I've got to say, that the title really got me interested. I've had my iMac for about 8 months, and consider myself a beginner. That said, I found out things about the Mac that I never knew; including many keystrokes. To me, the book was worth 10 times what I paid. I would definitely suggest this book to ANYONE with a mac!

I was curious to find out what version(s) of Mac OS X this document applies to, and nowhere can I find out! Not on macworld.com, not on amazon.com, not within the document itself. It's dated from April 2011.

This actually matters because the first thing I wanted to do, once I decided I wanted to keep it, was do a "File, Save As" from within Preview (the built-in Mac app that opens most PDFs) to save it somewhere I could find it again. Now, Preview in Lion has fewer options than Preview in Snow Leopard. Anyhoo, the first thing I wanted to do with this document, I couldn't do! Second was to find the file location using Spotlight. So, again within the document, I did Cmd-F (for find), and typed in spotlight. It did not work. Turns out, each page is an image, not text, so I can't search this handy guide. (Googling, I found that Cmd-clicking the item in Spotlight finds its location.)

This PDF lacks a table of contents. That's a thing that PDFs have had since the Year One.

I dunno. It's hard to say which steps are "truly beginning" and which are not. But there's nothing in here about turning on the firewall, how when you copy one folder to another existing folder, Mac OS X wipes out the entire contents of the existing folder ("replaces all of them"), how to check the sharing settings in System Preferences, iChat, iPhoto, and iTunes.

So, this doc seems rather scattershot to me.

This guide provides a few helpful tips, but is largely too superficial for a competent computer user. A number of the tips assume knowledge of the various Mac options that a new user may not have. Moderately useful only.

For a first time user I discovered most of the things taught in this book.
As a beginner I would have loved to learn a bit more than what I would have discovered intuitively.

Nonetheless thanks for the efforts for publishing this book.

I mistakenly purchased this instead of the second edition. It's a pretty good ebook, however, very little of it is relevant with the latest editions of OS X

This book contains very basic and beginner concepts and tips. This book is not for the intermediate or advanced users.

I have several books on the use and maintenance of Mac computers.
But I bought this just in case this one covers issues not contained in the books I have.

In the end, I concluded that this purchase wasn't necessary in my case.

Still, if you are looking for something short, this one might suit your needs.

Just read a few pages from this book's preview.

This is written for the person who's afraid that their new Mac is more complicated than it is (to operate). They could have saved us all a lot of money and spoke on the topics of the "Finder" and "Spotlight" and let the rest go.
