“Mark Munro brings clear language and keen organization to the exposition of AppleScript. However, this book is more than an excellent reference guide to the AppleScript language, it is a passionate paean to automation and efficiency.”

John Thorsen Jr.

“This is an awesome learning tool. It helped me tremendously. It is now becoming an excellent reference too. The price made the purchase more than worthwhile.”

Chill1960, Amazon Review

“It covers advanced topics like standardization, modular coding, and open-ended programming at a depth that few, if any, other AppleScript books have covered. If you read the whole thing and participate in the coding exercises in the final chapters, you come away with a fully functioning image-manipulation solution that is modular and expandable and can serve as a model for other advanced projects you may not have thought you could write in AppleScript.”
