Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0201353571, Paperback)

Whether you're running an iMac with the latest version of Mac OS or you've just performed a system upgrade on your older machine, you need to understand Mac OS 8.5. This book shows you how to get the most out of your Mac's operating system.

Maria Langer starts with the easy stuff--she shows how to click icons, use menus, and dispose of files by dragging them to the Trash. For that reason, Mac OS 8.5 fits the needs of newcomers to the Mac community. However, she doesn't dwell long on the basics and storms straight ahead through spring-loaded folders, application management, and printing. A large portion of this book explains how to connect a Macintosh running Mac OS 8.5 to the Internet and to LANs. The newest features of the system, including the Sherlock search tool, receive careful coverage.

Mac OS 8.5 features careful design. It's easy to locate the pages that contain the solution to your problem. By turning the book sideways and scanning the tabs on the edges of the pages, you can quickly spot relevant passages. Page design stands out, too--numerous screen shots surrounded by bulleted text nuggets clarify how to get things done in Mac OS 8.5, without requiring you to spend too much time poring over dense prose. --David Wall
