I been using MacBook for about 5 years but have been learning on a slow curve. This book is for the beginner and for someone like me who knows how to do many things but could be doing a lot more with some guidance. I am very pleased with this book and am learning all sorts of shortcuts as well as new information. It is helping me to understand my computer and it's applications. I recommend this book for others who want to learn the basics and get more out of their MacBook.

I purchased my first Apple computer, a MacBook, last fall. This book saved my life. It got me over the first learning curve with minimal reading. It was actually the second book I bought. The first was too detailed and at least three times as long. I recommend highly for new MacBook users.
