"for the intuitive and serious Macintosh user" --Boardwatch, Nov 2000

"This is as comprehensive a reference as can be imagined, yet one that is comfortably accessible both to the experienced power-user or to the beginner, or rather, to the beginning power-user. Material is covered in a straight- forward, non-intimidating style that uses excellent and copius screen shots to insure that the explanations can be followed and understood...Ms. Lewis's writing style is concise, clear, admirably organized, while technical enough to satisfy the hoary power user and not so technical as to confound the new user. If you use your Mac, use this book." --Bob Rivkin, Maryland Apple Corps. January 2001

"very helpful and certainly worth the list price of $24.95." --Ann Marie Sanfilippo, Mouse Bytes, December 2000 "Designed for serious Mac OS users, Mac OS in a Nutshell is a new comprehensive reference book that systematically unveils little-known details of the operating system in a consistent format. It covers almost every command and utility, Internet configurations, and clever ways to do familiar and not-so-familiar tasks." --Kris Newby, Apple Developers News, July 2000

"This well-written book covers all aspects of the Mac operating system from beginner to advanced. Concepts are explained very clearly and illustrated by easy to follow diagrams. Ideas are easy to understand for beginners and make a good review for users of all levels. Interspersed with the old basics is some updated newer material such as contextual menus and spring-loaded windows. Behind the basics are often some explanations of how things work on a deeper level. The history behind some parts of the OS help it to make more sense. Nuggets of less well known information are thus found as pleasant surprises." --Judy Haber, Fresno Mac Users Group, September 2000

"This book is useful for experienced Mac users, but is especially handy for those new to the operating system." --ComputerWorld Canada, August 11, 2000
