Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The popular system software for the resurgent Macintosh platform is Mac OS 9, which includes over 50 new features. Among them are a searching program that finds not just files, but even web pages and words inside files; a multiple-users feature that stores a separate desktop for each user; and one-click file encryption. Despite its long list of enhancements, however, Apple ships Mac OS 9 without one of the most important features of all: a manual.Pogue Press/O'Reilly comes to the rescue with Mac OS 9: The Missing Manual. Award-winning author David Pogue brings his humor and expertise to Mac OS 9 for the first time in this lucid, impeccably written guide. The book includes:

  • Getting started. The book's early chapters cover using menus, finding lost files, reducing window clutter, and interior-decorating the screen.
  • Figuring out what's what. A complete guide, Mac OS 9:The Missing Manual explains the purpose of every single software crumb in the System Folder, the A menu, and even the Apple Extras folder.
  • Mastering networks. Learn how to connect Macs together--and even dial in to your home Mac from the road.
  • Surviving the hordes. The new Multiple Users feature protects the Mac from mischievous (or clueless) kids or coworkers.
  • Flying the Net. If Apple calls Mac OS 9 "your Internet copilot," then this book is the flight manual. It covers Sherlock 2, which searches the Internet; Mac OS 9's self- updating software feature; and Personal Web Sharing.
Consultants and home-office workers will enjoy the book's step-by-step guides to setting up small networks. Teachers and administrators will get great mileage from the tutorials on using Mac OS 9's new Multiple Users control panel. And almost everyone will benefit from the book's coverage of Mac OS 9's speech-recognition, color printing, digital video, and self-updating software features.Along the way, Pogue communicates the joy of using the little shortcuts, drag-and-drop surprises, and elegant design touches that make the Mac the most passionately championed computer in the world.Above all, Mac OS 9:The Missing Manual offers warm, witty, jargon-free writing, with enough patience for the novice and enough depth for the power user. The book bursts with the shortcuts, surprises, and design touches that make the Mac the most passionately championed computer in the world.

Book News Annotation:

Provides clearer, more personable, and better written instructions than usual for making sense of Mac OS 9, from such basics as using menus and reducing window clutter to more advanced topics such as learning how to connect Macs together and the Mac OS 9's self-updating software feature.

About the Missing Manual series: Microsoft does it. Apple does it. Adobe, Netscape, and FileMaker do it. Almost every major software company, in fact, sells increasingly sophisticated software without a printed manual. To cut costs and save production time, today's software companies don't offer physical instruction manuals at all. Instead, you're expected to learn these complex programs by reading electronic help screens. One technical writer finally became inspired enough to do something about the problem. David Pogue, author of the bestselling PalmPilot: The Ultimate Guide, has teamed with O'Reilly to launch a new imprint, Pogue Press, dedicated to producing beautifully written manuals for popular consumer software and hardware products. O'Reilly/Pogue Press is pleased to introduce its new line: the Missing Manual Series.
