The Little Mac Book is a long running series of books which many Mac users, including myself, have been exposed to when first attempting to use the Mac platform.

I came across this series when it was in its third edition detailing the Mac OS 7.1 operating system. From then to now the author, Robin Williams, has continued to write this newcomers guide for the Mac. She also co-wrote, along with many other titles, the Mac OS X Lion: Peachpit Learning Series, which takes a deeper look into Mac than The Little Mac Book permits.

What I came across in that initial book from 1993 was every piece of information a new user needed to know to get the most out of their Mac. Fast forward to 2011 and the Lion edition of the series delivers the content in the same comprehensive and easy to follow method. Information is relevant and can be applied by users at both entry and medium skill levels.

I am perplexed and confounded, year after year, by the limited knowledge most Macintosh users have of the basics of their computers’ operation. From my first day with a Mac, I read the manuals and purchased supplementary “bibles.” In chronological order, I plowed through Encyclopedia Macintosh, then The Mac Almanac, several editions each of Mac Secrets and The Macintosh Bible, plus additional heavyweight tomes. They’re all still here, on my bulging bookshelf, awaiting my next summons.
