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."
