Earlier this week, I plugged two “Take Control” e-books on fonts and the Mac. Today’s e-mail brought something even more exciting: a book on how best to run Windows on Intel-based Macs.

Macintosh users interested in expanding the capabilities of their Intel-based Macs can now find the practical advice they need to install Windows on a Mac with the 104-page “Take Control of Running Windows on a Mac.” The ebook was written by installation expert Joe Kissell, whose ebooks on upgrading to new versions of Mac OS X have set the standard for answering the real-world questions and concerns that users have when contemplating a major system update. “Take Control of Running Windows on a Mac” looks in detail at all the possibilities, including the virtualization software Parallels Desktop and Q, along with Apple’s dual-boot solution, Boot Camp. For each option, Kissell provides step-by-step instructions for installing the software and for installing Windows, and he goes further by explaining how to make mice and keywords behave properly, share files between the Mac and Windows, and avoid Windows malware. He also explains the various ways of acquiring Windows, a topic made confusing by Microsoft’s numerous licensing options and activation mechanism.

The ebook costs $10, and comes with a coupon worth $10 off the price of Parallels Desktop, rendering the book free for readers who want to use the highly regarded virtualization software to run Windows.

I haven’t read the book yet, but I know a little about running Windows on the Intel-based Mac, and a little about author Joe Kissell. Joe’s a great, great Mac writer, and the issue of running Windows on Macs is more nuanced than you might think. I plan to read this book soon, and even without seeing it, I can heartily suggest that you at least look at the free sample.
