The Mac is Not a Typewriter, Second Edition
by Robin Williams
This is the second most recommended book for new Mac owners next to Robin's "Little Mac Book."
A style manual for creating professional-level type on a Macintosh PC. It presents simple typographic advice for anyone who needs to prepare documents for print. This edition contains 20 updated pages and a revised fonts chapter to reflect developments in typography and software/hardware standards. It looks at such topics as real versus generic quotation marks, using real apostrophes and hanging punctuation.
Cahners Business Information says:
"19 short lessons, this concise, simple style manual directs a Macintosh user on how to produce professional quality manuscripts. Punctuation and grammar hints are coupled with instructions for manipulating the Mac to the writer's advantage. It is aimed at desktop publishers as well as novice writers seeking a polished look for term papers."
Like I said... highly recommended for new Mac owners.
