Format: Paperback
I have read a few things by Paul Thurrott in the past and found his work easily digestible and loaded with great examples. This book is no exception.
It was a gift, and even though I don't even run XP on my machine I would feel confident using XP tools to work with my digital media with this book by my side. The subject matter may be a little simple for the real tech heads out there, but for folks just starting to play with MP3s and digital imagery up to fairly advanced users looking for some excellent tips and tricks this is a great resource.
Pick it up and join the digital revolution!
