Macs Translated for PC Users teaches lifelong, hardwired PC users how to accomplish on their new Macs all the things they instinctively know how to do on their PCs. This book is different from the many "Migrating to a Mac" books on the market, taking a similar to how a French phrase book gives English-speaking travelers what they don't know (French Phrases) in the context of what they do know (English phrases) rather than attempt to teach them an entirely new language. Rather than teach PC users how to acclimate themselves to a foreign piece of hardware with an entirely different operating system, Macs Translated for PC Users simply looks at all the tasks and shortcuts that PC users are familiar with and translates them so that readers know what to do on their Macs.
