Spectacular, especially in customizing the BSD Portions!
I have been reading Rob Griffiths http://www.macosxhints.com/ since it came out years ago, and I am so happy he made this book. He has culled all the best hints from his web site, and rewritten them with plenty of photos, and extras. The stuff on customizing your OS X Unix Shell alone is well worth the price of the book. You don't know what you are missing on the Unix side of OS X until you start playing around with some of his advanced tips. I couldn't recommend this more!!!!

Some Great Stuff in here!
I bought this at the Apple Store in Downtown Chicago and on the train ride to Toledo kept waking up my traveling buddy to tell him about stuff I found in there. He'll be borrowing the book shortly. Cool tips getting into plist files and other fairly substantial tweaks.

Not the best choice for intermediate OS X users
Probably not the best choice for someone who already has a some working knowledge of Mac OS X. Filled with many useful tips and hints the book contains lots of very trivial stuff that fills the majority of the pages.
Maybe useful for an OS X newcomer but certainly not for an intermediate to power-user. I would recommend "Mac OS X Hacks" instead which has lots more to offer than this book.
