For example the extremely useful "undo" a Control Z on a Windows machine. No clue how to do this on a Mac. Not mentioned in the index. Finally found buried in an appendix.
I looked again, just to see if I was being to hard on this book. I think not. The first chapter has a lot about automation of tasks (complex) and illustrates how it looks on the authors two monitors.
Very flashy. Maybe really at a "Genius" level, but not very practical for me.
Tomorrow I will take the book back.
