I give this book 5 stars because I was expected and was able to help me better to understand the computer I bought from Newegg.com (Refurbished)
Thorsenmark - MacBook Pro Essentials Review
Great reference to appreciating and understanding a new MacBook Pro system!
A. Ajv - Very helpful
I found this online book to be extremely informative without being too dry and uninteresting. It is full of useful tricks and tips. I will definitely keep this handy and revisit when using the different features of the MacBook Pro.
Jack McMullan - Helpful But Biased
I gave it five stars because it was everything I exspected and was able to help me to better understand the computer I just bought. However, it is all one huge advert for the MacBook itself so I felt it was a bit biased on how “easy” everything was going to be for me.
Carlo157 - MacBook Pro
The Book was very helpful.
The Zohn - Apple Makes It Easy, Albeit With Its Share of Frustrations
Apple definitely has the essentials packed into this guide. For most folks, it’ll be all they need for educational material as they get to know the ins-and-outs of their new Thunderbolt-lined MacBooks, and it’ll certainly serve as a quick reference guide thereafter.
For a manual, it’s light reading. It’s concise in its general instruction and its explanation of features, and it’s presented in an engaging narrative, which certainly helps keep the yawning at bay.
My only complaint is that it is choc-full of instructional references that pull you away from your learning by forcing you to venture into distant sections of the guide to get answers. The circuitousness becomes frustrating after a while, but with the right bookmarks set up, you can find an easy work-around.
Deus DIo - Well-detailed and Useful with Basic Knowledge
After reading the guide, I understood so much more about how to use the MacBook Pro. I used Windows for most of my life and have just begun transitioning to MacOS for college work. The guide helped me understand the basics of how to use the MacBook.
J. Trent Vines - MacBook Pros u must know gestures & such
I love this new MBP.. I think Apple has done a heck of a job with it.. I don’t think the touch bar is all it’s hyped up to be, although it can be helpful at times, but this being my 2nd MBP and has the i9, this thing. wastes no time doing any task and the graphics are absolutely stunning.. I know they aren’t 5K an all of that but it’s a computer and you can output 4K with the correct video adapters and such but it’s always a pleasure having your manual right here in iBooks where you need it & learn the shortcuts and you’ll be a mac user for life… I’ve got everything Apple and I’m more than pleased with everything from the watches, to the iphone X I have, and now the addition of the MacBook really makes running a company that’s web based very easy and they’re just made for productivity as long as you read up on them and know how to use them properly, youll never try PC again unless you’re running paralells…. Great computer - great to have the manual on board for when you need it!!
H.Gossard - A new beginning
I have to say after spending a good two hours reading this book I can say that I know more about how my Macbook Pro(2018) works and how to use it. I’m kind of a first generation user of Macbooks in my family so it was kind of surprise that I would have to learn a new operating system by the time I leave for college, which is about 2 months away. This book is a guide design to help you better understand MacBook’s. Its a new beginning that I’m looking forward too.
Amydeez - Everything i needed to know
grerat to have this book on my computer its very helpful and will be a great resource moving forward!
The last king of Prussia - Decent
Would have enjoyed some more information on how to do more advanced tasks or where to find information about such things. A decent starting board none the less.
Muddy Mud skipper Jr - Not much help
I had a neighbors 12 year old kid explain more than this “users manual” they call a book.
bt4jc - Concise, helpful and useful book
Reading this book has been a very helpful read for me to ‘unpack’ all the goodies in my new laptop. The content was neither too technologically boggling nor confusing. A lot of my questions were answered by the read through the book. A nice balance of concise with helpful links out for further study. Great job and I feel empowered and ready-to-go with my new Mac. Thanks very much.
G-ma Mini - New to Mac
Very helpful! I have an iPhone so it wasn’t completely confusing. After setting up I am able to go back and look things up! I always say ‘I know just enough about computers to be dangerous!’
大山子一一 - Cannot download from China
This book is not supposed to be read by China mainland users?
15-4-2 - Thorough and helpful introduction
This is a great user’s manual for the everyday user. The MacBook Pro has surprising features. This book describes them well, tells you where to find and how to use them and never gets bogged down in technical detail. If you have a new macbook, take a couple of hours and wander through it with this superb guide. It’s fun.
NazaninM11071365 - Good
NewToMac123 - Extremely helpful!
After reading this step by step book i now feel comfortable, and confident while using my new MacBook. if you arent sure about how to use a Mac , then give this a try. Only took about 15 mintues.
2Hman - The Knowledge You Gain
This book was very informative. It gives you the nuts and bolts of how to use the MacBook Pro. What is especially helpfulare the tips that are given you throughout the explanations of the sections. Pictures and diagrams help clarify anything that might not be understood in the written word. Overall, this was a very helpful book
Took the bite - I See
I am a 47 year old who has never worked with Mac before. I have wanted to switch for sometime, but I felt like it was going to be like learning Russian. I finally took the plunge and and purchased a Macbook Pro. After reading the book I am past my fears and am walking in confidence. I think the switch from Windows world to Mac will be far more seamless, painless and exciting than I had thought. This book was very helpful, easy to read and full of practical information. The links embedded in the document let me explore what I wanted to know more about or try immediately and made the experience more like an adventure than a classroom type expereince.
Sass11023 - MacBook Pro iBooks
Fantastic job with this. I love it only thing is as a my daughter is a student full time and was wondering for reference reasons why she couldn't tak a quote from some book possible lomg short any way really and have the app automatically turn to PDF. If this is possible can you email me its a lot of time wasting when you have to do it the reg way and or use a PDF converter.
Mamacat2k - Great reference book for new Mac users
Easy to follow and understand how to navigate and use your new MacBook Pro. I keep it saved in my iBooks on all my devices for a quick reference.
toaster hunter - Worth reading even for a Mac veteran
I have been using Macs since 1990. I learned a few neat tips from reading the guide. In particular how to customize the touch bar, lock my notes, and a reminder of keyboard shorcuts. It’s worth reading so you get the most out of your Mac.
Ted Spaceman - More hype than info
There's a lot of rah-rah sales pitch about the great things you can do with the Pro, but not so much information about how things actually work. That would be okay if there were links to deeper information, but there aren't. For example, what about syncing with an iPad? How do I do it? What does that do to Photos? If I delete a picture on my iPad, what happens when I sync? Or another: how do I customize the look of my windows on the Pro? If I search for "Windows" on MacHelp, I get lots of information about Microsoft Windows on a Mac, which is something else.
Rachaela. - Worth the time? YEP.
read it! it’s worth the time to get to know what you just spent money investing in. INVEST in yourself to know what is and can be at our fingertips!! I did and that was a well spend 20 min.
hygienist05 - Genny
RoseBud1117 - Excellent!!!
Excellent book! I find myself coming back and reading sections if I'm stumped on something. Highly recommend!
ELITE CMDR 666 - New to Mac World
i like how simple this guide was and with quick links. its almost dummy proof. in a matter of minutes your ready to browse or work. One thing i would of liked to see is a more detailed guide on how to work or pair my MacBook Pro with my Apple Watch 2, iPhone 7 and iPad Pro 9.7 LTE i feel like they could of added a little bit more information especially for new users like myself. but overall it does what it suppose to do and that to get you up and running...
A new user from Earth - Informative and considering
- Multiple solutions to end-users
- Relexig to read
- Caring about users’ different situations
- Easy to operate for every one with informative introductions
- A little bit long
- No video demonstration
- Accessories being too expensive
ClydeArt - My Take: I found a lot of helpful ...
My Take: I found a lot of helpful information, especially clicking on the live links within the documentent. I discovered why my 27 inch Apple display would not work with my new MacBook Pro 15” (It is a 2010 Apple LED Cinema Display with Display Port not Thunderbolt 1. - I can spell Obsolete -.) This document helped me understqand significant differences, If not advances, between the new and old. (MBP 17 inch circa 2011 vs MBP 15 inch Fall of 2016 delivered Jan. 2017.
iPhone Fanatic - Excellent Guide
Easy to understand and great information
Mud Mud Mud Mud - Useless
This entire “book” is basically a 150 page advertising flyer that tells us how great the Mac and all its features are. Doesn’t give any clue as to how to do these things other than contact Apple in one form or another.
Chris.1202 - Good Book

Psychotic Weasel - Does the job
It could be more detailed, but it gives a good, quick overview of the main points. Useful for PC users crossing over to the Dark Side.
Aidarmn - Student
It is a short useful manual for new commers to Mac world
jdydhfhxhdhfh - It’s not that bad
It’s ok. Quite helpful
MrEmpty - Can’t get the full book
Can’t download the full book. The sample works (and is helpful), but not the full book. A pity.
Writerpro - ms
Terrific book. Clear, easy info to follow. Thanks.
Rampaging Aardvark - Corrupted!
I would download this book, but it is corrupted.
Not very Apple-like to have the “help guide” corrupt, Apple.
Fatima5058 - Square one
I can’t even work out how to download it. I’ve got ibooks 1.10 on a day-old MacBook Pro, my eigth Mac since 1989. I get the impression that the decision makers at Apple are ever further removed from those who actually needs use their products. We’ve gone from intuitive to insuperable in a decade.
Bebrek - Meh
This is ridiculously limited if you consider that a a photo camera would come with a 400 odd page manual.
AminMalone - Detailed
Its a pretty good book, specifically for people new to Mac. I’m not new to Mac, but i still found it very useful, there are many things that i didnt know, now i know :)
weisuvi - very good
this is my first time to buy a MacBook and i have been an apple fan for over 5 years. macbook pro is an excellent product and this essentials are good to read because it teaches me a lot of things that i didn’t know before. i recommend it!
