Pocket Reference

by Chuck Toporek

O'Reilly's new "Mac OS X Pocket Reference" hits a home run right out of the stadium!

Yes, Missing Manuals are good. As are Little Books, Bibles and Inside books. However few of those tomes fit your pocket, purse or brief case as beautifully as this little gem does! It's an essential quick-reference on OS X that all new users will use at least several times on the very first day it arrives.

Not only does it contain all the really essential commands and keys, it includes basic UNIX command info, printer, modem configurations, and a host of other important help one may need while at the desk or on the road. Add a user, remove a user, tune the dock, correct OS preferences, log in, log out, change passwords, and do just about anything the unfriendly new OS requires you to do.

I actually like it better than the frustrating online guide help. It is well organized, has a good table of contents and index, and is designed with a simple, easy to understand format.

But it's not just about help. Just thumbing through it you'll pick up tips that you hadn't thought of before. (Like building and using the powerful locate database!) It's a great little book, fits nicely in the brief case for travel and gives you the support you need when you need it. If you don't believe me, click here to see the ACTUAL SIZE cover jpg!

Yes, I bought Bob LeVitus' OS X for Dummies for the kids and at home. . . and yes, I bought Robin William's wonderful "Little OS X Book" to send off to college with my daughter. But this one . . . it's in MY brief case all the time.

The Max OS X Pocket Reference caught all our Mac User's fancy and won itself a place in the Editor's Choice Circle for July 2002.
