Our friend Craig over at the Behind the Scenes Podcast ran across this book and felt it was a good read for anyone wanting an overview of new features found in Tiger.
This is an excellent book for anyone looking for an overview of all the new features in Tiger without going too far in depth. It’s a 4-color book throughout with plenty of screenshots and written by Robin Williams, who has an excellent reputation for making tech information accessible. It may not be for hardcore geeks, but for switchers and other people new to the Mac, or anyone else who wants an overview of what’s there without having to wade through a 600-page book it’s worth looking at. Peachpit has the Spotlight chapter available for download so you can get a feel for what it’s like:
I did not care for this book at all. It was primarily a X book not a Tiger book. About 70% of the book was old stuff. It is a good book if you are new to MACS but it is the first Tiger book out which means it is not very thorough re Tiger features etc it is mainly rehashed info from older books. BTW I bought this book and read every page.
As I said, I’d recommend it primarily “for switchers and other people new to the Mac.”
