Most OS references are thick, text-heavy books that require you to do a lot of reading and digging to find the information that you want. Mac OS X Leopard On Demand gives you a task-based reference to quickly locate just exactly what you want to do and then walks you through the task. It provides additional tips and tricks in the form of ''Did You Know'' and ''Important'' elements, and offers a pleasing four-color, visual layout.
