A book written by a dummy for dummies Dec 7 2011
By subduedjoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would give this book minus two stars if I could. It is the worst Dummies book I have ever read. If you are a Windows PC user and need to learn how to use the Mac operating system, do not buy this book. This book is not about that. What this book is about is trying to convince you why Macs are superior to Windows PCs. This book should be titled "Why I hate Windows PCs even though I know so little about them" or "How I rationalize spending twice the amount of money for a Mac." The author seems to think we all are using archaic Windows PC desktops with bulky monitors and old operating systems, and yet he also believes Macs last longer than Windows PCs. Go figure.

At one point in the book, he says, "If your PC is so trashed that the mouse no longer works..." Apparently, he thinks that a Windows PC is trash if the mouse no longer works. Do yourself a favor. Go buy a mouse and save yourself the expense of buying a Mac.

I should have known before I bought this book that it was filled with Apple hype and Windows PC hate. The author's domain for the book is ditchmypc. I have no plans to ditch my Windows PC. I need to use a Mac to write apps for the iPhone. I bought a book about switching to the Mac because I wanted to know the differences between a Mac and a Windows PC. I didn't want a book that would explain about how to use PCs in general because after all a Mac is a PC. I thought a book about switching would save me time.

Great book, its very user friendly. Mac's are intimidating enough, coming from a PC, this book has made moving that much more enjoyable. Would recommend. Good value for the cost.

Preparing to switch Dec 27 2011
By R. Trenkler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I picked up this book in preparation of switching over to Apple from Windows. This book was very informative and provided all the information I needed to make the switch. If you are planning to switch to a Mac I recommend buying this book prior to the switch. You will realize how easy it is.

No Help Dec 31 2012
By Mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the history of computers and really dry reading and a vague explanation of why someone may want a Mac. I ended up using my old PC that freezes constantly because it's still faster and less frustrating than the Mac. The Mac did have a nice backlit keyboard and good quality picture. That's about the extent of it's likability. This book didn't do anything to help me with the actual machine.

Good reading for a "newbie" like myself April 10 2012

It's like another world using a Mac, and I will never go back to the normal PC. This book has been extremely helpful, even though I can maneuver through things very well-I'm happy I purchased this book! The instructions are very clear and precise.
