This is a good book, but there are better ones at B&N. Overall this is a good starter book for general readers and students who want to know a little more about Mac.

I find this book extremely helpful in providing information about Macs. As an 'older' Mac user I needed advise about the capabilities of my computer and how to solve computer issues. This book is it! From the hip good-looking kid on the cover to the last page, I am thoroughly enjoying this book and find it very useful. A must for all Mac users!
