This book is as well written as any of the earlier in the series. My disappointment comes from both the lack of highlighting the changes between Lion and prior operating systems, but most importantly, the inability of the author to come directly to the point. There is too much wasted text and reader's time on humor when I'm looking for answers. For someone who has upgraded to Lion from an earlier Mac OS, this book won't produce quick answers about the changes in Lion. Sorry I couldn't be more favorable as I had high hopes for this book.
