    Wife comes from PC background, but she just got a macbook for Christmas. I want to get her a book to help with the transition, so I was looking at the "Missing Manual" books from David Pogue.

    I meant to order the "Switching to Macs" book, but accidentally bought the regular Snow leopard book instead. If anyone has experience with both, is there much difference between the two books? Would I be better off returning the Snow leopard book and getting the Switching to Macs one instead?

    Thanks!

    I bought and used "switching to the mac" when I bought my first mac. It was more helpful than the either the Leopard or Snow leopard books.

    For me it was more important to have explanations of the differences rather than how to use leopard.

    Thanks, old-wiz. I thought so, but if there isn't much difference, I thought I'd save myself the trouble of returning and rebuying.

    Anyone else have any experience with these two books?
