Book Review: The OS X Mountain Lion Pocket Guide


If you are already familiar with the Mac but want to know the key features in order to maximize your usage of this new cat, this is a great book for you. The OS X Mountain Lion Pocket Guide covers those functions you are most likely going to use and may not be as intuitive as they seem
Missing from this book is handholding and screenshots as this is all meat without any fat weighing the book down. The table of contents helps the reader hone in on the topics and functions they will be most interested in without long-winded explanations. While all of Mountain Lion’s 200 new features aren’t covered a large number are covered with just enough detail to make them useful such as Airplay, Notifications, and dictation.
Need to get up to speed on Apple’s latest cat quickly? This is the book for you.
Pros: Straightforward and right on target
Cons: Not a comprehensive guide
