This wife/husband team have produced a winner. They explain technical stuff in simple terms, and plenty of illustrations. I wish they had published a couple of months sooner so that I could have made an easy transition into a somewhat complex machine. This is a must book for those who are wondering what this phenomenal machine can and will do in the coming years. Microsoft might be smart and include this grand tome with each XBOX 360. Of course they won't so for those who are still, like me and my wonderful wife, trying to figure out the whys and wherefores of the XBox 350, it's a must buy and read(keep it handy while you figure out what Microsoft has done to improve on its already grand product..
