The Missing Manual series fills a huge void for people using computer technology products since the standard "documentation" is little more than what would be found in an ad or review. Whenever a new version of anything is released, I wait until the corresponding Missing Manual is published before even considering an upgrade. The manuals are well written, answering the questions that led to the purchase in the first place. While they can be read cover to cover, most users simply use them as a much needed reference. This edition is no different!

You want knowledge about OS X with humor to liven it up as well much more thrown in to spice up the subject, then buy the book, read it, show off what you've learned and be the prodigy on your block. What more can one want? bumdiago
