Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book may be not the right one for your Mac Book Air - I bought this for my wife and there are many differences between what the book visually describes as opposed to the actual Mac Air Book; buttons that don't exist, buttons that are missing, incorrect and confusing screen shots. Et Caveat Emptor!!!
