Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
This is a book for beginners that, in many editions over the years, has become a classic among users of Apple Macintosh computers....In a friendly, downright chatty tone, Ms. Robin Williams guides Mac users through some of the most fundamental functions, like opening files and using the keyboard's numeric pad....Further reflecting the Mac's ethos," The Little Mac Book" is peppered with clear and clever black-and-white illustrations and is easy to follow.

After reading the booklet bundled with my new Mac Pro laptop, I knew I was in trouble. So I hurried to B&N and found the Snow Leopard Little Mac Book. It is now my Mac bible. Thank you Robin Williams, author. michigan

I was introduced to Little Mac Book back in 2000. I was a graphic/interactive design student and one of my professors required us to get this book. (Many students at that time were new to Apple computers). I already owned an iMac and knew how to use it, but there were little tricks and other features I didn't even know existed. It's informative and easy to follow. I like how it's written and the accompanying screenshots are helpful. (I'm a visual person). My mother recently started using computers and she's older/didn't grow up with computers, so she needs a lot of help. I bought her this newest version of the Little Mac Book and it's still written as well as the older version I have. She references it a lot and it's been a big help. I looked in the book store for other "how to" mac books and they were okay, but after flipping through this one, I realized that it's still the best, from what I've seen.

This book makes everything so simple and so much easier, even for over the hill welders like me. I thought I was left behind by this new generation of digital wiz kids, and maybe so But I will make a very good showing with my iMac and Robin Williams books. This author's books are a beginners 'must have'. A clear portal to the computer world. Daniel
