MacVoices #14178: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Automating Your Mac

Joe Kissell  has just written a book that can help everyone, no matter what they do, be more productive. Take Control of Automating Your Mac. Joe explains why he wanted this book to be an approachable guide to one of the most intimidating aspects of Mac use, and why it is your next step in becoming a more efficient Mac user. Starting out with simple examples, Joe takes us through some simple examples of automation and the utilities that make them easy. And no, you won’t be writing a single line of code. This Take Control book includes $60 worth of discount coupons for many of the utilities Joe talks about to help you get started.
