    I am looking for a beginner's guide to OS X for a non-technical person who is used to OS 9 but is going to move to OS X. Anyone have suggestions for a good one?

    Thanks.

    The absolute best intro to OS X without all the stupid "Dummies" BS is David Pogue's "Mac OS X: The Missing Manual." Check it out:

    Since you are a self-proclaimed beginner, I would recommend Pogue's book. However, if you are looking to unlock the power of Unix in OS X, go for "Mac OS X Unleashed."
