Reviews - What do customers think about The Mac Tiger Server Black Book (Little Black Books (Paraglyph Press))?
Excellent book Feb 29, 2008
Very good book. It gives you a clear understanding about OS X 10.3 server and its utilities. You need to have a little bit of experience with OS X before you jump into this book, but other than that... this book is great.
Walking the walk not just talk... Feb 2, 2008
As a fellow author and a technical services provider as well as an ACTC four times over, I feel somewhat uniquely qualified to provide perspective on this work. This book doesn't purport to be the proverbial equivalent to "Everything But The Kitchen Sink." It is not one of those literary anachronisms of a book that goes feature by feature, droning on and on, burying any useful content in a sea of verbosity. Rather, this is a task driven book and if you've really done IT support; then you'll know Charles Edge has done it too. The content is original, well balanced and interesting. The style of writing is clear and well edited. In other words, this book is tight and that's how I like to roll.
Great Book Apr 9, 2007
I read this book after taking the ACHDS because I was interested in setting up Apple Servers in different environments as well as taking the Mac OS X Server Essentials v10.4 Exam (9L0-507). It was one of the easiest reads I've had in a long time. I came from the Microsoft side of IT, and some of the material from that area is dry. This book was helpful, and I enjoyed the real life examples. I still use it on occasion as a guide, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to know about Mac OS 10.4 Server, and how to apply it in the field.

Nice Mac Tiger Book Jan 5, 2007
'Mac Tiger Server: Little Black Book' by Charles Edge is a nice text that will assist all Mac Tiger users in better understanding and using this piece of hardware and software. There are a lot of screenshots but that's never a bad thing in this reviewers opinion, as the more easily I can see how things are laid out, the better!! If I want lines and lines of black text on white paper I will get the Wall Street Journal, if I want a book that I can use and learn from, this is a great one to have on your desk!!
