Sebastopol, CA—There's never been a better time to switch to Mac OS X and David Pogue's newly released Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Lion Edition (O'Reilly, $29.99 USD) can help you do it.

"Who ever thought, in the days when Mac owners were an oppressed minority, that Macs would represent 20 percent of the world's new-computer sales?" asks Pogue, the weekly personal-technology columnist for the New York Times and an Emmy award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News. "An incredible number of these people are refugees from the Windows world who could use a hand crossing the great divide into the Mac world. This book is for them: the oppressed majority."

The important stuff you need to know about Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Lion Edition:

  • Transferring your stuff. Moving files from a PC to a Mac by cable, network, or disk is the easy part. But how do you extract your email, address book, calendar, Web bookmarks, buddy list, desktop pictures, and MP3 files? Now you'll know.
  • Recreating your software suite. This book identifies the Mac equivalents of your favorite Windows programs.
  • Learning Lion. Apple's latest operating system is faster, smarter, and more iPaddish—but you still have to learn it. iCloud. Gestures. Mission Control. Launchpad. AirDrop. App Store. AutoSave.

Indeed, If Apple wrote it, this new book covers it.
