    Do you guys recommend any Mac OS X books? One that will tell me just about all of the features of OS X and how to use them. From networking to changing font sizes and everything in between is what I am looking for.

    Finally I have arrived.....
    It took me a few year before I get really conformable with OS X. I had to do some trial and error with my first Mac, 550 MHz Ti PowerBook. Now, I am very comfortable with my Mac. I have Mac OS X Tiger Edition Bible. I also read the missing manual Apple Script, learning Unix for Mac OS X Tiger, and other magazines in print
    and online. I think there is no silver bullet you can nail OS X to your submission. But those books helped me understand OS X better.

    The Missing Manual: Mac OS X (in my case Panther edition) really helped me start to feel comfortable with a Mac after switching from Window. I highly recommend it (the newer Tiger edition that is). It's full of little tips and hints that even many experience Mac users don't know about, and of course it also is really good at covering the basics for new users.
