Overview

Macs today come "fully loaded," but unlike your typical fully loaded automobile, Macs do not come with detailed instruction manuals. Instead, the user is often left to fend for him or herself as they try to sort through all that powerful and mysterious software. On the surface, these programs are relatively easy-to-use, but it is what lies beneath the surface that makes them most useful. MacAddict Guide to Living the iLife is your way to take control of this unfortunate situation. Through the use of visual aids and projects, you will be guided through each application's basic features before moving on to the hidden features and time-saving shortcuts. You'll also explore the Utilities folder as you learn which applications can help you, which ones you should leave alone and which one is the portal to a host of old-school games that you may otherwise have never known existed. MacAddict Guide to Living the iLife will help you and your Mac live the good life.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Your Mac comes with some pretty amazing software. Even more’s free for the download. Think about it: iTunes, iPhoto, iDVD, iChat, iCal, iSync...and those are only the ones that start with “i.” Then there’s Safari, Sherlock,...wouldn’t it be great if one book covered them all? That would be Shelly Brisbin’s MacAddict Guide to Living the iLife.

Did you know how to import your Outlook Express addresses to Mac OS X Address Book? How to create DVD slideshows that’ll play on your TV? How to copy content from a PDF in Preview? You will. Even the “baby” apps are covered here (Calculator, Chess, Stickies...). Even the really obscure ones (Keychain Access). Hey, you paid good money for your Mac: Why not use all the goodies Apple gave you? Bill Camarda
