            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.

              This is truly the manual that should have been in the (virtual) box. Even as a long time OS X user I still find great information from David's books on using OS X.
