Excellent Niche book

  • Jan 27, 2002
When Ms. Langer authored the Visual Quick Start Guide to Mac OS X, I wondered who the audience would be. It is a very, very basic book. Now she offeres this book for the intermediate to advanced Mac OS X user and nicely fills out her coverage of the new OS. This book is current with version X.1 and offers a nice introduction to the deeper and darker corners of OS X's unix underpinnings. There is a good introduction to the command line and the most current tutorial on paper of AppleScript for OS X. Good stuff. She also covers the obscure tools in the utilities directory of the Application folder. This book won't make you a Unix guru but will open the door to that world if you want to go there. There is also enough (but concise) of a rehash of her previous book to enable the old style mac power user to start right in.
