Sad Macs, Bombs, and other Disasters (4th Edition)

Amazon Order (or just read more about) Sad Macs, Bombs, and other Disasters (4th Edition)  from Amazon.com

The back cover blurb for this says "Used by Apple's technical support staff". I could believe that, but I'll bet hard cash they aren't using it to support OS X.

Not that there is no OS X information here; there is some. But there isn't much, and what little there is was obviously written when it had just come out. There is a fair amount of Mac specific hardware info here that of course could be useful to OS X users. But the main focus of this is pre OS X software troubleshooting.

No doubt the next edition will be more valuable, or perhaps a separate OS X edition would be the way to handle this. I certainly cannot recommend this edition to OS X users.

Got something to add? Send me email.
