Reader reviews of MAC KUNG FU:
"Simply amazing. This is a fantastic book. I've been using Macs since the System 6 days, and I learned several new things reading through and trying these tips. Even very advanced users are going to find something here they didn't know."

"I love how accessible this book is. No fluff, no filler, and no extraneous content to weed through. Just lots of interesting things that I could put into practice immediately."
-- Angela Murtha, IOS Consultant, Girl Meets Bit, LLC
"If Mac customizations are an orange, this book must have squeezed out every last drop of juice there is. I would be surprised if there were more that could be done that this book does not cover."
