Chris Seibold is an engineer, writer, and cartoonist residing in Knoxville, Tennessee. As an engineer, he has tackled such diverse processes as powder coating and hot dog casing manufacture. As a writer, he has focused on computing and written for a variety of online and traditional media, including serving as Senior Contributing Editor for the Apple Matters web site and contributing hacks to iPod and iTunes Hacks, with a talent for making the complex accessible to the interested but harried user. As a cartoonist, he has produced both cartoon strips and editorials. Chris also managed to spend some time working producing radio shows relating to sports. As soon as he hits television, the trifecta will be complete. Chris lives with his wife, young son, and what is quite possibly the world's dimmest canine. He has a degree in Physics from the University of Tennessee but has yet to find work involving frictionless inclined planes.

Chapter 2 is provides more information than unsophisticated users need about installing Snow Leopard and migrating data to it.
Chapter 3 is a quick guide to Snow Leopard itself beginning with the Menu bar. Services under the Apple Menu has been redone in Snow Leopard. When you have a new application to drag to the Applications file, just drag it to Applications in the Side Bar. Click and hold on any open application in the Dock to display all the open windows for that application. There is a lot of information that is new in this little book as well as reminders of features I forget to use such as command-tab.
Chapter 4 is a quick guide to troubleshooting the more common problems. Chapter 5 covers what is new and what you want to know about the System Preferences including Sharing. Chapter 6 includes some information about each of the many applications and utilities that come with Snow Leopard. Chapter 7 is about MobileMe which is useful only if you have MobileMe. Chapter 8 is primarily about passwords which I believe is all most people really need to know about Security on a Mac except for using some common sense. The final chapter 9 includes the keyboard commands and how to access the special characters - very useful information in a easy to use format.
This book provides a look at what is new in Leopard and a concise reference for information when you need it. A lot of book in a compact package for a small price.
It's size - packed full of information, yet not overwhelming.
Great reference for those new to the Mac.
Great keyboard shortcut reference for anyone who uses a Mac.
Typo's, and I mean I stopped counting after 50!
Grammatical error's! Enough of them to annoy you!
Technical error's, however nothing not easily figured out on your own.
All in all, it's a great introduction read for anyone new to the Mac!
I would have given it 5-Stars, had it not been for the laziness exhibited by the editors!
