  1. Get a Mac? Gotta have Pogue! Personally, I hate change. Once I get familiar with an OS, I usually go kicking and screaming to the next one. Such was the case when I “Lionized.” There were enough changes in it for a reasonably steep learning curve and I haven’t got time to waste plodding uphill, so I got some “Pogue-Power” to help me get up that slope. Been using his Missing Manual series since Tiger and have found them greatly useful and a great accompaniment to a new OS. The series title is apt… Missing Manual is right…

  2. Pogue’s latest Mac OS X book is a “Slam Dunk”! This is a fantastic and thorough book on the latest Mac OS. Be forewarned, that to get the most from this wonderful work, you should digest it in small chunks. David Pogue’s writing style is easy to read and he combines a nice (but not overdone) set of screen shots. Combine these elements with his sense of humor and bits of the Mac OS history, and you have both a very readable document, but also an excellent reference book. I have recommended this book to many Mac Users, of all skill…
