New Take Control book teaches Mac users how to solve Mac-related problems

Ithaca, NY USA (June 8, 2007) — Life’s rough when your Mac isn’t working
properly, but with “Take Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac,” readers can
learn how to diagnose and fix nearly any Mac-related problem. Written by
Joe Kissell, this latest addition to the Take Control series of electronic
books teaches readers the key troubleshooting procedures, along with
specific instructions for solving the most common problems Mac users
experience. Readers then learn how to apply the troubleshooting techniques
to solving entirely new problems. “Take Control of Troubleshooting Your
Mac” is available for $10 at

Author Joe Kissell has also written the best-selling “Take Control of Mac
OS X Backups” and “Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac,” and he brings the
same calm, friendly advice to “Take Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac.”
Before getting into how to solve problems, Kissell walks readers through
steps designed to prevent problems from occurring and helps them assemble
tools that are essential to have around when trouble strikes.

Take Control publisher Adam Engst said, “Although many less-technical Mac
users feel that identifying and solving problems like kernel panics,
glacially slow performance, or application crashes is something that only
Mac experts can do, with this book, anyone can be their own consultant.”

Joe Kissell, along with Take Control authors Glenn Fleishman and Matt
Neuburg, and Take Control founders Adam Engst and Tonya Engst, was honored
this week by inclusion in the MacTech 25 list of most influential people in
the Macintosh technical community. For details, see:
