What prompted me to buy the book? Being a Mac user of many years, suddenly things don't behave as expected, or they've moved, or gone, making me less productive and mildy frustrated. Once upon a time I read a book like this on OS 7 and learnt so much I became a 'power user' almost overnight. This book is just as helpful with OS X v 10.2. It leaves nothing unexplored, although it was written before iLife and Safari arrived.
The only unhelpful thing is this book has been published in the printing equivalent of a beta copy: it's not until Chapter 4 that the diagrams match their comments (they're out of step by one); Related Solution boxes pointing to the wrong page; "[insert related solution????]" and "rÈsumÈ" in the text shows that the book isn't quite finished. Either that or the proof reader should be fired.
Despite the glitches, if you asked to borrow my copy I'd say, "Sorry, mine's in constant use; you'll have to buy your own copy."

The book is a great introduction to Mac OS X Jaguar for users of the older Mac systems. It made installation and setup a breeze, and I welcomed the extensive troubleshooting chapter and the introduction to UNIX. The only quibble I have is that some illustrations in Chapter 3 are mislabeled, obviously a production mistake. The book is nonetheless a great read and extremely informative. Highly recommended.
Despite some glitches (eg. it's not until Chapter 4 that the diagrams match their comments - they're out of step by one), if you asked to borrow my copy I'd say, "Sorry, mine's in use; you'll have to buy your own copy."
