I have an ongoing quest to learn AppleScript, and although I’ve made a few very simple scripts, often largely just “stolen” from other people’s existing scripts, I’ve never really come to grips with Applescript. Now, though, I’ve started reading the beta of Chapter 5 (1.7Mb PDF) from Adam Goldstein’s AppleScript: The Missing Manual and available at the website. It makes sense, I can follow it easily, it’s practical. This book’s going on my wishlist.
AppleScript: The Missing Manual is every beginner’s guide to learning the Macintosh’s ultimate scripting tool: AppleScript. Through dozens of hands-on scripting examples, this comprehensive guide ensures that anyone including novices can learn how to control Mac applications in timesaving and innovative ways. Thanks to AppleScript: The Missing Manual, the path from regular Mac fan to seasoned scripter has never been easier.
