The publisher couldn’t say as much on the cover if it weren’t true!

OS X Yosemite For Dummies is the latest revision and has been, once again, completely updated to include all the tasty OS X goodness in Yosemite. In other words, this edition combines all the old, familiar features of previous editions — but is once again updated to reflect the latest and greatest offering from Apple as well as feedback from readers.
