You can’t learn everything about Mac OS X Tiger: It’s too big. But you can learn 100 things about it. The ones that’ll improve your productivity the most. The ones that’ll make using your Mac even more pleasurable. How do you find those 100 techniques? Ask Mark Chambers. He’s already done it for you.

In Mac OS X Tiger Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks, Chambers explains all 100 -- with unbeatable simplicity, step-by-step, in color, with pictures. So it’ll take practically no time for you to master skills that’ll improve your Mac experience all day, every day.

You’ll start with tips for making your Mac more personal and comfortable. (Did you know how easy it was to use an image from your iPhoto library as your desktop background? Or rotate the images you display as background, even let your Mac pick them randomly, à la iPod Shuffle?)

Next, you’ll get down to work, discovering multiple ways to find and access your files more quickly (and protect them from snoops). Chambers shows how to switch between users without logging off, add web sites to the Dock for instant access, save documents as PDF files, and more. Your Mac is increasingly becoming a true digital entertainment hub; Chambers offers a chapter of multimedia tips, including three on the new iMovie HD.

You’ll find tips for making the most of Safari, Sherlock, Mail, and Address Book; iChat, iCal, and Grab; even Calculator (did you know it can do currency conversions?). And, since bad things still happen to good Macs, Chambers helps you troubleshoot everything from user accounts to hard drives. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only
