Three Leopard books
Que Publishing recently introduced two new books for Leopard users - "Easy Mac OS X Leopard" and "Mac OS X Leopard On Demand" - while Sams Publishing unveiled the "Mac OS X Leopard Phrasebook". "Easy Mac OS X Leopard" is written by Kate Binder, featuring fully illustrated steps with bolded and highlighted areas signifying what a user is to do to follow along with the book. "Mac OS X Leopard On Demand", by Steve Johnson, uses real world examples to provide context for the instructions it gives. The books take users through the Finder, iApps and several other programs, in addition to networking and maintenance. Both books are currently available, with "On Demand" selling for $40, and "Easy Leopard" for $30.
The "Mac OS X Leopard Phrasebook", written by Brian Tiemann, is designed to allow users to access the UNIX underpinnings of Mac OS X, providing finer control over the Finder, Spotlight, networks, Exposé, security, and more. The phrasebook contains more than 100 complete commands, and is pocket-sized for easy transportation. "Leopard Phrasebook" is currently shipping, selling for $20.
