1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money 8 July 2014
A waste of money! Language used in the book very hard to understand. Author concentrates too much on the media aspects of the iMac and not enough on the real basics. Feel like a 'Dummy' for buying it!

1.0 out of 5 stars A poor introduction to the Apple Mac 1 Oct 2014
By Spook
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a new Mac owner, I was looking for a book that would give me a good general introduction to using a Mac - I have been a PC user for decades. I was very disappointed. It's style is very flippant and the information not at all clearly presented. There was not nearly enough focus on the actual nuts and bolts of using a Mac for the first time. I would not recommend this book to anyone. There are far better alternatives, which are also cheaper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent all round 22 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant! Just what I needed, going from WIndows to IMac was made really easy with it. I've been using Windows since the eighties so was a bit dubious but this was very clear. Typical prompt service from Amazon made it all go smoothly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed. Info overload 21 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Disappointed. Info overload. This book should be published in three versions. 1. iMac for Windows Users - inc table of nomenclature. 2. Basic iMac for begiinners - inc full explanation of keyboard. 3. iMac for experienced users.

Between them the "for Dummies" and "The Missing Manual" series cover the needs of the appropriate novice extremely well' Every now and then though, neither deals with what you want at that moment but that's life!

THis did not apply to my Mac Mini. It will be difficult to use it as a reference book as it is not easy to jump about between different chapters.
