David Pogue Releases Two New Missing Manuals

March 30, 2011


"Apple didn't fool around when it upgraded to the '11 versions of iPhoto and iMovie. These are high-octane upgrades with a lot of new features, some serious rejiggering of tools—but still, not a single page of printed instructions," notes David Pogue, New York Times tech columnist and creator of the Missing Manuals series. "What I think these programs really need is a full-color, witty, complete, plain-English, beautifully designed manual. Hmmm... who might be able to supply something like that? Indeed, we can."

Please email me if you wish to review iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual, First Edition by David Pogue and Lesa Snider or iMovie '11 & iDVD: The Missing Manual by David Pogue and Aaron Miller.

Fortunately, David Pogue and Lesa Snider team up in this funny, authoritative book that should have been in the box.
