    E-book format not appropriate for reference manual

    The contents of this manual were very comprehensive and well presented in David Pogue's usual efficient style. However, the e-book format makes it very difficult to use as a reference manual. It is easy to lose ones place and not be able to find it again readily. Also, going back and forth to find chapter beginnings or page references from the index is a laborious task. I would recommend purchasing the printed manual rather than the e-book format.

    Difficult to read and understand

    I wish I had bought aunderstands so I can easily flip around. Adding to the difficulty is a need for a description of the general concepts and design of this operating system. The discussion is too granular and therefore frustrates a reader in search of a good immediate grasp of the design and flows of Lion.

    A must for beginner Apple users

    I just bought my first Apple computer. This book has been a big help. It has answered many questions and I've just began reading it. It is written with much knowledge and with a little humor added. Which makes it a joy to read.
