At just over 200 pages, Selbold's Pocket Guide would probably need pretty fat pockets, except I had the e-book version. It has lots of interesting things to read, plenty of curious facts but for the most part it is the type of book I found myself flicking through virtual pages, rather than getting into serious reading mode. Which is, I think, what this books strength is. Full Review  >

Mac OS X Lion Pocket Guide by Chris Seibold is one of those handly small books that O’Reilly does so well. In this case, we have a con­cise, but thor­ough, look at the key fea­tures and facets of Apple’s latest oper­at­ing sys­tem and how it changes the way in which we inter­act with our Macs. The handy book begins by expor­ing the new fea­tures and then logic­ally looks at how to upgrade, what issues may emerge and a quick over­view of how to bene­fit from the new fea­tures.
