What do you get when you cross a Mac with an iPad? OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Its 200 new features include iPaddish goodies like dictation, Notification Center, and Reminders—but not a single page of instructions. Fortunately, David Pogue is back, with the expertise and humor that have made this the #1 bestselling Mac book for over 10 years straight.

Are you an existing Mac user who upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion? Or are you a new Mac user who plunged into the worldof the Mac on a system with Mountain Lion installed?
