Macintosh...The Naked Truth is definitely not another Mac how-to book; it's a mass-market, personality book about a computer platform and the people who love it, and the love/hate relationship they have with Apple. It's about what you feel, how you're treated (and mistreated), and what it's really like living life in the computing minority. The book, based upon the author's hugely popular magazine column, takes a humorous, evangelical look at Apple Computer and what it's like to be a Macintosh user living in a PC-dominated world. The success of Kelby's column lies in the fact that although it makes serious points about Apple's shortcomings, and what it's really like being a Mac user, it presents them in a humorous, often sarcastic, and occasionally sophomoric way that Mac users love. It's brash, unapologetic, insightful, controversial, outspoken, and often hilarious, peppered with 100% Macintosh attitude. Although it pokes light-hearted fun at everyone from Apple CEO Steve Jobs to the PC users manning the Apple section of CompUSA, each chapter contains an underlying message of Apple evangelism, and it can often be as inspiring as it is funny.

I took a Mac for a test drive and found it to be a lot of fun (has a pc EVER been fun outside of the games?) and decided to take the plunge and have no regrets. And yes, Kelby is right about the problems but IÕll gladly take my current Mac problems over the pc problems any day.
Kelby's book is a keeper. His humor is sophomoric and he doesn't apologize for it. But scattered with the jokes is a lot of great information. His descriptions convinced me that for my home computer I could concentrate of the software (MS Office is mostly used) and not constantly worry about the computer itself. His book is a revelation to financial professionals like myself in that Macs are now viable and not just for artsy designer types. A buyer shouldnÕt listen to any pc userÕs opinion of Apple products who hasnÕt test driven a Mac. Yes, MS Office is better on a Mac and my home network with another pc works fine.
Like the friendlyzone reviewer, I don't think I could have made the switch as easy without this book. And I have an easy guide to rebut those of my friends who refuse to believe I've made an intelligent purchase. The book is easy and fun to read and it helped keep my eyes open to what I was getting.
Kelby explains the difference between the Mac and PC user. He write convincingly about why the Mac is better and why Apple doesn't have the market share of the PC. After all, how many companies make Windows machines...how many have already gone out of business ? The Mac even with 3% of the market share stays in business through thick and thin...for similiar reasons that Mercedes-Benz with less then 1% of the automobile market share also stays in business.
Kelby points out that Mac people are proud to display the Apple logo...ever see a Windows logo on the back of a car? He explains the pros and cons of owning a Mac and how the cons aren't quite as bad as they seem...The Apple section of CompUSA isn't the only place to find software and hardware for the Mac in that store !
Kelby also explains why the Mac doesn't have the outrageous amount of software available as do the Windows machines. Curious as to why? Quality and tight specifications are a start. Programming for the Mac is tedious and must pass Apples quality control and user specifications. This is the reason applications work better on a Mac.
This book is as much fun to read as the Mac is to use !
Warning, reading this book may very well entice you to consider a Macintosh the next time you are buying a computer.
This is a fun, tongue-in-cheek book about a Mac users life in a PC world. I would recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor. Of course, as Scott would say that might leave most PC users off the list. Great fun! Thanks Scott!
