Mac OS X was released in March 2001, but many components, such as Mach and BSD, are considerably older. Understanding the design, implementation, and workings of Mac OS X requires examination of several technologies that differ in their age, origins, philosophies, and roles. Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach is the first book that dissects the internals of the system, presenting a detailed picture that grows incrementally as you read. For example, you will learn the roles of the firmware, the bootloader, the Mach and BSD kernel components (including the process, virtual memory, IPC, and file system layers), the object-oriented I/O Kit driver framework, user libraries, and other core pieces of software. You will learn how these pieces connect and work internally, where they originated, and how they evolved. The book also covers several key areas of the Intel-based Macintosh computers. A solid understanding of system internals is immensely useful in design, development, and debugging for programmers of various skill levels. System programmers can use the book as a reference and to construct a better picture of how the core system works. Application programmers can gain a deeper understanding of how their applications interact with the system. System administrators and power users can use the book to harness the power of the rich environment offered by Mac OS X. Finally, members of the Windows, Linux, BSD, and other Unix communities will find the book valuable in comparing and contrasting Mac OS X with their respective systems. Mac OS X Internals focuses on the technical aspects of OS X and is so full of extremely useful information and programming examples that it will definitely become a mandatory tool for every Mac OS X programmer.

Most hardware and software companies experience cycles of success and failure, that pattern is certainly not a compelling publishing topic. When you add in the name of Apple Computer, the picture changes from ho-hum to humdinger though. Right now, Apple’s shares have surged to a 4-year high, and along with the runaway success of Apple’s iPod (10 million iPods sold as of Dec 2004, and 2 million+ units sold in the last 3 months alone), Apple stock seems poised to only increase in value. There’s a “halo” effect beginning to take hold – simple put, consumers and business people alike are so impressed with iPod’s technology and success that they’re taking a second look at other Apple products and in particular Macintosh computers. If the current trends continue, Apple will have sparked yet another revolution in the personal computer arena, and will regain ground many thought was lost for good. The Apple Way shows how this company’s steps and missteps have molded and shaped them, and what lessons the world at large can learn from Apple. Apple has emerged as a Wall Street phenomenon with its stock increasing in value some 250% in the past year Uses the proven pedagogy of the existing Way books to provide bite-sized business success maxims and Apple’s underlying guiding principles Includes lessons learned the hard way by revealing the company’s strengths and obstacles Cruikshank has played a role in developing the following M-H books: Pink Cadillac, Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell, What It Takes to Be Number One, The Essential Vince Lombardi, Get Better or Get Beaten (condensed edition), plus many others
