Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
You want to get comfortable with Mac OS X 10.2 in a hurry -- but that’s not all you want. There’s all that hot new “digital hub” multimedia stuff. There’s sharing (you now own a full-fledged multi-user OS). Shucks, there’s even a command line.

Sams Teach Yourself Mac OS X in 24 Hours covers all this, and then some. John Ray and Robyn Ness begin with a concise, fast-paced guide to getting productive with Mac OS X. You’ll tour the Desktop, Finder, Dock, Classic Environment, and OS X’s built-in productivity applications. You’ll learn how to work with digital media; set up networking, iTools, and .Mac accounts; and share your Mac with other users.

That still leaves one-third of a book -- which Ray and Ness use to teach you stuff few Mac OS X users know. How to automate tasks with ActionScript. What you can do with the UNIX command line. How to create disk images, make your system more secure, restore a lost administrator’s password. It’s still a Mac, so this stuff isn’t hard -- but without this book, you’d probably never find it or learn it. Bill Camarda
