I ordered this book at the same time as "Snow Leopard - The Missing Manual" by David Pogue. I highly recommend buying both books if you can. A few things I haven't found in this book, I find in the other, and vice versa. Or maybe a more complete explanation in one about something, than the other. Being brand new to the Mac, I feel like both books together give me the complete picture, and so far I have found everything I need to know, between the two books.

After reviewing almost all the new Snow Leopard books in bookstores and libraries, I found this ultimate reference. Everything you need to know! Although the "visualized" series of OS books are more appropriate and easier to follow for the beginner, this book is a superb tool for computer enthusiasts who want to analyze everything that's "under the hood."

For my new experience with the Mac OSX I wanted the best book available.
I've read all the reviews available online about Mac OS books, I needed something that could support me from the very beginning to an advanced knowledge of the OS.
This book has been more than I could expect, it helped me in the installation and took me deep into the most important things to know in order to be considered a real Mac user. The explanations were smooth and deep at the same time, and the 800 pages just flew in a couple of weeks.
I've read the book twice and learned many thing I just couldn't imagine an OS could do.

I definitely consider this book the best Mac OSX Snow Leopard guide.

I'm really astounded that the reviews of this book are so good...so far, every time I've looked something up, I've been thoroughly disappointed with the lack of usable information...maybe it's the way I use it as opposed to the others...I want to use it as a reference when I'm stuck...I'm pretty computer savvy overall, but as a new Mac user, I'm still on a significant learning curve...I especially found the mobileme information to be woefully lacking...

It is for novice users as well as for pro users. For pro users it will be a good quick reference book. For novice users like me it is fantastic. Worth buying.

16 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Caponsacchi HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 9, 2010
Format: Paperback
It's essentially between the "Bible" and David Pogue's "Missing Manual" for a tome that's sufficiently comprehensive to serve as a resource, or reference, manual for what has been characterized by some professional reviewers and "expert" users of Mac OS as more of a "tweaking" of the preceding Leopard OS than an overhaul demanding extensive study. In fact, were it not for the example of numerous "naive" Mac users who function perfectly well without manuals (not even the free Mac tutorials), or who don't see any difference between "Spotlight" and "Finder," I would be inclined to support a Luddite position. Not that there isn't a difference (between Spotlight and Finder, for example--an enormous one), but with Macs you'll often do just as well knowing less than more. Simply don't load up your machine with all sorts of downloads, apps, widgets and extensions, and try not to share your personal computer with numerous users (I frequently wish Mac systems did not have so many provisions for families, communes, etc., using the same machine via individual accounts, the elimination of which, it seems to me, would simplify things considerably, obviating the need for so many accesses--the "Home Folder," for example--to the same programs.) Just don't let any one kid you about these machines or OSX and its 6 generations. The Mac OS is infinitely complex and adaptable, more so with each new version, each upgrade. Downloading the wrong programs, trashing the wrong ones, even attempting to delete a few unwanted folders, files and programs can absorb the greater part of a day and eventually a life-time. (I often sense things were much easier, more logical, cut and dry back in the days of OS 9.)

Of the two titles, Pogue still takes the prize.

I have an Intel Mini-Mac, and Snow Leopard is the the most advanced OS it can use.
"Everything is intuitive, once you learn how to do it." applies to Macs, too. Need the book sometimes.

I have had several of these Wiley computer "Bible" books for Windows 95 thru XP and they went slowly downhill but were still pretty good. I have to say that I will not buy any more if they are all as uninformative as this for Mac OS X.
