Keir Thomas put together a great collection of simple but powerful tricks on the Mac. If you are switching from Windows to Mac you should read it. Not only will it help you to save time, you get a great introduction to features of Mac OS X you easily could miss. Since the chapters are all focused on one point only you can easily ignore all you don’t currently use. You will lose many good ideas, but you will not have any problem to follow the examples.

Even if the author says that the tips and tricks he writes in the book are really neat and most of the people don't know them... I would't really go that far. I knew 95% of the things he says in this book. Most of them, if not all of them, could be easily found in Apple dedicated websites or magazines.

Still, it's nice to have some of them compiled in one place.
