"Pogue is one of the most astute explorers popular technology has known.... We'd challenge the most confident guru to traverse more than a dozen or so pages without finding a tip that is not only new, but incredibly useful.... Just pick up a copy for yourself. It may not only help you save face, you could find yourself saving a good bit of time and having a lot more fun, too." --Ric Getter, MacDirectory Magazine
