See how much more your Tiger-driven Mac can do. Tweak. Goof around. Explore. Spelunk. Your guide: Scott Kastner. Intelligent, witty, experienced, he’ll challenge you -- and keep you safe throughout your adventure.
Kastner starts with stuff that’s accessible to any Mac user: Finder, Dock, and Dashboard tricks, Preferences shortcuts, and a whole chapter of user interface goodies. (iTunes, too: for example, how to outsmart Smart Playlists, or create iTunes entries for “hidden” CD tracks.)

Uncover the primitive (but addictive) games hidden within the emacs text editor. Even start building your own widgets and Spotlight importers. OK, this will take some coding.
