Book Reviews – “Working Smarter for Mac Users” eBook was published in 2017 and was written by Bob Levitus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_LeVitus). Mr. Levitus has published more than 75 non-fiction books.
I purchased this book from Bob when he spoke to the Capital Macintosh Users Group (https://www.capmac.org) last spring. He gave a short overview of his book that night and it intrigued me.
As the name of this book implies, it focuses on techniques and software to enable Mac Users to work more effectively. Some of the tips are very Mac-specific, but there are other tips that anyone can use.
I have been a Mac user since shortly after it was introduced. I have also read and posted about Mac software for several years. That said, I learned a lot from Bob’s book. It is not something I will read once and set on the shelf. I know I will be looking back through it for his recommendations as an on-going reference.
Bob has set up a website (https://www.workingsmarterformacusers.com) and offers a newsletter as well as a full course on how to “work smarter”. If you use a Mac or procrastinate, you might want to take a look at this book. I thought it was well worth the $25 price. The book is available in both print and eBook format from Amazon. I personally chose the eBook version. With this version, all of the photos in the book can be blown up to study in detail. The eBook also contains videos that cannot be included in the print version. I give this novel a 5 out of 5.
My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
