"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."

"Pogue, the New York Times computer columnist, is among the world's best explainers."
-- , co-founder of Wired
"David Pogue has written about Windows, and is also a Windows user, and this comes through clearly in his book. His familiarity with both operating systems is patent; he is thorough and precise in presenting the differences, and his coverage of Mac OS X is more than sufficient for any switcher who needs to get a handle on the Mac."
"I have reviewed quite a number of Missing Manual books and I am always impressed with them. David Pogue is a Mac master and the depth of his knowledge shines through."

--Kirk McElhearn, About This Particular Macintosh, July 2003
"Nothing is overlooked in comparing Win/Mac parts, functions, commands and components, including a 'Where Did It Go?' dictionary for the Alt Key-deprived. Extensive guides to system preferences and all the iApps and utilities that come bundled with your new machine will leave separation anxiety behind."
--Tony Reveaux, "Film/Tape World," May 2003
"'Switching to the Mac' is in Pogue's highly readable style, which makes it both a book to read through (then go and try) and one of those useful books that stays beside the computer as a handy reference."
--Graham K Rogers, "Bangkok Post," May 6, 2003
"an excellent coverage and just what a Switcher would need. In fact it could be subtitled--The Switchers Bible."
--Roger Bernau, ACT Apple Users Group, June 2003
"...as a manual for Windows to Mac switchers, it?s hard to imagine a better resource. David Pogue never disappoints, and his witty, conversational, and jargon-free writing style makes reading the material a pleasure. If you are making the transition from Windows to the Mac, the $24.95 will be well spent. A full, 5-A Applelinks rating."
--Charles Moore, Applelinks, April 11, 2003
"I would rather go without food for three days than miss any of the Missing Manual books."
--Al Fasodt of "The Post-Standard," June 5, 2003
