Hi,

I am currently working on a book that is designed for people who are switching from Windows to Mac. The book will be about 100 pages and is designed to give people the knowledge most of us longtime Mac users take for granted.

I have posted a three page sample from my section on the Dock to my iDisk. I am currently about 35 pages in and would value any constructive criticism you could offer.

Your download won't unzip. Something is wrong with it.

If you like, and if I can find time, I can send you a commented version which will suggest a few editorial changes.
