The Missing Manual: Mac OSX Leopard Edition

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

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.

Basic happened to be on a GE timesharing system that was done by Dartmouth, and when GE decided to franchise that, it started spreading Basic around just because it was there, not because it had any intrinsic merits whatsoever. (Alan Kay)
