Comments about oreilly OS X El Capitan: The Missing Manual:
I use it as a review of basic techniques that have slipped out of memory, to learn where Apple has moved things I use frequently, and practice the new techniques introduced in the new version. Essentially I use it for relearning and acquiring new computer skills.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
