The iBook is just great

The first time I worked on an iBook, I was impressed. From the cool look to refined, speedy keyboard and great performance, I knew this was the laptop computer for "the rest of us."

But I wrote "Sams Teach Yourself the iBook in 24 Hours" not just for the iBook user. It also has full coverage of Macintosh basics, including Mac OS 9, and the Internet. Anyone who is new to the Mac platform or wishes to refine their computing techniques can benefit from this book.

"The most interesting portion of this book deals with connecting to the Internet under Mac OS while traveling (the section has relevance to users of non-iBook Mac portables too). The authors explain how to safely hook your computer to phone ports in hotels and public facilities ..... They also give a fine overview of the accessories available for spiffing up your streamlined companion." --David Wall

The Best iBook Book I've Ever Written!

From the author of the #1-selling "The iMac for Dummies"--that would be me--comes the inevitable sister book--one that lovingly and hilariously covers Apple's blockbuster, translucent laptop, the iBook. I'll guide you from turning the thing on, you all the way onto the Internet and beyond. Special chapters cover getting the most out of the iBook's battery, connecting to the Internet from the road, using USB add-ons, using the built-in programs like Quicken, Palm Desktop, and AppleWorks, and more.

This is the only iBook book, by the way, that was written AFTER Apple shipped the AirPort wireless-Internet card. So it's the only iBook book with a step-by-step tutorial in setting up the AirPort base station--and then surfing the Internet from your TV couch!

The Ultimate iBook Book ,

Review of "The Ultimate iBook Book"

Book Description

Appropriate for both computing novices and more experienced notebook users, this book covers both the iBook computer and the Macintosh operating system. It describes how the iBook and the Internet can be used to send E-mail, visit business and game Web sites, download software, and backup work. Intermediate users will find valuable information on AirPort wireless local area network (LAN) technology, networking an iBook to other iBooks and other Macintosh computers, traveling with an iBook, connecting USB and non-USB peripherals, and creating a personal Web page.

From the Publisher

The "i" in "iBook" stands for "Internet," but it could just as well stand for "innovation." The iBook is *the* consumer portable computer to get. But once you have one, what do you *do* with it? Let Dan Parks Sydow show you how to gain a complete understanding of the iBook computer -- as he did for the iMac computer in "The Ultimate iMac Book". In "The Ultimate iBook Book" you'll find plenty of information about getting started with, and getting the most from, the Macintosh operating system (including both Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9), where and how to get inexpensive or free Mac software, how to maintain and upgrade your iBook, how to transfer files from the iBook to other Macs or to the Internet, and how to use your iBook to take full advantage of the power of the Internet and the World Wide Web.

From the Author

When the iMac came out, I wanted to write a book that would help beginner and intermediate Mac users alike get the most out of their new, innovative machine -- so I wrote "The Ultimate iMac Book." Now, for iBook users, I've written the follow-up title "The Ultimate iBook Book." For all those people who e-mail me questions about connecting to the Internet, connecting your iBook to other Macs, transferring files without a floppy drive, and more -- this book is for you!
