Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
This is a book for beginners that, in many editions over the years, has become a classic among users of Apple Macintosh computers....In a friendly, downright chatty tone, Ms. Robin Williams guides Mac users through some of the most fundamental functions, like opening files and using the keyboard's numeric pad....Further reflecting the Mac's ethos," The Little Mac Book" is peppered with clear and clever black-and-white illustrations and is easy to follow.
