O’Reilly today announced the release of “AppleScript: The Missing Manual” (US$24.95), by Adam Goldstein. In the new book, Goldstein shows readers how to take full advantage of AppleScript to save time, energy, and resources by getting the English-like scripting language to do “just about anything you can do yourself” on the Mac. With his book, Goldstein promises, “Mac users of all kinds–even those who don’t know how to program–will be able to write useful AppleScripts with confidence and proficiency.”
