A Simple Guide to the Mac is designed to be as simple as possible to follow, but also enjoyable to read.

Tired of books that are as thick as a house brick, tell you five ways of doing the same thing, and leave you more confused than you were to start off with? A Simple Guide to the Mac shows you the best way to use the most important features, leaving out the hundreds of pages of confusion that some other books offer. It aims not to be dumbed down, but easy to understand and friendly, just like the Mac itself.

(Not sure if your Mac is running Mountain Lion? Click on the Apple logo in the top left hand corner of your Mac’s screen, and click ‘About this Mac’. In the window that opens you should see an Apple logo, somewhere beneath which is the version number of OS X. If the version number is (or starts with) 10.8, you are running Mountain Lion, and this book is for you.)
