    Excellent! The title says it all!

    I have been a pc user for 8 years. I recently bought an imac for its digital video editing capabilities, and realized this computer can do much more! Being a convert to this Macintosh product has been a slow process. I did`nt really understand how to get around and do fundamental tasks like organize my files, work with Quick Time, or even simple hard drive maintainence. I bought this, and one other book. The other book is a good, but 'How to Do Everything with Your iMac' is a GREAT book. It is just as the title suggests.

    Second Edition Updated for DV!

    I really enjoyed writing this book! Building on the first edition, it's updated to cover Mac OS 9, the iMac DV, iMovie, Palm Desktop and tons of other stuff that comes with the iMac. Questions? Write me.

    Outstanding

    Extremely comprehensive in covering the iMac and the software programs that come with the iMac. This book was also well reviewed in its earlier edition.
