    Excellent Help with Snow Leopard

    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.

    Read Little Mac Book 9 years ago in school and bought this newer version for my mom, who's new to computers

    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.

    Not a 'fish out of water' anymore!

    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
