Book: Mac Kung Fu: Over 300 Tips, Tricks, Hints, and Hacks for OS X Lion (Pragmatic Programmers)
Publisher: Pragmatic Bookshelf
Mac OS X Lion represents the pinnacle of software engineering. I confidently assert this as somebody who’s not only used every operating system on practically every type of computer but also written entire magazines and books about them.
Put simply, OS X “just works,” and like millions of others, I value that. Whenever I use a Windows computer, with its stubborn pauses and its tendency to make users jump through hoops, I’m reminded of the luxury in store whenever I boot my Mac.
But as much as I enjoy fuss-free computing, I’m also a tweaker. It’s in my nature to try and find secret settings and hidden features. I’m addicted to the Wow! moment of uncovering something new and cool, often something nobody else knows about.
This is what inspired me to write Mac Kung Fu. No other book has the same obsessive depth, and no other author has the same drive to raid the catacombs of OS X to find fascinating treasure.
