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.
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.
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.

I've tried to get into this book several times, but I always end being bored within a minute of two. Maybe it's just too involved for my style of computing.Published 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
