More About the Author

I'm now writing a free e-mail newsletter called The Useful Geek (website above).

I'm updating my iPod book to cover the latest features, the latest iPods... and the iPhone when it arrives

I'm also writing a book called Do-It-Yourself PC Upgrade Projects, which shows you 24 ways to get more out of your computer -- without buying a new computer. (Or not yet...)

Happy reading -- and computing!

I've been using PCs for almost 20 years, but grew tired of the bugs/viruses and continual glitches. Finally bought a iMac but had never used Apple operating systems. This book is as basic as it gets, and that's what I needed...picture by picture illustrations of various tasks. If that is what you are looking for, this is the book for you. If you have ANY experience with Macs, this is probably too basic for you and you'd be ill-served with the purchase. If you're a baby Mac user like me, this will help you get through the initiation!

When I finally convinced my parents that a mac would solve some of their computer issues, the next step was walking them through the transition of using it. Although I'm a fairly good teacher, I needed something stronger to make it easy for them. Especially at times when I can't be there to show them. This worked perfectly.
To the point that they no longer even needed me to walk them through anything.

Rather than just writing out how to do something, every step shows a photo of what your computer monitor will look like when you do and WHERE you are supposed to click on something. This saves so much time looking for certain buttons, or clicking on the wrong thing. It walks you through all you need to know to get working on an imac, no matter what experience you have had before.

Whether buying it as a guide to teach yourself, as a tool to teach someone else all the really important things you need to know, or even as a instructor for the novice to use themselves, this was a really useful guide...my dad said it was like the instruction model that should have come with the computer to start.

I was new to Apple iMac and after seeing the For Dummies reviews, I decided on this book and I'm really glad I did. The text is so easy to understand and they use photos of what the screen will look like when performing the task being discussed. I thought it was very comprehensive and very helpful.

I have recently started using a Mac having been a PC user for many years and although I found most things intuitive, I kept running into the occasional problem and needed help which is why I purchased this book. At first glance I must admit I thought it was too basic, but I could not have been more wrong. It is very easy to follow and understand and makes learning how to get the most from my Mac a fast process. Would strongly recommend this book to anyone starting out with a Mac, or moving from a PC. A great reference guide and something my wife who has also switched to a Mac, never leaves far from her side.

The Teach Yourself books are great. Being a PC person I needed some guidelines for my new iMac. This book provided me with tips and guidelines that I needed to make myself more proficient on the iMac. The book provides an easy and sensible way to get comfortable with this new piece of equipment. Kudos to the publishers and the people who created this.

Buy the time the book arrived, I had pretty much covered most of the chapters by just exploring the tutorials and help files on my new IMac. I've been a PC user for 20 years and really there isn't much difference between the XP and Mac application software. I was hoping for something more in the area of the features and files of the OS X operating system. This book seems to explain the start up, software and organization of the your files (something that is really simple and thoroughly explained on the IMac). This book would be helpful to a first time computer user BEFORE they start up the Mac the first time. Anybody have and suggestion on a more detailed operating system book the have tried?

We have recently made the change from a Windows based PC to an iMac. This book gives a basic insight as to how to use the iMac. The text is perfectly clear and the photographs add just that extra that you sometimes need. I can surely recommend it to 60+ users as we are.
