Terrific: it does EXACTLY what it says, "How to do almost anything with an Apple" - and phew, it's not even written for Dummies [with all that appalling & patronising "English"]. If you want to "do almost anything" on a Mac and not spend 3 months with your head wrapped in a towel wading through the [excellent] "door-step" books - eg. Pogue's - what could possibly be better than this? It's also extremely good on what to bother with and, better still, what NOT to bother with.... tho' it does need an update now which would restore its 5 stars for me [Dec 2006]

Format: Paperback
This is not a bad introduction for first time users to Macs and OS X. However, for anyone wanting a really comprehensive handbook to turn to when encountering problems, this book is quite limited. The world it describes is pretty much one where everything does exactly what it's supposed to! For example, I was having a problem getting iPhoto to change the music it uses when showing slideshows - I wanted to import some music from my iTunes library. This book doesn't even mention this topic! For a much more thorough coverage of OS X which includes troubleshooting tips, I'd recommend 'Switching to the Mac' by David Pogue: a real doorstep of a book, but one which I've turned to time and again for help with problems - and where I've usually found the solution.

I wish I had bought this book as a first dip into OS X. If you are thinking of changing to a Mac, then I would highly recommend this book as a primer. It covers all the essentials of getting started and is a useful reference for problem solving. Bear in mind that new Mac's only come with PDF documentation - if you are new to the genre then this is a very useful alternative. It is well illustrated and has the immeasurable advantage of being written in proper English!

I need a good reference book for my job and found this a great introduction to the OS and helped me support the non windows desktops.
