Overview

Scott Kelby, the outspoken, founding Editor of Mac Today magazine, takes a no-holds-barred look at what it's really like to be a Macintosh user in a PC-dominated world. This is definitely not another look at Apple's history. Instead, it's a hilarious, off-the-wall view of the Macintosh culture and lifestyle with a take-no-prisoners policy toward PC users.

If you're ready to finally see someone settle the score, this book is for you!

    In Defense of MacIntosh

    Wonderful, true, funny. I couldn't put it down! Thank you Scott for giving Mac fanatics support in a Microsoft PC world. Your wit and knowledge also helped me keep my office Mac. A great book dedicated to those who use the best computers in the world. A book that needed to be written!
