MacAddict Guide to Living the iLife

by Shelly Brisbin, Mark Rosenthal

Macs today come "fully loaded," but unlike your typical fully loaded automobile, Macs do not come with detailed instruction manuals. Instead, the user is often left to fend for him or herself as they try to sort through all that powerful and mysterious software. On the surface, these programs are relatively easy-to-use, but it is what lies beneath the surface that makes them most useful.

MacAddict Guide to the iLife is your way to take control of this unfortunate situation. Through the use of visual aids and projects, you will be guided through each application's basic features before moving on to the hidden features and time-saving shortcuts.

You'll also explore the Utilities folder as you learn which applications can help you, which ones you should leave alone and which one is the portal to a host of old-school games that you may otherwise have never known existed. MacAddict Guide to the iLife will help you and your Mac live the good life.
