This is the most useful book on Lion I have found after 7 months on a new macbook pro. I have read many of the other intermediate level lion books and found them wanting. Ray's Lion covers the useful stuff without losing you in detail, humorous side journeys, rush-to-press errors, or leaving out essentials. If I upgrade to Mountain Lion in 6 months, I will buy Ray's book on that.

Other os x books that have helped me switch back from Windows are: Iwork 09 portable genius for Pages and Numbers iWork '09 Portable Genius; Iphoto 11 missing manual (but I am buying Jim Heid's iphoto 11 for review) iPhoto '11: The Macintosh iLife Guide to using iPhoto with OS X Lion and iCloud; ipod missing manual which covers the touch.

I need books that accurately cover what most users NEED to know for effective use. Anything else is fluff or dangerous errors.

I must say that I absolutely love this book. I recently purchased a MacBook laptop, and I wasn't sure if I was using it to its full potential. After reading this book, I feel very confident in navigating my way through my MacBook and its operating systems. I had the option of buying this book, or MacBook for Dummies. The MacBook for Dummies was way too bulky, it contained a lot of unnecessary information that was of no importance to me, and was not in color. The My MacBook Lion Edition contained easy to follow instructions, in color, and is small enough for me to carry in my bag. I also like to have my MacBook open and on while I read through the book, so I can get a more "hands-on experience." I would definitely recommend this book!

I was looking for a read that would help me make a smooth transition from a PC to a Mac. This book provided me with how to do compared to how I use to do. The information was easy to follow and was well written. The information was provided in a format that used illustrations and examples which made it much easier to follow. Very newbie friendly and made things easier for the newcomer to the Mac World.

My son gave me a Mac laptop and this book has been so valuable to me to help me get around on my Mac.
