Summary

With Leopard, Apple has unleashed the greatest version of Mac OS X yet, and David Pogue is back with another meticulous "Missing Manual" to cover the operating system with a wealth of detail. The new Mac OS X 10.5, better known as Leopard, is faster than its predecessors, but nothing's too fast for Pogue and this "Missing Manual". It's just one of reasons this is the most popular computer book of all time. "Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, Leopard Edition" is the authoritative book for Mac users of all technical levels and experience. If you're new to the Mac, this book gives you a crystal-clear, jargon-free introduction to the Dock, the Mac OS X folder structure, and the Mail application.
