Snow Leopard Bible

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 4:51 AM

I'm excited. Tomorrow is launch day. No, not of Snow Leopard (though I am excited about that too), but of the Snow Leopard Bible. Two really excellent writers, Galen Gruman and Mark Hattersley, wrote most of this book and I think it will be a great resource for those wanting to tackle Snow Leopard head on. But, there is “one more thing:” they wrote most of it, but I'm thrilled to say I was the third (albeit minor) contributor.

This is my first contribution to go into book form and it was a genuine pleasure to work on. I contributed the chapter in the book on Mac OS X's UNIX functionality, which was a topic I am certainly excited about. Aaron Black, the purchasing editor, and Marty Minner, the project editor, were both top notch folks that made the task enjoyable and I'm glad I had the opportunity to work with them.

Certainly, getting to work with Snow Leopard ahead of its release was great too, although not being able to talk about it for months was a frustrating! :)

If you'd like a copy of the book, you can get it in print or pulp-free Kindle editions over at (associate links).

Proud of you, Tim! Soon you'll actually be famous among the Sons of Apple.

Woohooo! I must confess to a slight amount of envy, but I will allow Christ to transform it into joy. :mrgreen:

I wasn't planning to upgrade, but I think I will now just so I have an excuse to read "your" book.

Thanks, Ed! Hmm... "The Sons of Apple" sounds profound... Caedmon, thanks to you, too. Jason, wow -- thanks! I think it is a worthy upgrade, anyway. Of course, I'm still waiting for my final release copy of SL to arrive. Apple sent it via USPS...
