Overview

What do you get when you cross a Mac with an iPad? OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Its 200 new features include iPaddish goodies like dictation, Notification Center, and Reminders—but not a single page of instructions. Fortunately, David Pogue is back, with the expertise and humor that have made this the #1 bestselling Mac book for over 10 years straight.

  • Big-ticket changes. Twitter and Facebook intgration. Air-Play TV mirroring. Power Nap. Game Center. Documents in the Cloud. iMessages. Gatekeeper. If Apple wrote it, this book covers it.
  • Mountain Lion Watch. This book demystifies the hundreds of smaller enhancements, too, in all 50 programs that come with the Mac: Safari, Mail, Messages, Preview…
  • Shortcuts. This must be the tippiest, trickiest Mac book ever written. Undocumented surprises await on every page.
  • Power users. Security, accounts, networking, build-your own Services, file sharing with Windows—this one witty, expert guide makes it all crystal clear.

There's something new on practically every page of this new edition, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. Apple's brought a new cat to town, and Mac OS X Mountain Lion: The Missing Manual is the best way to tame it.

This book does everything I needed and expected. I am new to the Mac but not to computers or Unix/Linux. This book covers all of the tips and tricks to the Mac OS X desktop to get you up to speed quickly. Just what I wanted.

Like all David Pogue manuals this is a must have. Explains all of the system clearly, with illustrations and sidebar hints, Great to own as Apple no longer packs a users manual with their updates.

Chases a zebra. Suddenly, muscles rippling, she sprang gracefully from the ground, sunk her teeth in, and carried her food back.

The text of this book is wonderful, insightful, and helpful. The formatting is awful. Special characters show up on the NOOK as empty square boxes (example, the Apple special key) so it's impossible to discern some tips and instructions. Furthermore the book includes internal hyperlinks. This results in clicking on links accidentally when swiping to turn a page, and as there is no back button you jump from whatever page you were on to another page somewhere else in the book with no way to jump back. Sadly, I think the NOOK version of this book was a waste of money - I should have just bought the hard copy and avoided the hassles.
