Maria Langer

BERKELEY, Calif.-Peachpit Press unveiled the first of its seven Mac OS X
Panther titles with the release of Maria Langer’s Mac OS X 10.3 Panther:
Visual QuickStart Guide on November 15, 2003. Mac OS X 10.3 Panther: Visual
QuickStart Guide (0321213513, $24.99), which follows Peachpit’s time-tested
Visual QuickStart Guide recipe of task-based, step-by-step instructions, has
been expanded to include chapters on networking, security, Unix, the Classic
environment, utilities, and system preferences. While previous editions of
this book have been best-sellers, this edition packs a double punch by
combining the simplicity of the Visual QuickStart with the advanced skills
of the Visual QuickPro Guide-essentially offering two books in one!
