Vary Good Quick Summary Guide For Mac Beginners
on 26 March 2011
If, like me, you have just come over to Mac from Windows and have had no experience with Mac, then this book is an ideal help. It clearly explains the differences between the functions of Windows and Mac in easy-to-understand short chapters.
The author puts everything into plain English without trying to be a comedian (oh, how I detest authors of guide books who try to inject humour into their work, and fail in all respects).
It is a fairly short book split into 5 sections:
Section 1 - Mac: It just works
Section 2 - Making The switch
Section 3 - The Basics
Section 4 - Getting the Most Out Of Mac
Section 5 - Maintenance
It also has a list of the twnety most useful FREE downloads for Mac with web addresses.
If you have had some experience of Mac but want a more indepth guide to using the Mac OS (current latest is "Snow Leopard") then I would recommend Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Snow Leopard Edition
or (slightly even more indepth): Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals)
