Review:

Be warned: How to Do Everything with Your iMac won't show you how to use your iMac to prepare a salad or locate lost golf balls. It will teach you how to set up an iMac, connect it to other computers (locally and via the Internet) and use all sorts of iMac software for business and pleasure.

Author Todd Stauffer devotes a significant amount of text to using AppleWorks software. He explains how to format letters, perform calculations with spreadsheets, create graphs and draw pictures with this productivity suite. He also includes coverage of Kai's Photo Soap and Quicken, along with information on using Internet software from Microsoft and Netscape. The author mixes expert, fact-rich prose with step-by-step procedures that ought to solve almost any problem you encounter.

The real pleasure of reading this book derives from Stauffer's writing style. He's funny without being flippant or sounding strained; he's technically accurate without being tedious and the information he includes is comprehensive without being dull. His style enables you to read this book away from your iMac and still come away more knowledgeable about your computer. --David Wall, amazon.com

From the Publisher:

From the Technical Editor
As technical editor, I worked with the technical details. And boy, were there lots of details in this book to work with. Unlike most books, this book isnít about one subject; Itís several books in one. It covers, well, everything: all the software that comes with the iMac, as well as the iMacís hardware and communications abilities. Never used a spreadsheet before? Need to set up a network? Want some tips on playing Nanosaur? Itís all in this book.

If youíve never touched a computer or a Macintosh before, Todd Staufferís "Everything" book will get you up to speed in no time. But even if you been using Macs for years, youíll find helpful details and tricks on such advanced topics as troubleshooting problems, editing movies, and managing your mortgage loan. Even I learned things from this book. (Just donít tell Todd.)

"Everything" goes way beyond the iMacís on-line help and gives you an encyclopedia of manuals for all of the software that comes with the iMac. And thereís nothing like paper when youíre trying to figure out how to get your software to do what you want it to.

But How to Do Everything doesnít read like a manual. Todd Staufferís easy-to-read style makes it a breeze to read through the nearly 600 pages. And there are plenty of screen shots that show you whatís going on. This book is the perfect reference book for every iMac ownerís shelf.
