    Not bad but also not very good

    I was hoping for more of a step by step book to explain the new operating system lion. i did not get this. The book is more like an introduction to Lion. The book does not go into a whole lot of detail on many subjects. This book left me wondering if there is something out there that I need -- step by step, example by example of the features of Lion. There are also mistakes (e.g. click anywhere on the desktop to bring up a finder window -- not so).
