Book News Annotation:

Feiler, an independent database consultant for small businesses and non-profit organizations, thoroughly explains the Bento database software for Mac applications. The author offers a step-by-step application of Bento's templates and themes, showing how the application can be implemented by Mac users to manage small projects, create storyboards, import and export libraries and utilize the Smart Collections feature. Several print screens and charts are used to make the instructions as clear as possible. An additional chapter is included to discuss Bento "quickies," offering users a quick tutorial on how to use Bento to store and organize jokes, recipes, news clippings and shopping sources.
