Christmas gifts for Mac users (2): an iWork “cookbook”

15Dec12

For Mac users who still haven’t ventured away from Microsoft Office, the “iWork for Mac OS X Cookbook” by Alexander Anichkin provides lots of ideas on how to create great documents and presentations. The iWork suite consists of Pages (word processing), Numbers (spreadsheets) and Keynote (presentations). According to Packt Publishing, you can:

Cover of "iWork for Mac OS X Cookbook”“Use iWork to create high quality documents for professional printing or internet use.

Written for both the new and experienced iWork user, this book is a step-by-step guide to creating dazzling graphics, unique clip art, logos, and sophisticated designs to rival top-end professional programs”.

You can even use Numbers to “demystify Excel spreadsheets”, so that can’t be bad.

Added bonus: the author, Alexander Anichkin, is a translator (among lots of other things), and the author of the I Work in Pages blog.

Not a bonus, but necessary disclosure: I was very marginally involved with the production of this book, as a pre-publication reviewer.
