O'Reilly Media

Retail Price $34.99

Book Description: 

What do you get when you cross a Mac with an iPad? OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Its 200 new features include iPaddish goodies like dictation, Notification Center, and Reminders—but not a single page of instructions. Fortunately, David Pogue is back, with the expertise and humor that have made this the #1 bestselling Mac book for over 10 years straight.

  • Big-ticket changes. Twitter and Facebook intgration. Air-Play TV mirroring. Power Nap. Game Center. Documents in the Cloud. iMessages. Gatekeeper. If Apple wrote it, this book covers it.
  • Mountain Lion Watch. This book demystifies the hundreds of smaller enhancements, too, in all 50 programs that come with the Mac: Safari, Mail, Messages, Preview…
  • Shortcuts. This must be the tippiest, trickiest Mac book ever written. Undocumented surprises await on every page.
  • Power users. Security, accounts, networking, build-your own Services, file sharing with Windows—this one witty, expert guide makes it all crystal clear.

There's something new on practically every page of this new edition, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. Apple's brought a new cat to town, and Mac OS X Mountain Lion: The Missing Manual is the best way to tame it.

Book Bargains Review



The text of this book is wonderful, insightful, and helpful. The David Pogue's writing style is clearly and concise and peppered with humor throughout.  It makes it very readable and understandable for everyone from a beginner to an advanced user.  The tutorial in this book is wonderful.  It walks you through the uses of Mountain Lion in a simple manner so you can get started right away. The book itself is good sized and has many useful tips and illustrations.  You can read through the whole thing and then easily go back to study different topics more in depth.  This is certainly my go-to book for this program.
