Library Journal Review

A timely and complete reference for OS X is in order. Maria Langer's Mac OS X (Computer Media, LJ 7/01) faltered, but Feiler has come through. He clearly covers a range of concepts, including the Aqua interface, networking, applications, and, surprisingly, programming OS X with Carbon and Cocoa (see above). This volume lives up to its nameDthe programming aspect is a nice bonus. Highly recommended for libraries catering to Mac users. (c) Copyright 2010.
