The authors of this book use a rather text-heavy approach to their topic, which means they can communicate a lot of information about why things are as they are, in addition to the usual (and competently presented) how-to material. This style, with relatively few illustrations and procedures in paragraph (rather than numbered-list) form, will appeal to people who are willing to do more than glance at a page for a quick answer. Whether you're learning how to manage files, connecting to the Internet, or automating tasks with scripting, you'll appreciate the authors' detailed approach. More information about some subjects--especially networking with Windows and Linux machines--would make this book better, but MacWorld Mac OS 9 Bible is a great resource already. --David Wall
Topics covered: Mac OS 9 for novices, intermediate-level users, and (in some areas) power users. All user-level details (as opposed to those of interest to programmers or system administrators) receive attention. Basic tasks (using programs and files), intermediate-level tasks (connecting to the Internet, advanced multimedia, and performance tweaking), and advanced features (AppleScript and local area networking) get approximately equal coverage. Sherlock 2, speech recognition, and multiple user accounts are examined particularly closely.
