In My iMac, three Mac experts--including the editor of Macworld magazine--hold forth on how to make your colorful pal speedier, better connected, and better suited to your style of work.
The authors of My iMac, Andrew Gore, Jill Baird, and Christopher Breen, have earned praise for the way they tackle neglected problems, like how to transfer information from an existing Mac's hard drive to a new iMac. They also do a great job of explaining what you can do with your iMac once it's connected to the Internet. Even the hardware photographs--often the Achilles' heel of computer books--are sharp and easy to interpret.
My iMac details everything from connecting to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to surfing and publishing your own Web pages. The book gives cyberculture its due, even explaining the usual procedure for safely converting an anonymous online acquaintance into a real-life pal. --David Wall
