The Mac is famous for its user-friendliness. Maybe that’s why you bought one in the first place. But to make the most of all its marvelous capabilities, you’ll be glad to have an equally friendly resource to help you use it.

Written by the renowned New York Times technology columnist David Pogue, Macs For Dummies has long been the bestselling Mac book because it provides just what you need to know to get the best performance from your Mac. And like the Mac itself, this book is easy to use, with plain-English explanations and step-by-step instructions. The revised eighth edition covers

  • Basics for beginners

  • Set up your Mac, connect printers and other devices, and navigate the desktop and Dock
  • Establish an account with an Internet service provider, set up e-mail, and start surfing the Web

Review:

Whether you have inherited an older Macintosh or just bought a brand-new one, you'll get more from it with the assistance of Macs for Dummies. In addition to the fundamental information that has put generations of Mac users on the right track, this latest edition of a long-standing bestseller incorporates information about the newest Mac developments, including Mac OS 8.5 and the iMac.

On top of author David Pogue's coverage of the system itself and Mac hardware, Macs for Dummies shows you how to use all the most popular Mac application programs, including AppleWorks (also known as ClarisWorks) and Microsoft Office. There's also an excellent glossary that helps you figure out jargon you may encounter in manuals and on the Internet.

This book would be better if Pogue had included more about creating local area networks (LANs) for Macs--such networks are popping up in homes and small offices everywhere. Setting up Mac LANs is so easy, it seems unnecessary to relegate information about it to More Macs for Dummies, as Pogue and his publisher have done. But by itself, the information here is extremely valuable, especially for people totally new to computing. Macs for Dummies makes you feel welcome in the Mac community. --David Wall
