David Pogue Releases Two New Missing Manuals


"Apple didn't fool around when it upgraded to the '11 versions of iPhoto and iMovie. These are high-octane upgrades with a lot of new features, some serious rejiggering of tools—but still, not a single page of printed instructions," notes David Pogue, New York Times tech columnist and creator of the Missing Manuals series. "What I think these programs really need is a full-color, witty, complete, plain-English, beautifully designed manual. Hmmm... who might be able to supply something like that? Indeed, we can."

Please email me if you wish to review iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual, First Edition by David Pogue and Lesa Snider or iMovie '11 & iDVD: The Missing Manual by David Pogue and Aaron Miller.

iPhoto '11 makes it easier than ever to transfer photos from a digital camera, organize them, and publish, print, or share them—but there's still no printed manual. The new version of iPhoto boasts loads of new features including easier ways to get your photos online and new options for creating printed projects. Fortunately, David Pogue and Lesa Snider team up in this funny, authoritative book that should have been in the box.
