I started jotting down the design tricks and technical solutions I discovered, and when
these notes became too numerous to keep track of, I turned them into a blog, I Work in Pages.
Soon, I was... More > sharing tips with Mac users all over the world, and eventually I was approached to
expand the blog into this book.
It's not a manual. In fact, I don't even think of it as technical. I prefer to call it a "Renaissance
exercise". It is for those who, like myself, enjoy discovering that it is possible to do what may
have seemed impossible only yesterday—or even a few minutes ago. Just like the great men of
the Renaissance did.
Above all, this book concentrates on the design and production of print publications and on
using graphic tools in iWork to create sophisticated images. I mostly cover Pages, but the
main tools, menus, and techniques are the same for the other two programs in the suite. If
you are interested in keeping your quality high but your costs low, this book shows you how.< Less

The ink was barely dry on my copy of Lion Server For Dummies when Apple
announced Mountain Lion. In Lion Server For Dummies, I said that I would
never write another book. People took me seriously. A... More > reviewer at Amazon
said that my pledge was the best part of Lion Server. I suspect that this is not
the case, but I’m not completely unbiased on this subject.
In the past, the time between Apple revisions of its operating system was
just long enough to make me forget how much work it is to write one of
these books. But Lion Server For Dummies wasn’t even six months old when
Apple announced Mountain Lion. Naturally, I was hesitant to take on the new

offered to pay me, so I put aside the humiliation of deceiving my readers and
