The Quick Truth on This Book 1. Dezember 2012
Von Adrian Pomilio - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm sure you are reading all the other reviews... I will not be that detailed because I don't like long winded reviews (nothing against the others, to each their own).

This book is NOT for the super geeked out OSX peeps. They already know this stuff and probably say the book is missing some rare archaic, once in a lifetime to use feature.

This book IS FOR (imho):
1 - the new mac owner
2 - the well versed mac owner, like me (been on Macs for 5+ years)

First off, if you are buying a Mac for the first time then you really should get THIS book. It will open your eyes and give you a much wider understanding of Mac's capabilities. It will also save you the time, myself and friends of mine, have spent asking "how do I do this...?" This is the ideal companion for new Mac owners. You're not a dummy so forget those books. This is very well written and to the point.

Secondly, if you have been using a Mac you know that you always Google something or wonder how to do another thing. Thats natural, mainly because Mac gives you so many options for doing things. But even flipping through this book you find "eureka" moments. From automation, speech/voice control, or even turning your Mac into an FTP server.

The first reason is obvious, but the second reason is where this book really pays off. Sure, there are a few topics that you may say to yourself "no duh," but it's all the other information that it contains that really lets you stretch the legs on you Mac. Just think how many times you said.."gee I should create an emergency USB drive." Probably never, neither did I. But now I know, and have done that exact task. I have also become inspired to use my current Air and my older Pros to automate a few things.

Look, I buy and read a lot of tech books. Most all of them are programming books, but this is one of the rare times I went for an OS book. I mean, who does that? Just figure it out... well I am very glad I got this book. It is already paying off.

Easy read.
Gives a good foundation
Sparks great ideas

This is NOT a manual, this is a creatively written guide that will help you if you meet my two criteria. If you are an OSX hound, then no... and maybe you should write a book of your own. This book is meant for beginners to Mac - 1 - all the way up to experienced users -8 - (if Ives is a 10 and Gates is a 1).

Love it and I am gifting copies to friends.

The OS X Technology Manual for the Rest of Us 8. Dezember 2012
Von Devin B. King - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
No Starch Press has released "Master Your Mac" by Matt Cone. Matt Cone is a former ghostwriter for some of Apple's most notable instructors and is the founder of

Master Your Mac is a 389 page book is broken down into seven parts with thirty eight chapters filled with projects and tips ranging from the best OS X shortcuts to automation to security to "the cloud" an on to troubleshooting and maintenance.

Master Your Mac is unique in that the author goes beyond what other OS X books offer. Each chapter opens with an introduction, a project goal, and lists the apps to be used to reach that goal. Several chapters feature special sections with steps to modify OS X using the Terminal.

Throughout the book, the author suggests many apps to solve a problem. It was refreshing to see Mr. Cone spotlight little-known, but highly useful, applications like Moom, Find Any File, Viscosity, and LaunchBar.

A word of caution, a few of the applications that are featured in the book have not been updated for one or more years. Exhaust, last updated in February of 2011, and Caffeine, last updated in March of 2010, are examples of two of these programs. Startupizer 2 and Stay Awake are apps that have been recently updated that offer similar functionality. I am nervous to use an application that has not been updated since the release of the current version of OS X.

I am an advanced Macintosh user and I make several OS X and iOS program presentations every year. I found the majority of the tutorials very useful and informative. Mr. Cone's writing style is clear and concise, a joy to read.

Master Your Mac's tag line is "simple ways to tweak, customize, and secure OS X." I feel that Matt Cone has succeeded in simplifying many of the complex components of customizing your OS X experience. The book offers very good mix of quick tips, resource and reference material, and in-depth technical information.

The author does assume that the reader is familiar with OS X and it is not generally written for a newbie or a recent switcher who may be still trying to get comfortable with Apple's latest cat. However, when you are ready to move beyond the basics, or if you are an intermediate or advanced OS X user, Master Your Mac will be a valuable addition to your technology library.

A Great Addition to my Collection of Mac How to Books!!! 21. November 2012
Von T. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a great addition to my collection of Mac how to books. I like this one because it steps over the line into the more technical side of Mac features than most of the Mountain Lion guide books do.

The book is broken down into seven parts. I have listed the parts below along with the chapters they each contain.

34. Repairing Disk Permissions
35. Verifying and Repairing the Hard Disk
36. Making Better File Backups
37. Maintaining a MacBook's Battery
38. Creating an Emergency USB Drive

One of the things I like about the book is the way it is laid out. It has a very comfortable and easy to read format. Each chapter starts with an overview of the topic, the project goal for the chapter, and a What You'll be using section. The author then digs into the details of the topic.

At the beginning of each chapter there is a "What You'll be Using" section. This section lists all the tools the author takes advantage of in the chapter. The tools are not all free open source tools. There are some tools listed that must pay for, but I would rather have the tools that get the job done right, than just partial open source tools. Some books I've read have only used open-source tools and a lot of times they've been limited in their functionality.

The author's writing style makes the topics at hand very easy to understand and makes the book a very easy read. It not only can be read from cover to cover, it also make a great reference.

Some of the chapters that were a pleasant surprise were Turning Your Mac into a Web and FTP Server, Preserving Your Anonymity Online, Encrypting Your Mac's Internet Connection, Creating Your Own Safari Extension, Automating Tasks with AppleScript, and Creating a Bluetooth Proximity Monitor.

The author covers downloading, installing, and configuring MAMP. The author helps you get Apache and MySQL up and running in no time at all.

I love that the author introduces the Tor Browser Bundle and Vidalia Bundle in the Preserving Your Anonymity Online chapter. Not many people know about it. I have used it several time when running through white hat hack attacks during security testing.

This book will stay in my backpack. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take the Mac user skills to the next level.

Perfect for this New Convert 2. Dezember 2012
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I stumbled on this a week after getting my first Mac. So far it has served as a great resource for me and has made the transition from Windows to Mac a bit smoother. I can't say I've read many Mac specific books but this one fits my needs and I really don't think I'll need another. I really have not faults with this at all, the author does a great job writing in a clear style.

This is THE book! 26. Januar 2013
Von D. Baer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've been a Mac user for nearly 30 years and a networking/IT professional for almost 20, and I have read more computer-related books than I can remember. With that in mind, when I say that this book is excellent, I mean it. The fact that I learned not just one, but several things from this book is worth the selling price. Note that I don't know the author and don't receive a penny if you decide to purchase this book.

Back in the day, there was "The Macintosh Bible," and I owned several versions of that title -- the last version was released in 2004 and it really wasn't the same as the "old school" versions. For the past few years, I have been looking for a book worthy of that title and have been largely unsuccessful until now.

This book answers most of the questions I get from my Mac using friends regarding configuration options and specific functionality, and I will be recommending it to all of them as an essential piece of their libraries.

The book is broken into 7 parts: Back to Basics, Boosting Productivity, Automation, Managing Your Life, Internet and Networks, Serious Security, and the ever popular Monitoring, Troubleshooting and Maintenance. Each part has 4-7 chapters in it that cover a specific task related to the topic of the section.

The book can be read straight through -- as I did in order to get an idea of its worth to me -- or you can jump to the specific section that interests you. Both the Table of Contents and the Index are very useful in finding specific information that you seek.

Each chapter is constructed as a scenario in which you would like to perform a specific task. The author provides at least one way to perform the task, including a complete walkthrough, as well as "Additional Ideas" at the end of the chapter if you would like to research a little more. One of the most valuable items to me is that the author includes native tools (part of OS X ) as well as options using Shareware (is that still a term, or am I dating myself?), Freeware, and Commercial software. This is all called out up front in the "What You'll Be Using" section of each chapter. When a third-party piece of software is used, the author provides a URL for more information as well as ranking symbols ($, $$, or $$$) that indicate relative cost of each product.

One of the most enjoyable and useful books I have ever read on Mac OS X. If I could give it 6 stars, I think I would.
