The Macworld Mac OS X Bible offers a comprehensive look at what is arguably the most complicated and advanced operating system currently available for consumer-level PCs. OS X represents a major step in the evolution of the Macintosh computer, but it is not an easy step. The authors understand this and present OS X in a clear and unintimidating way.
The book weighs in at nearly 800 pages and the authors have covered nearly every aspect of OS X. From installation through maintenance and good backup habits, they explore Mac OS X and all its installed applications. There are few stones left unturned, including such important new concepts as the "superuser" account, the NetInfo Manager, and access rights and privileges.
The friendly and clear style of the writing masks the complexity of OS X and discussing it in bite-size chunks will help any level of Mac user understand. Each chapter is littered with sidebars, notes, tips, and tricks, offering an abundance of information on everything from setting a default Web browser to connecting pre-OS X Macs to their newer brothers to writing scripts in the new AppleScript.
If you're attempting to upgrade, have upgraded, or plan on diving into OS X, keep the Mac OS X Bible handy. Even browsing through the pages long after you've upgraded is a sure way to pick up a new trick. --Mike CaputoFrom the Back Cover:
