The Mac OS X Conversion Kit takes a unique approach to getting users up and
running on Mac OS X. Rather than explaining the details behind each new

with the steps and Kelby’s signature writing style (a conversational tone
interspersed with humor) makes the book an easy read.

Early editions of The Mac OS X Conversion Kit will be on sale at the Mac
Design Conference, May 28-30 in Chicago. Official book sales start June 2
and pre-orders are being taken at The Mac
OS X Conversion Kit is published by Peachpit Press and retails for $29.95.
