"I should have waited. The Mac came before the book that I ordered to help with the switch. With the help of friends, I made the switch. Then the book arrived. Switching to Mac: The Missing Manual Leopard Edition by David Pogue is just what I needed to get me moving fast into the wonderful world of Mac. If you are switching to Mac, you absolutely need this book. One of the best features is the suggested replacement apps for those programs that do not have a Mac equivalent, like MS Access."

"Here is what every former Windows user needs to know about using the Macintosh Leopard operating system. The author, a leading Macintosh expert, anticipates all of the questions, problems, challenges, and difficulties that Windows users are likely to encounter, and provides clear and complete solutions. He translates functions, actions, and tools from what the Windows user is familiar with, to their Macintosh counterparts."

"Pogue does an outstanding job of showing exactly how the Mac environment works, and how everything is structured. Then he starts explaining key differences between the PC and Mac versions of your favorite software. He covers Safari (though I'm still partial to Firefox, and would probably run it even on a Mac), Mail, and iChat quite well in Part Three, and parental controls and security in Part Four."

"David writes well, keeps it interesting and amusing, and knows how to explain semi-technical subjects well."

"...this book is ideal for those looking to make the transfer but who are mystified when it comes to knowing what to do. Those with a sense of humour will love the author's witty prose and tongue-in-cheek comments, consistent with the notorious catty banter of the Mac-devoted community. A winning feature of the book is that it includes Windows-equivalent examples, easing fresh convertors into Mac lingo..."
"If you are new to Macintosh, welcome! David Pogue's Switching to the Mac, Leopard Edition is just what you need. Buy it, study it, use it,and tell a friend where you read about it. Another home run, David 5 out of 5 MyMac rating."
