"A new edition of David Pogue's Mac OS X: The Missing Manual is the most anticipated Mac book of any year when there’s a new Mac OS version release. From the time of the first edition's initial publication in 2002, OS X: TMM has been the gold standard of OS X books, indeed the best-selling computer book overall since 2007, truly living up to its subtitle: “The Book That Should Have Been In The Box,” and then some. I’ve maintained throughout that this is the OS X book to have if you’re only having one, and the seventh edition, Mac OS X Lion: The Missing Manual, gives me no reason to alter that assessment. "
-- Charles Moore, MacPrices.net

"This book is perfect for newcomers and veterans. The reader gets a crystal-clear, jargon-free introduction to the Dock, the Mac OS X folder structure, Safari, Mail, and iCloud. You can learn how to use key new features such as full-screen apps, Mission Control, the new Mac App Store, Launchpad, Resume, Auto Save, Versions, AirDrop, and more. Power users can learn how to set up a network, make a Lion flash drive, and even learn the basics of Lion's underlying Unix. There's something new on practically every page of this new edition, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. Apple's brought a new cat to town, and “Mac OS X Lion: The Missing Manual” is one of the best ways to tame it."

"Pogue is a master of simplifying very complex technological concepts with a humorous and unique style of his own.... The books is full of undocumented surprises that are sure to delight the reader and propel them to become a Mac power user."
