I’ll make a wild guess: Mac isn’t the first operating system you’ve used. In fact, if you are like most people, you are probably a Windows person. But you’ve heard a lot of good things about Mac’s, it works alongside your phone, and it “Just works”—so you have decided to make the switch.
It’s not the most complicated operating system—in fact, it’s simpler than Windows once you dig into it a little bit and start using it. But there is still a learning curve.
This book was written with Window users in mind. I’ll walk you through how to use it, but also compare it to Windows—so if there’s a feature you're used to in Windows, I’ll show you where that same feature is in MacOS.
It’s not a comprehensive guide, as you have probably noted by the number of pages. It’s meant to be a guide that gets you up and running as quickly as possible. If you are looking for something that teaches you all about Unix command prompts in Terminal, then there are plenty of heftier books out there that are also excellent for doorstops. This book is for people who just want to know how the darn thing works so they can start using it!
I purposely have done my best to make this handbook a little more casual and fun then what you expect from most Mac OS manuals. Mac OS is an operating system, and any guide you read should be an equally fun read.
This book is based off the bestselling Mac “The Ridiculously Simple Guide to MacBook, iMac, and Mac Mini.”
Are you ready to start enjoying the new Mac OS? Then let’s get started!
