If you are going to suggest something like this, it might be a good idea to include some sort of link to it or to a writeup on it.

It depends what you want to achieve, but many users won't need to touch a manual.

Don't forget there is extensive Help online, as well as via Mac Help.

I wouldn't buy a book before getting a Mac. If you are familiar with Windows and other desktop GUIs then there shouldn't be much of a learning curve.

Heck, I picked up a mac in 1998 with zero computer knowledge and have never had to read the first book... from Mac OS 8 all the way up to OS 10.4.10
One major thing I love about the apple - all it takes is common sense unless you're going into programming or something!:)

I picked up a raspberry iMac for free about a year ago. It had 9.2 on it, I was going to try to put panther on it, but the ram was crazy expensive. So I tried using 9.2...and found that it was unintuitive and for me really hard to use compared to OS X. I gave it away for free to a college student who needed a computer. I've found OS X to be the opposite for me, though. Everything in the right place and generally set up pretty good from the get go.

I bought a book on OSX when I got my first Mac. I read over some things in it the first night but since then I haven't touched it. Everything I've needed to know has come from here, google, apple.com, and other mac sites.
