A long winded, dry and disappointing book. Being new to Vista I was looking for something to help me understand the new features and allow me to make the most of this new operating system. Instead I got a detailed rehash of all of Microsoft's operating systems with a sprinkling of Vista thrown in. I think they were trying for the "most pages" record so they threw in everything they could think of. Glad I got it cheap. It won't bother me to throw it away.

I am use to the old Bibles that were like 2000 pages and gave you everything you could ever want to know and then some in a format almost 1.5x's this ones. I flipped through it when I got it and its pretty much gathering dust. There was so much left out of this book that I really cant see how they could call it a bible.
