Unlike Mac OS X Leopard Pocket Guide, this is the book you really should buy if you are running Leopard. At almost 900 pages, this is wonderfully complete; everything you need to know, everything you should know, and more.

I was impressed by how much I learned in just the first hundred pages or so - and I don't mean "that's cute but I'd never use it" but useful, "yes, I need to remember that!" stuff. The rest of the book didn't disappoint either. I can't say that I learned something in every chapter, but I never stopped picking things up throughout.

I was happy to see a comprehensive Terminal/Unix chapter. At 46 pages, of course it is only an introduction, but it was well done and I think it did a good job selling the reluctant user on why this is both important and useful. It was also good to see extensive attention given to interacting with Windows (and vice versa).

I really think it is unlikely that anyone will be disappointed by this. There's no CDROM, but you can find all the referenced software at http://missingmanuals.com/cds/macxleopardmm/, plus extra appendixes not found in the book.

The danger of computers becoming like humans is not as great as the danger of humans becoming like computers. (Konrad Zuse)

Don't blame me for the fact that competent programming, as I view it as an intellectual possibility, will be too difficult for "the average programmer" — you must not fall into the trap of rejecting a surgical technique because it is beyond the capabilities of the barber in his shop around the corner. (Edsger W. Dijkstra)
