About the Author

John Ray is a life-long fan of Apple products; he has been an avid Mac user since its inception in 1984. He relies on OS X both at work and at home because it is a robust, flexible platform for programming, networking, and design. Over the past 15 years, John has written books on OS X, iOS development, Linux, web development, networking, and computer security. He currently serves as the Director of the Office of Research Information Systems at The Ohio State University. When he isn’t writing, he is either re-creating a marine disaster in his living room, or planning a highly elaborate electronics project that will quadruple his carbon footprint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy reference book and lots of guidance 16 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book for the beginner to Apple iMac after years of frustration with Windows PC.

Vista finished me off.

The iMac is proving great value and thoroughly professional.

My iMac guides me through the new operating system and methods of Apple. Easy to follow guidelines and answers to those awkward bits too.

I highly recommend this book for those that want to learn how to use a system that simply works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy help for the Mac 8 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this because as a windows user the Mac is different to get used to. I read it on the ipad because it is a lot better in colour. You can get slightly confused at times as it is an American version and if not careful you can be trying something on your UK Mac that is not available. Very comprehensive book that assumes you know the basics.
