Every task is presented step-by-step, using carefully annotated, full-color screenshots, all numbered so there's no chance of getting lost of confused. Drawing on 25 years of Mac experience, Ray presents scores of helpful tips and tidbits - as well as "It's Not All Good" sidebars that identify bugs or issues readers may encounter, and offer quick, effective solutions. With My MacBook 2/e, there's no wading through paragraphs of theory to get usable answers - and you don't have to sift through beginner-level computing skills to find the sophisticated information you really need.

The only visual guide to the MacBook written from the ground up for the new Mac OS X operating system, My MacBook 2/e reflects the tasks today's Mac users want to perform, and the problems today's Mac users need to solve.
