Mac OS X Tiger

Andy Lester, Chris Stone, Chuck Toporeck, Jason McIntosh,
Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell, O'Reilly

This addition to the Nutshell series brings the usual no-nonsense wide coverage to Mac OS X Tiger (10.4) and tells you pretty much all you need to know, or rather reminds you, as the wide coverage is on the terse side for people who are starting with absolutely no knowledge at all.

The book has a Unix command reference followed by sections on the Terminal (console) and the Bash shell. After that are sections about text editing and processing, OS X management, which includes such things as Directory Services and Running Network Services.

The books in this series have long been a desktop books for people involved in System Administration but they, and this one too, could be useful for anyone wanting to get more from their systems, and who usually go glassy-eyed when wading through beginners' books loaded with uninteresting trivialities.
