What do you get when you cross a Mac with an iPad? OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Its 200 new features include Mac versions of iPad goodies like Maps, iBooks, and iTunes Radio—but not a single page of instructions. Fortunately, David Pogue is back, with the expertise and humor that have made this the #1 bestselling Mac book for over 11 years straight.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Big-ticket changes. Finder tabs. Finder tags. App Nap. iCloud Keychain. iTunes Radio. Maps. iBooks. Automatic app updating. If Apple wrote it, this book covers it.
  • Nips and tucks. This book demystifies the hundreds of smaller enhancements, too, in all 50 programs that come with the Mac: Safari, Mail, Calendar, Notification Center,Messages, Time Machine…
  • Shortcuts. Meet the tippiest, trickiest Mac book ever written. Undocumented surprises await on every page.
  • Power users. Security, networking, build-your-own Services, file sharing with Windows, even Mac OS X’s Unix chassis—this one witty, expert guide makes it all crystal clear.

There’s something new on practically every page of this edition, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein ausgezeichnetes Handbuch über Apple Mac 29. Mai 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit diesem Buch (in englischer Sprache). I shall continue in English (meine Muttersprache ist holländisch).
I am happily using my iMac since I bought it six years ago. The Missing Manual I bought at the same time turned out to be a very useful reference book. Recently, it helped me to start up a reluctant apparatus.
Now I am considering replacing it by a new one, so I bought the Mavericks version of the manual. Studying it carefully convinced me that buying new iMac is worthwhile. Besides, I found some useful features I had not noticed before, which were already present six years ago!
This well written book, spiced with witty remarks, is thoroughly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First choice for OS X manual 2. Januar 2014
Von Denis Vukosav - Veröffentlicht auf
"OS X Mavericks: The Missing Manual" written by David Pogue is latest edition in "Missing Manual" series that provide excellent and detailed information for all applications and devices that had the good fortune these unofficial guides been issued for their usage.

OS X Mavericks being 10th major update of Apple's Unix-based operating system is the software you cannot purchase on DVD/CD or flash drive - you have only possibility to download it.
This means that the user won't get any printed instructions for its usage, except those you can download (and then print) from the vendor website that describe some of the basic functionalities; or you can turn to help system that lacks examples and any kind of tutorials.
And it's precisely in these areas Missing Manual series of books shines, unburdened by the pressure of information that have to be written in official manuals, offering countless examples, tutorials and how-to tips.

OS X Mavericks MM is intended for those users who are already familiar with OS X operating system on intermediate level, though those who are beginners can also use it thanks to small sidebar articles "Up to Speed" that offers great advices for novice users due to which they'll soon cease to feel like rookies.
If you're seasoned Mac user, there is no need to worry because you can also find it helpful due to similar articles called "Power Users' Clinic" that offer advanced tricks, helpful technical tips and many shortcuts that facilitate your work.

The author divided manual for this great OS in six major chapters:
- first chapter discusses about OS X desktop and all the things you can see on your screen when computer with OS X is turned on
- second chapter theme are the applications of all types you can use on OS X among other things, providing information about their opening, switching and swapping data between them, usage of AppleScript and Automator automation tools, even how to run Windows on your Mac
- third chapter is about the components that make OS X discussing more than 30 System Preferences panels and more than 50 applications in App/Utility folders
- fourth chapter speaks about a bit advanced themes, like networking, screen and file sharing - in few words, everything due to which is Apple father of multitasking and role model that is still unequaled in this area
- fifth chapter speaks about online capabilities of OS X, mostly about Safari browser and Mail application, but also about iCloud services and many ways and protocols of sharing information over the Internet
- final, six chapter speaks about troubleshooting, installation and great list of keyboard shortcuts that would be especially helpful for all those old-school computer experts which for more than 20 years are not separating from their keyboards

David Pogue's "OS X Mavericks" is another great title in "Missing Manual" series, a well-made unofficial guide that offers great examples, walkthroughs, useful tips and behind-the-screen tricks - due to that I can fully recommend it to anyone as a first choice for OS X manual.

2.0 von 5 Sternen This book is NOT about Mavericks but prior OS ... poorly written 23. März 2014
Von John Bell - Veröffentlicht auf
As a 25 year advanced Windows user I got fed up with the morass at Microsoft (Windows 8, virus issues, corporate arrogance-&-spying etc etc) and I jumped onto Apple’s bandwagon. I always read the complete literature on any new software or new OS that I purchase and this brought me to Switching to the Mac, Mavericks Edition, published Feb 2014.

Having read the entire book I feel qualified to review this tome of 750 pp.

By the time I had read 200 pages I had encountered 45+ keyboard shortcuts and/or trackpad gestures that did not work. By page 300 I discovered the problem — I saw screenshots that do not exist in Mavericks. Little, if any, of this book is about Mavericks but is a compilation of prior OS’s (Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion, Lion etc). In the rush to get this book to market and capture marketshare O’Reilly Media, Inc. misnamed this book in order to line their pockets at the expense of unwary Apple users.

The writing is both verbose and ‘muddy’, making it difficult to see the forest for the trees. Additionally, the writing is so vague that I had to birddog everything in this book to check its accuracy and frequently found it incomplete and sometimes incorrect. Every ~ 2-3 pages I left the book to experiment with my MacBook and found inadequacies or outright errors. I found a wealth of information on (especially PC Classes on Line with its outstanding Mac tutorials) as well as Apple dedicated web sites (MacWorld, MacLife etc) and I found Apple users more than generous with their suggestions, shortcuts etc.

This book gives no instructions about the bundled programs (Pages, Numbers & Keynote) nor does it offer suggestions on how to explore Mac related issues. The author mentions [...] - The Missing CD’s. However, I found this of no value being that the “Mavericks” book is not listed in the Missing CD section at O'Reilly Media and exploring those listed (Lion, Leopard etc) found them to be of no value because the information is not searchable.

My best advice to new users of Mac is to seek out classes at your local community college or Apple retail store, or befriend an experienced Mac user who is willing to assist you. But don’t give up because I have found the Mac OS to be more powerful and sophisticated than Windows and is the future of personal computing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome! 22. Januar 2014
Von John A. Suda - Veröffentlicht auf
Awesome. Awesomer. Awesomest! That pretty much describes the quality progression of David Pogue's series of Missing Manuals covering the Apple Macintosh's OS X operating system. He's written over a half dozen of the Manuals and each new one seems to be better than the last.

Mr. Pogue is popularly known as a great explainer and is developing a reputation as a great efficiency expert as well. The latest iteration of the Manuals covers OS X Mavericks (10.9) and is filled with examples, tips, and illustrations of how to be as efficient as possible using a Mac computer, as well as detailing and explaining nearly every feature of the operating system, both documented and undocumented.

I've read (and reviewed) every one of those books and have been delighted to learn dozens of new ways to use the system beyond just learning about the new features of each version of OS X. Pogue details the (usually) several ways to do things but nearly always offers a quicker, easier option, usually keyboard versus mouse-based. (See Appendix D, the Secret Keystroke List for 8 pages of shortcuts.) He has evolved his already Great Template for itemizing and explaining comprehensively the features, components, and technologies of each system towards offering more and more user perspectives, expert insights, and practical tips to being more efficient.

I don't know how much time or effort he puts into developing each book but it must be substantial. How else to find out about all of the undocumented features unless one either gets a cheat sheet from Apple or spends days (weeks? months?) Command, Control, Option, and Shift clicking all over the user interface to discover new and mostly useful things.

Like with the rest of the books, OS X Mavericks covers the Mac desktop elements (folders, windows, menus, accounts, the Spotlight search tool, etc.), the many included programs (Safari, Mail, AppleScript, etc.), the components (system preferences, Notifications, iTunes, etc.), the underlying technologies (firewall and Gatekeeper security, networking, printing, sound and speech, etc.), online issues (Messages, iCloud, etc.), and extras like installations, and troubleshooting, as well as a Windows–Macintosh translator/dictionary for crossover users. It is well organized into 5 parts, 21 chapters, and 4 appendices. There is a well-furnished 30 page index .

The text is well-supplemented on almost every page with grayscale but very clear graphics; screenshots; and sidebar tips, notes, FAQS, Gems in the Rough, and "Power User Clinic” items for more advanced users. This book is not merely a simplified guide to the Mac OS for the casual user or for Windows converts but amply provides discussion on advanced topics like SSH, VPN, and FTP elements for those extending their Macs beyond the usual. The Mac's hidden UNIX components and its terminal function are also covered in some depth as well.

The specific Mavericks' updates and improvements are covered, of course, but within the context of the operating system presentation as a whole. There aren't, after all, a lot of “biggy” updates with OS 10.9 as it is mostly an evolutionary convergence of traditional Mac desktop elements and the iPhone/iPod operating system, IOS. Some apps are shared, the look and some operations are converging, and the two sync more and better, especially using Apple's online iCloud system.

The Missing Manual is one heavyweight reference book filled with content as well as Mr. Pogue's trademark erudition, wit, and eminently practical examples of how to master your machine.

(FTC disclosure (16 CFR Part 255)): The reviewer has accepted a reviewer's copy of this book which is his to keep. He intends to provide an honest, independent, and fair evaluation of the book in all circumstances.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen OS X Mavericks: The Bible and Missing Manual series 11. Januar 2014
Von Bart Christian - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have been Mac user since the Mid 80,s and have purchased every one of the "Bible" and "Missing Manual" series.

I have found the books to be of great value have recommended them to many. This one is not only informative but the sprinkling
of humor here and there lights up the book.

I have skimmed it for content and am in the process of reading specific areas of interest.

One item of great interest to me was the author's promise to make changes to to the book after Apple makes changes to
OS X Mavericks.

5.0 von 5 Sternen David Pogue Never Disappoints 17. Februar 2014
Von Gayle N Steve - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Never upgraded to Lion 'cause I didn't like the reviews. Mountain Lion? Nope. Then my wife got a new machine with Mavericks installed. HAD to upgrade my machine to keep up with changes so I can help her out of minor computer troubles. Still don't like Mavericks, but I can tolerate it having Mr. Pogue's book. I cannot imagine having a Mac without Pogue's book beside me. As for me I'd rather be running Snow Leopard or even Tiger, but we must follow along in Apples' footsteps.
