No other author documents the Mac OS the way Robin Williams does. In The Little Mac OS X Book, she brings her inimitable approach to Apple's radically redesigned OS, eschewing jargon for straightforward explanations and a good dose of humor. It's an approach that works equally as well for newcomers looking for a gentle introduction to the Macintosh as it does for experienced Mac users upgrading to OS X.
This practical, how-to guide covers all the exciting new features in Mac OS X, including the new window structure and the Dock (a combination of the control strip, Apple menu, and Application Switcher), and how to use them with common Macintosh applications. Robin doesn't neglect the basics either. You'll find logical, easy-to-follow sections on how to use your Mac for a variety of everyday tasks: printing, sending email, exchanging files, and surfing the Web. And for those frustrating moments When Things Go Wrong, Robin has compiled a troubleshooting guide for common Mac snafus. See for yourself why Robin's Little Mac series has won her millions of fans.
