Excellent guide to OS X El Capitan, covers the basics and some more advanced user information. Illustrations are very clear and with the appropriate text, makes for an easy understanding of the program. If you are looking for a really in depth guide to El Capitan, David Pogue's Missing Manual might be better but this guide comes pretty close to it. Highly recommended.

John Ray has a knack for making technical information easy to understand. I bought his book for the Mavericks edition and was so pleased with it that it was a no-brainer to get his El Capitan edition. For some reason David Pogue's Missing Manual series of books for Macs are very popular, but I find them incomplete and confusing compared to the John Ray books.

Very helpful and well written book. I am a new user of Apple products, and this book was an excellent help in showing me the basics of how to use OS X. Highly recommend it to anyone that's new to Apple computers, but this book is not for anyone that's looking for information on the more advanced abilities of OS X.

As a total newbie to Apple and OS X, I am finding this book invaluable. The OS looks really simple, and a bit limited. but the way to do anything is in there, somewhere. This book is helping me find those options.They are obvious or automatic to long time users, but I am lost, but learning fast.Every time I start to regret the move from Windows, I find a tip in this book that gets me over the hump.Very happy with tis book!

This book certainly added to my learning experience. New to Mac Air Book, this volume aided my adjustment from years of Window use. The book is easy to follow and gives a thorough follow-up. New to Mac Air Book? This is my recommendation.

My husband & I found this book a bit too advanced for us. We are brand new to Mac computers & may have been better to go with a Mac for Dummies book. Just our take on it. We purchased this book due to its higher rating. Nothing wrong with the book I am sure, it is just our lack of knowledge with even the most basic things.

As a recent convert to Mac, this book hit all the points I was looking for. Lots of things covered in this book that I had no idea a Mac could do.

Perfect item...So far has assisted me in setting up El Capitan exactly to the way I want---*******
