The author has a skill in writing for people who do not have a lot of knowledge on computers. He goes into a lot of
detail so that the average person will understand what he is talking about so that they can follow him. He even makes
Windows 8.1 understandable for me. I just wish I could have read Windows 8.0 and 8.1 before I moved on from Window 7. That would have helped me. I had trouble trying to get DVD's on play om my monitor. I can play them now but I haven't figured out how to record them on the monitor if that is possible. When a person gets older like me, things
are more difficult to understand. I would recommend this book for everyone needing help with computers.

The first chapters will help anyone who has had no, or very little, experience with computers, tablets and notebooks. The remainder covers Window 8/8.1 from basics through specific programs, with by the numbers, and illustrations. I have worked in programming and computing off and on for over 40 years but I found Windows 8.1 to be a whole new ball game. The index is very helpful for me to locate specific programs needed to run the system. Before I ordered this book I borrowed Window's 8.1 guides from the library that were adequate for getting started and compared them with Absolute Beginner's Guide (ABG). There was very little in the borrowed books that was not covered in ABG and ABG contained much more info and I could keep the borrowed books for only a limited time. I have found having ABG available as a specific item guide while working on the computer to be very helpful.

It is such an easy read. If their was a second part to it I would buy it. Their are lots of questions I still need answered. Computers are upgraded so often. It's like learning a second language for those of us who are seniors.
