Book Description: With over 500,000 copies in print, The Little Mac Book is one of the best-selling guides for Macintosh beginners of all time. This "little" book with the big content covers the essentials of operating a Mac using a friendly tone that doesn't get mired down in the details. The Little Mac Book is considered required reading for all new Mac users, and it's a key reference for any Mac user's bookshelf. For the fifth edition, Robin has completely updated the book to cover all the new features of Mac OS 8. Beginners learn the Mac basics, from starting up and shutting down to using the mouse to working with the Finder, menus, folders, and icons. As their familiarity with the Mac grows, users learn to work with fonts, the System Folder, control panels, and more. All users will appreciate the coverage of the new interface and the all new Internet and intranet capabilities. From its detailed TOC to its extensive (and much praised) index and all the wonderful material in between, The Little Mac Book, Fifth Edition, is a must-have for Mac newcomers, Robin Williams' fans, and any veteran Mac users who want to get up to speed with OS 8.
