There should be an image here!If you’re planning to give a new Mac to a loved one, or gift yourself, be sure to pick up Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual. Just in time for the holidays, David’s timely new book offers honest, straightforward, and fun-to-read instructions on all things Leopard, detailing what’s hot, and what’s not.

“With the Mac’s market share at 8 percent and climbing, it’s a serious player with a serious following, especially among Windows switchers and first-timers,” says Pogue. “The world needs a single, complete, reliable resource to be the Leopard bible.” And this is it.

Pogue’s latest Missing Manual is written for advanced-beginner or intermediate Mac fans, says the bestselling author. “But if you’re a Mac first-timer, miniature sidebar articles called Up to Speed provide the introductory information you need to understand the topic at hand. If you’re a Mac veteran, on the other hand, similar shaded boxes called Power Users’ Clinic offer more technical tips, tricks, and shortcuts.”

Indeed, “Apple says that Leopard has over 300 features — but not all of them are exactly earth-shattering (new Word of the Day screen saver, anyone?),” adds Pogue. “Meanwhile, some of the others are staggeringly under-documented (especially the totally gutted networking system); somebody’s got to slog through them and make sense of them for everyday Mac fans!”

With this new Missing Manual, you can count on learning how to use all of Leopard’s new features including the Time Machine, Boot Camp, and File Stacks. There’s something new on practically every page, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. And here, as a bonus, David gives you a sneak peak, five of his favorite Leopard tips. Just click here to see it.

For everyone who plans to use Leopard and hopes to take advantage of everything the software offers, David Pogue’s latest Missing Manual makes it possible.
