    A Must Have for New Users

    I am new to the Apple computers and this book has given me all I the help I need to take advantage of the wonderful and fun applications that the Apple offers. I had only used Windows before and I am also an older adult who needs simple visuals and instructions as computers do not come easily for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone getting a MacPro for the first time. It is easy to use, well organized and seems to anticipate the questions you will have before hand. Also situations that might come up as you are using and learning the various systems are on each page. Have Fun!
