"When I first encountered the "For Starters" books, I wondered why users would purchase them. For a little more money they could get the whole enchilada in the parent book. But I was wrong. They are very easy to read, provide all the basics and steer clear of those tools most users never touch."
-- Sam Gardner, Polk Computer User Group

"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."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"There are a lot of good books, but I keep returning to the Missing Manual series because they are inexpensive, easy to read and full of cool tricks and tips."
-- Bob Brooks, The South Bay Apple Mac User Group

"The Missing Manual series is simply the most intelligent and usable series of guidebooks..."
-- Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired

"The books generally are nicely written, easy to read, flow logically, and have a wealth of information to get you up to speed quickly – or at least as fast as you can read. I am a strong proponent of these types of manuals since I find that the time spent in reading them to be more productive than learning to use a software program by trial-and-error or going through the built-in Help files or other online aids."
-- Ted Littman, Orange Bytes, North Orange County Computer Club

"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."
