    I'm giving my father-in-law my old 12" PowerBook and Leopard, and as he is a complete novice computer user I need to also get him a book.

    I've used the "For Dummies" series before, and they seem pretty good. I see there is a Leopard for Dummies coming out in November, but the front cover and blurb includes (among other things) "Searching with Sherlock".

    Say what?

    Surely Sherlock is dead and buried? It doesn't inspire much confidence if the latest Mac Dummies book is advertising that it will help with a long-since deceased (and mostly useless anyway) app?

    So is this the book I should be aiming for, or does anybody have any other recommendations?

    Bearing in mind please that the intended reader is 60 years old and has NO computing experience. Zero. Zip. Nothing. Not a bean. He knows what a mouse is. That's it.

    Out of all the books i've read, i think the missing manual's are the best, they are quite easy to follow and reference to when needed.
