Description this book Apple Training Series: AppleScript Guide to Learning AppleScript (Apple Pro Training Series) [FREE] PDF files.
I bought this book last night and after having only read the first chapter I was able to determine what was wrong with my UI script, which was quite amazing since I had already spent hours researching the problem on the web. In hindsight - I should have bought this book rather than waste my time through trial and error.
The book is very simple to understand and there are examples right from the get go. Sure, some of the examples might appear repetitive but isn't that how we all learn! I love AppleScript and this book and I am so glad I did not listen to the one negative comment about this book which seems to be by someone trying to peddle other books which are now out of date.
It's very helpful. I've learned a lot and I really appreciate the way in which the information is presented. AppleScript has update since the book was published, however you can see updated versions of code on a companion site, and it really hasn't changed that much. Only a few commands. I still gave it 5 stars, because the book was written a couple years ago and you can still find the updates. If you want to learn or reinforce your AppleScripting, this is a great start! I didn't know about AppleScripts before.
Its a really great book to develop scripting skills if you are a Mac user.
I can automate pretty much anything on Mac with AppleScripts. I haven't read it since i've purchased but I use it mainly as a reference. I am mac support engineer and this book came in handy for scripting automated tasks that i need to do to 's of mac's when rolling out. Great book for learning AppleScript Bought this years ago and refer to it often. Explanations and clarifications that make sense. Before buying, I read all the reviews for this book and all of the reviews for many of the other competing books Neuburg's O'Reilly book, Goldstein's 'Missing Manual', Sanderson's A-Press 'Learn Applescript' and a few others I've forgotten along the way.
I was a bit put off by some of the 5-star reviews for this one, particularly the one by the guy that knows the author, and others that clearly indicated they were all familiar with AS already. What the sample chapter exemplifies is the teaching approach used throughout the book.
Unlike one of the other reviewers of this title who complains 'its repetitive,' I welcome that as a learner. As a teacher in a completely different sphere than computer programming , I can also attest that there are two general principles in learning any skill that all educators know: Think playing the piano, or guitar, or driving a car.
No one gets good at these things by reading about them they need to learn by doing and no one gets good at these things without doing them repetitively the old cliche 'practice makes perfect' is about as true as it gets in education.
That is the first principle behind this book from the first chapter onwards. You are writing and running scripts on almost every page, not wading through reams of boring theory. Whatismore, unlike a lot of other books on programming languages I've looked at and given up on this book doesn't sucker you with a few easy chapters at the beginning and then ramp up the difficulty level once you've bought into it.
The style and approach is consistent throughout. The second principle behind this book is to teach concepts by way of an extended example - again, a fundamental pedagogic method. So yes - as someone complained - most of the example scripts, at least in the first half of the book, concern Finder, which you probably aren't interested in programming, but that is irrelevant.
The author uses the Finder to teach the standard suite and main libraries such as system events and image events, most of which you're likely to use in any kind of complex applescript programming.
More importantly, he uses it to teach the syntax of the language and the underlying concepts that all scriptable apps must conform to. He doesn't gloss over the difficulties of Applescript or its inconsistencies, but nor does he dwell on them which was my impression of the Neuburg book based on the sample chapter.
He teaches you about many of the pitfalls, and occasionally he'll throw in a script and point out why it doesn't work. Some of the main inconsistencies are pointed out and ways to get round them. But again, the examples are illustrating principles and concepts that will often apply elsewhere. Is this book really for beginners another complaint I saw in the reviews?
It's hard to imagine how anyone could think this requires any prior knowledge of programming, but this is a claim you can verify for yourself by looking at the sample chapter.
Finally, this book is extremely comprehensive and very good value. I'm using this book on Mountain Lion, and even though the book was written for Leopard, it is still entirely relevant and accurate to what I see on my machine.
The only caveat I'm going to offer on this book is this: But if you actually want to learn Applescript by using Applescript, I doubt there's a better book out there.
