How to Do Everything with Your iMac does just what the title promises, covering all things iMac from setting up your machine to editing QuickTime movies to connecting your iMac to a network. Todd Stauffer, best known as co-host of the TV series Disk Doctors, has written a book that is all things to all iMac users.
Stauffer's attention to detail is what makes this book work. Even relatively simple tasks, such as formatting a text document, receive thorough treatment in his hands. Unlike many books on using the Mac, How to Do Everything doesn't give short shrift to running business applications. Stauffer devotes ample time to working with spreadsheets and databases, as well as Intuit's Quicken personal finance software, instead of perpetuating the myth that the iMac is only for working with graphics or surfing the Internet.
Stauffer does, of course, place particular weight on working online, taking you through the nuts and bolts of encoding e-mail attachments and backing up files on the Web--an important bit of advice given the iMac's notorious lack of a storage device.
Whether you're a computer novice or an experienced Mac user looking to get more out of your computer, you'll find a wealth of helpful information in this book. How to Do Everything with Your iMac should rest on your desk right next to your tangerine-colored computer. --John MooreFrom the Back Cover:
