However, it may be kind of pricey, but I believe this book is a must to be able to learn about and access all the great features Lion has to offer. I intend to keep my iMac with Lion for a long time -- maybe 3 years or more. I can thumb through this book and there are features you may never have heard of. Why not use a book and a computer to their fullest?
It's a very big book, much like the Holy Bible. However, much like the Bible it is difficult to absorb straight through. The best way to use this book is like a reference manual. If you want to do something with your Mac but you're not sure how to do it or if OS X Lion can do it, this desk reference will help you out.
What it lacks in compactness it makes up for in information. It's not for advanced users. This is a very rudimentary Lion for Dummies kind of manual.
I recommend this purchase to users looking to switch to Mac and have no idea how to use the things.
i can see some areas where this could get some people in trouble but still a great book
