information for Yosemite that is as comprehensive and clearly written as this one.
One downside – of a relatively minor nature – is that there is quite a sprinkling of errata throughout the book, such as incorrect references to pages and non–existent figures. These can be viewed on the publisher’s website.

I really don't know what I would have done without this book. It's been perched on my knee while I sit before the computer for the last week. Going to OS X after 30 odd years of windows was a bit of a culture shock, and the fact that I've just nearly got my head around it is in no small way due to this book. Almost all of the questions you need answered are in here. It is well written, comprehensive, easy to understand as long as you are reasonably familiar with computers, and is a must for anyone using an iMac or Macbook for the first time. Wonderful.

The author likes Mac OSX Yosemite better than I do. I would have preferred to stick with 10.6.8 but Yosemite 10.10.2 came with a new computer. The change meant obtaining and installing updates or alternatives for nearly 75 percent my applications (3 weeks work) and spending an extra 200 euros where updates were not free. The book did explained many things that were not obvious (and I am not new to Macs, I have been using Macs for nearly 30 years). The authors web pages are useful too. For many people it will be a worthwhile investment. However, you should not expect answers to all your questions, not in a book that is only 850 pages long. Most of my questions that I could not find answers to were resolved by Googling various "How-to" forums on the internet.

Just too comprehensive! I really don't need 858 pages of detail. It makes matters seem more complicated than they need to be. The information I want at any given time must be in there somewhere but I can't find it. If, like me, you are a Windows PC user moving to Macbook/Yosemite and you need help then this isn't the book. It's a very detailed manual, not a guide. It just isn't organized in a way that guides you through tasks. When I come up against a 'how do I do this?' problem I find it easier find the answer on Google rather than spend ages searching through the book and not getting a clear answer anyway. There is a lot of information in the book but not presented in a very useable way.

As is usual with David Pogue manuals, this is an authoritative, well-written and exhaustive reference. It is is hardly something you read through casually, but rather a long-term source to consult when a question or a problem arises that you can't find the answer to readily elsewhere.

Well up to the usual standard. Pleasant surprise when I found out that the selling price was 25% lower that the pre-publication one.

I have earlier Missing Manuals for Mountain Lion and Mavericks. This is at least as user-friendly as them.
