The book is good, the problem is with me.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
There are a lot of forums and sites dedicated to Macbooks but I've found them difficult to navigate, so having this as a resource has been very helpful. He assumes that you have no previous knowledge using Mac OS, so everything is explained.
If you are a new user for Mac, I strongly recommend to buy this one. I also read two to three Mac materials. This one is my favorite.
