User reviews about the book
Fantastic and challenging
It’s trully challening to read John articles and reviews. He has such a deep knowledge of not only the subject at hand but also diverse array of related topics, that you must be prepared to follow quite a lot of links in this book.
This is a book, like its predecessors, that demands a lot of time to be properly read. Several weeks after I got it, I have finished reading. It’s amazingly detailed and good.
I have been reading John's Mac OS X reviews since the beginning, and they never fail to disappoint. John's Yosemite review lives up to the high standards of his last work. If you're curious about Apple's latest operating system, this book is $5 well spent.
Thank you, John
Siracusa sets the gold standard for operating system reviews. It's a shame that other operating systems seem not to ignite the kind of passion that OSX does in John. When he retires from doing this labor of love, the void may never be filled. Enjoy his labor while you can.
The definitive review
Always on point, John nails it again.
Amazingly well done
John Siracusa has given so much good analysis of OS X over the years, and this is no exception.
The Quinessential OS X Review!
This book is the quinessentail OS X Review from one of the smartest and knowledgeable guys on the planet… and of course, I’m talking about Mr. Siracusa. If you want to REALLY get to know the inner-workings and understand the most notebable new features of OS X Yosemite, then this book is for you. For my money there is no one more capable and more knowledgable when it comes to understanding not only the newest features of OS X but the history behind it and what it means.
In short, GET THIS BOOK!!! Its a no-brainer buy. Seriously… A no brainer.
Always a great read at new OS launch time!
John put another great review together this year and I'm glad to have made time to read it. I personally enjoyed the Swift details!
Sure you can read it for free online but buy it because it's the right thing to do and maybe we can convince Mr. Siracusa to keep putting himself through hell every year to produce these epic reviews. 👍
A great in depth review as always
John's reviews of the OS help provide just the right amount of depth to give the reader an idea what is new with every release. This year in particular, the section on Swift helps explain this new cornerstone to Apple software development. Well worth the read for anyone interested in the new OS X release.
