Tiger is the latest operating system for our Macs, and once again Apple surprises us with new ways of working and enjoying ourselves. As large as this book is, it contains just enough to get you started!
The first section, "Upgrade to Tiger," helps you get Tiger installed on your Mac, if it isn't already. Check out the great "migrating" feature for getting your files from your old Mac to your new one.
For new Mac OS X users, "Mac OS X Basics for New Users" gets you up and running, covering all the basics of working in this operating system. Experienced users might be surprised at what they learn here!
Then new and experienced users both move on to the third section, "Make Tiger Work For You," where you will learn how to customize your Mac to suit your needs and discover the new Tiger features in so many of the Apple applications that came with your computer.
And the fourth section, "A New Way of Working," explains the big new features of Tiger, the ones that change the way you use your Mac.
It's so great to be a Mac user. ;-)
