Format: Paperback
This book is an alright registry book. Unfortunatly it doesn't really get into actually editing registry entrys until late in the book. This book might be OK for users new to messing with the registry but if you have been doing it for a while and want to more advanced stuff with the registry I'd look elsewhere. I will say though, it has a trick for showing your computer on a network as multiple computers, that's kinda cool.
