How would you like to save up to an hour a day
for the rest of your life

Read 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. 

My mission is to show you how to use your Mac
better, faster, and more elegantly.

How to banish procrastination forever.

And how to do more work in less time
so you have more time for things you love.
— Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus

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. 


It Works

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.

With Working Smarter for Mac Users, you’ll become über-productive in weeks instead of the decades it took me!!! 
— Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus

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.

It works, and I guarantee it will work for you. 


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.

Click to enlarge.

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?) 


What Readers Say

Here are a few of the nice things readers have said about Working Smarter for Mac Users:


It’s no coincidence that the day after I read this book I started working on my next book.
I’ll finish my book because of Bob’s book!
— Guy Kawasaki Chief evangelist of Canva and Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador

Like so many others have said. This book is transformational. I am a scientist that runs several clinical labs. I deal with doctors, patients and staff every day while trying to get “other” work done. The other work consists of data analysis, writing for publications etc. Clinical care is fraught with interruptions and “distractions.” Before I read this book I honestly thought there was no way to plan my day to get things done AND put out the daily fires of patient care and doctor demands. You showed me how to prioritize and your MIT idea has revolutionized my work day.

Thank you for being ADD (like me) and having the fortitude and absolute brilliance to write this book. I’ve not finished reading every page yet and will schedule it into my day until it is read cover to cover. Thank you, thank you.
— Michael L., Newburyport, MA

I discovered all the useful tips and tricks that could make my life so much easier.  Now I’m much more adept at using my Mac and far more efficient and effective.  I highly recommend Working Smarter for Mac Users; it will make you better at your job or play.

I’m serious Bob, I don’t think I’ve read another book, other than The Bible or The Book of Mormon that will have a bigger impact on my life. Thank you so much for writing this book. I think it’s your best book ever and I’ve been reading your books since 1997 when I started being an Apple Consultant.
— Jeff D. Houston, TX
