About the Publisher

TidBITS Publishing Inc., publisher of the Take Control book series and TidBITS Web site, was incorporated in 2007 by co-founders Adam and Tonya Engst.

Adam and Tonya are known in the Apple world as writers, editors, and speakers. They have been creating Apple-related content since they started the online newsletter TidBITS in 1990.

In TidBITS, you can find the latest Apple news, plus read reviews, opinions, and more. TidBITS is the oldest continuously published digital publication on the Internet, and it was the first Internet publication ever to accept advertising, back in 1992. Maybe someday Google will say thank you.

This is but one of many Take Control titles! Most of our books focus on the Mac and OS X, but we also publish titles that cover iOS, along with general technology topics.

You can buy Take Control books from the Take Control online catalog as well as from venues such as Amazon and the iBooks Store. But it’s a better user experience and our authors earn more when you buy directly from us. Just saying…
