Mac OS X Powerhound

Pogue Press
Rob Griffiths 

Most of the OS X titles we've seen randomly around the shops start at
too low a level, so while the book might be big and thick, the material
is mostly concerned with the blindingly obvious and so isn't of much
interest. This book starts at a higher level than that, and so people
who already know a bit can find a bit more to go through.

In addition to four hundred and two pages of tips about GUI apps there's
also a section on Unix. It's probably harder to surprise Unix users as
there's so much information available already but most non-guru types
will find a few things they didn't already know.
