Experience Needed/Audience: Macintosh users with an 
annoying itch about their hardware or software that needs 
scratching, at least for problems covered by this book. The 
author assumes that you know enough about your Macintosh 
and the software to follow the fixes provided. 
Strengths: The book is well written and comfortably and 
logically laid out. A detailed and comprehensive index is aimed 
at helping you navigate to the section you most need, thus 
enabling application of `calamine lotion' to the itching 
Weaknesses: Unfortunately, John Rizzo highlighted many 
annoyances that I didn't know I had, so I was forced, as a type 
A personality, to deal with them. As a result, I was able to 
correct or compensate for at least a baker's dozen minor 
irritations that had not yet become full blown annoyances. 
From the Publisher's Overview 
 Anyone who plugs in a Mac, whether it's the proud owner of the very latest version or someone 
still tapping away on yesterday's model, usually finds these machines to be an immensely 
popular and beneficial tool. Unfortunately, they can also be a royal pain in the neck. Any way 
you slice it, Macs still have a tendency to induce minor headaches at the most inopportune times.
