Having used MS operating systems for the last 10 years decided to go over to the dark side as Windows 8 & 8.1 were not very impressive. I have found this book to be very helpful and would recommend it to anyone starting with Mavericks.

As the title implies it is a great intro book, if you want more detail about Mavericks, I would use this in conjunction with a more in depth book, if one pops up sometime soon. On the whole a very well written and easy to understand book.

A very helpful introduction to Mavericks for me as a Mac novice. I got the Kindle edition and in retrospect I think the printed version would have been better. I say this because of the need to flit back and forth in this type of book.

I was new to OS & a Mac with Mavericks, very useful, very helpful and helped me do more than I thought possible. I have purchased other books within the series and have become very helpful reference points.

A well written and easy to follow guide to the OS X Mavericks operating system. It explains things in simple language and is well illustrated with lots of screenshots. Also, it is well indexed. It certainly eases the conversion from Windows to Mac software.

A great book. Better in print form that on the iPad as I really liked looking back and forth. The quality of paper strangely is lovely!
