I tried a search for "book" but that gets tons of threads where Macbook is written Mac book etc. so hopefully nobody will get mad at my posting what may have been discussed already.

Of the several beginner books available is there one that's distinctly better than the rest as a reference on getting from pc to Mac? Thanks.

Support the entire Constitution, not just the parts you like.

Check Switch101 for Apple's online guide Apple - Support - Switch 101

As for books I would recommend David Pogue's 'Leopard: The Missing Manual' which, as well as being a comprehensive reference for OSX in general, actually includes a large section on the PC to Mac switch and may be the only book you will need to buy.

I'm assuming you are in the USA so here's the link to Amazon: Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual: David Pogue: Books

If you are in the UK it is also available on Amazon and I have seen it in most WHSmiths, Waterstones, Ottakers, Borders etc. branches.

I don't know if it's okay if I give my own ebooks a plug, but they are geared to beginners, so here are the links to my Leopard books:

Introduction to Leopard - Book 1

Introduction to Leopard - Book 2

Introduction to Leopard - Book 3
