Author David Pogue emphasizes that MacWorld Mac Secrets is not for beginners or power users, but for "everybody in the middle." Instead of detailing how to do obscure tasks that only a few will want to know, Pogue divulges secrets and shortcuts that will help and intrigue the everyday Mac user.

You won't find any information on Systems 7 and 7.1 in the fifth edition of this guide; you'll have to refer back to the fourth edition for that information. However, this book does feature extensive coverage of OS 8.5 (and new secrets for OS 8 and 8.1), the iMac, digital cameras, AppleScript, and other updated topics. The included CD-ROM contains the entire printed version of the book in a searchable format, plus hundreds of dollars worth of commercial software--such as MacLinkPlus, OneClick, and ColorIt--for no extra cost.

This guide begins by identifying what all the System software that came with your Mac does and tells you what you need to keep and what you can delete. The next section covers the inner workings of the Mac and provides a model-by-model outline of what the older Macs are now worth and how they can be upgraded for maximum performance. The third section will probably be the most helpful to the majority of users: it shares all of the shortcuts and secrets within common Mac applications. A new section of this volume covers Internet-related issues such as modems, browsers, and e-mail. MacWorld Mac Secrets closes with definitions of all the possible attachments for your Mac and instructions on how to install them. An appendix lists all of the software on the companion CD-ROM and explains what it does. This serves as a fine reference book for the dedicated Mac user. --Cristina Vaamonde
