I just made the move from an XP PC to an iMac so I bought this book as a reference. It not only helps with all the questions new users will have but it also answers questions that I didn't know to ask. You may be able to figure out many of the the BIG things on your own but it is always the little things can kill you - unless you have a handy reference guide like this. It is must have book for an old dog like me that needs to learn new tricks on his own. It is a small, but valuable investment that will save you lots of time. Just get it, you won't regret it.

This book is saving my life! I've used PCs ever since they were invented. Really. But I've wanted a Mac for a long time. Recently some dear (and generous) friends gave me a brand new Mac laptop. It's beautiful and fun but it does behave differently than a PC. This book has helped be figure out what to do when my in-bred response isn't the right one! No right click? No problem. Want to find properties of a file? No problem. The book weighs a ton and is huge. I'm slowly getting through it but it's saved me already on numerous occasions. I'm so glad I bought it!

After 20 years on PCs I decided to switch to a Mac and I am very happy with that decision. This book has definitely been a God-send. It is written in a way that anyone can understand. It has helped make my transition go so smoothly. The author has an easy going style laced with a great sense of humor. A lot of my friends and acquaintances have switched to Macs lately and I highly recommended this as a must-have reference.

Great resource!! I tried another book first before I found this one.... What a difference. I couldn't be more impressed. Well organized and very well written, it is the perfect reference for a new Mac user whether or not you have PC experience. The right amount of information, with a great index. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

"Switching to the Mac" is the best book I've read for someone who has been a PC user for many years and is just beginning to learn how to use the Mac. I'm a new Mac owner and bought several books on getting started, and have done a few tutorials, and this book is the most informative by far. I can't think of anything it does not cover. I wish I had come across this book first because it would have been the only book I needed. It's a great reference source and very easy to understand. I would recommend it to all PC-to-Mac converters.

Have had my Mac a month now. Love it. This book has been helpful with one exception. It has no information on the photo application on my new Mac - Apple iPhoto - which was a big thing for me. So I had to buy an additional book for that. I just purchased iPhoto for Dummies (Angelo Micheletti) and it looks good. If I had know before hand that Switching to the Mac was lacking info on iPhoto I might not have purchased it. But it has come in handy and is a good resource as I continue to learn about my Mac.

Mac OS X Snow Leopard Simplified I recently purchased my first Apple computer(Macbook Pro) and needed a handy reference nearby to explore the wealth of functions contained in Snow Leopard...I have been a windows user for my computer life and am not proficient at all with my computer skills. The index leads to easy numbered steps plus wonderful pictures to allow one to accomplish the needed tasks...it is a fun,simplified way to learn. I could not be happier with a reference book

I purchased this book because I have been become a MAC user. This book is very good and covers all aspects of the Mac. Being new to a Mac I found this book very easy to use, plus it has a lot of useful information. Switching from P.C to a Mac has not been hard, due to the information contained in this book. I would recommend this for any new Mac user.
