    David and Brett have hit a good formula for providing secrets into Mountain Lion. The Secret handbook that didn't come with the computer. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to go beyond turning a computer on for email and web browsing. there is so much more your mac can do for you, and this book will wet your apetite.

    Yet another great product from the master of writing technical books that don't lecture you and bore you rigid with needless details. The idea of mixing screencasts with text is not new but it is done masterfully here and is bund to become a new standard for technical publications. David Sparks is Mr Self Deprecation himself which is what makes him so easy to listen. His voice comes out loud and clear in his writing and you almost want his voice to be immortalised as a Siri voice or even a Mac Dictation voice. Great work Bret and David. Look forward to new titles to come.
