Mac OS Books
I wrote my first Mac OS Visual QuickStart Guide for Peachpit Press about Mac OS back in 1998. That book covered Mac OS 8, which was long-awaited and brand spanking new at the time. The book became an instant bestseller, selling out at Macworld Expo in the first day of the show. I’ve been revising the book regularly since then.
On this site you can find information about the three most recent editions of my Mac OS Visual QuickStart Guide:
- Mac OS X Lion: Visual QuickStart Guide
- Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide
- Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Visual QuickStart Guide
Use the above links as starting points for information here about a specific version of Mac OS.

Internet-Related Books and Videos
I’ve been building websites since 1995 and blogging since 2003. I’ve also authored (and co-authored) a number of books and videos about Internet-related topics. Here’s a list of my recent titles:
I also write occasionally about social networking on Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn.

Support for Out of Print Books
I’ve written more than 75 books over the past 20 years. Only a handful of those books are recent and even fewer are still in print.
Unfortunately I cannot provide support for all those old books. If you’re still using an older software product and you need help with a problem that’s not covered in my book about it, your best bet is to visit the support forums for the software’s developer. That’s usually a good resource for getting help with older software.
