When the last edition of The Macintosh Bible was published Mac OS X was still in its infancy, the full suite of free Mac iLife apps had yet to appear, and the idea of switching from a PC to a Mac was still considered heresy by most Windows aficionados. Obviously, a lot has changed: Here to address those changes is the 9th Edition of the most comprehensive Mac resource on the planet. Offering an expanded chapter on digital media, a new appendix on switching (not just from Windows to Mac OS X but from earlier Mac OS versions as well), an increased focus on the newest (and newly mature) OS X versions, and brand-new interviews with Mac luminaries (at the end of each chapter), this completely revised volume offers something for Mac users of all stripes and skill levels. Leaders of the Mac community address every aspect of Mac use here, packing in hundreds of tips, trivia, sidebars, and other goodies along the way.

Like the Macintosh itself, The Macintosh Bible is a breeze to navigate, is filled with stylish icons to guide the way, and is much more powerful than it appears. From system software to hardware purchases, the "Dirty Dozen" contributors have painstakingly compiled a guide to the computer family that inspires the most devotion.
Good tips, hot features, bad features, and warnings are marked with appropriate icons, as are sections dealing specifically with PowerBook and Power Macintosh features. Advice ranges from the very basic to the more advanced without sacrificing the easy tone of the writing, making this a volume for all levels.
You'll learn how to configure your Mac to avoid potential conflicts, how to manage real and virtual memory, and how to fix common and unusual problems that remain specific to certain models. The book offers great troubleshooting advice and application overviews. All computer tomes should be required to feature an appendix similar to the one in The Macintosh Bible, which outlines steps to avoid eye irritation, back and neck pain, and other computer-related health issues.From the Publisher:
The original and much-imitated Macintosh Bible has undergone a complete rehaul--and returned to its roots. The Macintosh Bible, Eighth Edition is the most comprehensive volume ever, and like the original, was written by a group of Macintosh community leaders, each an expert in his or her subject.
Fully updated to cover Mac OS 9 and X, this eighth edition exhaustively covers the spectrum of Macintosh computing. This all-in-one reference is everything to everyone: Beginners will appreciate the clearly organized, matter-of-fact approach, and veteran Mac users will find new tips, shortcuts, and tidbits of Mac trivia in every chapter. The Mac has changed a lot in the two years since the last edition, and this one fills all the gaps, with sections on the latest iMacs, iBooks, and G4s; iMovie, desktop video, and other multimedia; new developments in the Internet and the Web; USB and FireWire; and more. It's a must-have addition to any Mac library.
