"Learn Mac the Very Easy Way" - by Gregory West on 14-MAY-2012
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
As a former Mac instructor at Lambton College, I must say this book is perfect for anyone wanting to learn about Lion operating system on an Apple computer. As well, this book is an excellent refresher for those who have been using a Mac for a while.

With 284 pages, full of large color graphics exactly as they would appear on your Mac, your journey into the world of Apple computers is made simple.

Each chapter takes you through every step to learn all about your Mac. You begin with an extensive tour of the the desktop, leaving nothing unturned. Files and folders on a Mac are much easier managed in the second chapter along with some great tips. Mac Mail goes from start to finish, including how to create a "smart" mailbox.

One of my favourite chapters, "LIVING ONLINE" leaves no guessing in the 'how to' department. Find out how to use LION's new FACE TIME, giving presentations with iChat, applying special video effects, filling our online forms and so much more.

This book will become your sidekick as you learn the world of Lion and make your Mac adventure the best it can be.
