Publisher Comments:

Visual QuickStart Guides, designed in an attractive tutorial and reference format, are the quickest, easiest, and most thorough way to learn applications, tasks, and technologies. The Visual QuickStart Guides are a smart choice and guide the learner in a friendly and respectful tone. Visually presented with copious screenshots, the focused discussions by topic and tasks make learning a breeze and quickly take you to exactly what you want to learn.

The latest update of this best-selling Visual QuickStart Guide will have you up and running in no time with Mac OS X Lion. Respected, best-selling author Maria Langer will take you through all of Mac OS X Lion's groundbreaking capabilities and new features including Multi-Touch Gestures, Launchpad, Mission Control, the App Store, Mail, and much more. With plenty of screenshots to clearly illustrate techniques, this effective tutorial and reference is packed with practical information for people who want to jump in and start working and playing with OS X Lion.

As a companion to this book, Peachpit offers more than an hour of short, task-based videos that will help you master Mac OS X Lion’s top features and techniques; instead of just reading about how to use a tool, you can watch it in action. It’s a great way to learn all the basics and some of the newer or more complex features of the operating system. Log on to the Peachpit site at www.peachpit.com/register to register your book, and you’ll find a free streaming sample; purchasing the rest of the material is quick and easy.
