Mac OS X Panther Killer Tips by Scott Kelby

Nothin' but sidebars! The hottest collection of cool tips and hidden secrets for the pro who needs results FAST! Not another newbie book. OS X Killer Tips speaks directly to the daily Mac user who needs to get the most out of their Mac NOW. Other such books tend toward fluffiness, where Killer Tips is all business.

Time is money and a lot of experienced users find themselves trying to save time by skimming through larger computer books in order to pull out the useful nuggets of info that are often placed within what we call sidebars (i.e. those Note/Tip/Warning boxes). The Killer Tips series was developed by Scott Kelby because he recognized how useful non-beginning technology users find those cool "I didn't know THAT" sidebars that are peppered all over the other computer books out there. This book is all about speed; showing the Mac professional how to get more work done faster, while actually increasing quality.

This book has wonderful graphic design, but the content is weak. Even though it is nearly 300 pages long 'and relatively expensive', one learns little they can use day-to-day on their Mac. I cannot recommend this book. Is simply isn't worth it -- and the author cannot resist using puns -- no matter how silly, on almost every page. Instead, take a look at the books on Apple by Robin Williams, and even better are those by Buckley & Clark.
