Introducing Working Smarter for Mac Users
the new eBook by Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus
My name is Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus. At age 30, I quit a job in advertising I'd grown to despise and became a writer. Everyone but my wife thought it would be a miracle if I succeeded. To their surprise, I had sold a few books (anyone remember Stupid Mac Tricks?) and was making a comfortable living as a writer by the mid-1990s.
But, while I seemed to be “making it,” making it was killing me. I seemed to work all the time, and while I never missed a deadline, I was tense and irritable, with the shortest of short tempers.
Then, at age 40-something, I learned I had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (A.D.H.D.). It explained a lot, and made me realize I'd have to figure out ways to compensate for symptoms that included (but were not limited to): a laughably short attention span; difficulty focusing on a single task for more than a few moments; an inability to keep my ass in a chair (vital if you're going to be a writer); and a penchant for procrastination.
I read a lot about how to prosper in spite of A.D.H.D.; on personal productivity and time management; and on procrastination (and ways to avoid it). What I found was there is little advice out there for computer users (and even less for Mac users.) Time and again I found discussions of essential time management tools and techniques like to-do lists, calendars, and journals—things that are arguably better suited to a Mac than to pen and paper—were often dismissed with a throwaway paragraph or two (or not mentioned at all).
And that's why I felt I had to write Working Smarter for Mac Users.
I spent the past 25 years figuring out how to do more work in less time so I'd have more time for things I love so you won't have to! With Working Smarter for Mac Users, you'll learn tips, techniques, and advice that's taken me over 25 years to develop.
I know this stuff works—these are the exact techniques I've used to crank out more than 80 books in 25 years (macOS Sierra For Dummies, iPhone For Dummies, and iPad For Dummies to name a few); as well as weekly columns for The Houston Chronicle (Dr. Mac) and The Mac Observer (Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves) for the past two decades.
The Joys of eBooks
This is the first book I've written that was conceived and designed as an eBook from the very start and I couldn't be happier. Yes, there will be a printed version available for those who insist. And soon. But, I can't recommend it when the eBook version is better in so many (at least three) important ways:
#1: Figures and illustrations are never too small.
In printed books I have no control over the size and placement of screen shots and illustrations. I’ve been told by countless readers that some illustrations are so small they’re illegible. In this eBook, I made sure every picture is large enough to be legible. And if you don’t think so, just click or tap to make the illustration zoom to a larger size. Let’s see a printed book do that!

#2: Video in addition to figures and illustrations.
I’m having a blast editing short videos of things that are easier to show than to tell. There aren’t that many, but I think you’re going to find a video is worth many thousands of words.
(Click the demo movie to play it.)
#3: It will never go out of date.
For the first time I will be able to update my book when necessary rather than waiting for the publisher to print another batch (or not). YAY!
(Don't click the goofy calendar animation. Nothing will happen, so why bother?)
