Take Control Tackles Thanksgiving Dinner -- A quick note for our Canadian friends: if you're thinking about Thanksgiving on October 9th, take a look at our just-released "Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner." It's a very cool experiment in applying Joe Kissell's skills in breaking a complex task into easily accomplished steps. Joe has walked thousands of people through upgrading Mac OS X, setting up backups, and maintaining their Macs, but those tasks are nothing compared to hosting Thanksgiving dinner. We've all put a ton of work into designing the ebook to help with planning and cooking a huge meal, including a 19-page "Print Me" file that contains shopping lists, recipes to tape up in your kitchen, and customizable schedules to keep everything on track. You can think of the ebook as a "Getting Things Done" approach to Thanksgiving, or a geek's guide to the most complex meal most of us will ever prepare. (If you're in the U.S., you have some time before worrying about Thanksgiving, and for anyone elsewhere in the world, Thanksgiving dinner is mostly an opportunity for culinary tourism.)
