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.
