about

Good computer books make assumptions about the reader: what they do and don#151;t know when they pick up the book, and what they want to know when they put it down. For each reader this could be very different; therefore, a book that suits one person may not be the best for another.Mac OS X Leopard: Beyond the Manualmakes some assumptions too, ones that tend to differ from other Mac OS X books.

First of all, we assume that you have used a computer in that past: that you know how to use a mouse and you know the proper place to stick a DVD to get it to play in your computer. We won#151;t be showing you these things. (We will, however, demonstrate to our Mac converts how to "right click" on a trackpad with only one button!).

Second, we assume you know what you want to do with your computer. We won't waste your time showing you specifically, step–by–step how to order a pizza from Pizza Galaxy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with Safari (though, when you#151;re done with this book we think you#151;ll be able to do this just fine... if such a place exists, anyway).

Finally, we assume that you are a reasonably intelligent person who realizes the value of such phrases as "Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" and can imagine how that might apply to a computer book.

If this sounds like you, then we think you'll find this book rewarding.

Inside you will find everything you need to get up to speed with Mac OS X Leopard including:

  • Using the standard included Leopard applications including Mail, Safari, Preview, and more
  • Taking advantage of the Darwin subsystem in Leopard
  • Learning all the ins and outs of the Finder and Leopards improved interface
  • Administering your computer for yourself and for others
  • Working with other computers and operating systems from you Mac
  • Configuring the network to take full advantage of the powerful networking capabilities in Leopard
  • Working with add on devices via USB,Firewire, and Bluetooth
  • Effectively implementing data backup, recovery and security
  • Getting started with OS X development in Leopard
