I was looking for a book that was for a total beginner with Mac Book Air. There wasn't anything in the book that helped me with the simplest tasks. I am now trying to find another beginner book for MacBook Air.

Good content - not an exhaustive work but enough to get you off to a real good start. Very easy to follow. If you are new to Apple products and the Air is your first machine - this book is a good resource.
