    This is a nice quick general overview of automation software for macOS I found that I already knew about a third of the stuff in this book, another third was stuff that wasn t applicable interesting to me, and the remaining third was stuff that was both new and interesting useful for me So that s a pretty good ratio, for someone like me who has been using Macs for about 20 years.The version I read was fairly up to date as of June 2018 There might have been a few dead links in the book, but there wasn t really anything that was so outdated as to be useless And there was coverage of some fairly recent stuff, like the Omni Group s new JavaScript stuff.I d recommend this book if you re a Mac user that wants to automate some stuff but doesn t know where to start Automator, AppleScript, JavaScript, bash scripts Or if you re a long time Mac user that knows a bit, but wants to fill some gaps The book doesn t get deep into any one subject, but gives you enough to get started and figure out where to get info on any subject that you need to learn about.

    Definitely for Mac newbies Nothing in this book says Power Users Welcome except the shell script section For that, I give it two stars It s definitely good for those new to OSX.
