    How to do everything with your Mac

    This book is great for learning how to switch from a PC to a MAC. The writer explains things well and he even adds humor.

    A reviewer

    This book covers most of what anyone new to Mac's or to Mac OS X needs to know. The descriptions and steps are easy to follow and quick to the point, but the author makes the process fun with quick and timely wit. I enjoyed reading the banter as much as I did the 'techie stuff.'

    Truly a work of Art!

    Prior to reading this book I was scared to even touch a MAC. After Reading this great piece of literature, I feel there is nothing I can do on my MAC. Thank you for writing such a truly detailed book!

    Best Computer Book I Have Read

    I have been a Windows user for fifteen years and have read many computer books. This particular one on the MAC is by far the best I have read.
    Perhaps it is not for the pure novice, but for one who has some experience with computers, this is the one to get if you are a new MAC user. Covers everything you need to know in a very understandable presentation. I would strongly recommend this book to any new MAC user and particularly to one who is switching from Windows.
