5.0 out of 5 stars Windows Phone 7 for DuMMIES (smart) January 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Must book before/after you buy Windows Phones. For a penny. Of course I paid $3.99 shipping & handling. No body pickup pennies on the sidewalks nowadays. Heavy duty paper created natural looks excellent pictures (screen captures from Windows Pnone) and graphics. I myself hate the fonts, style, approach of the DuMMIES series books but this book is worth original $24.99 US. One thought: those cartoons by Rich Tennant... The author did one deed. One cartoon I still remember, old wife is at desktop keyboard, ugly potbelly bare chested boxer briefed big-footed husband lifting an iron at his iron-board to PRESS keys in a key-ring. Says "Press a Key?". (sort of similar effect)
One more nice thing about this book, it is "IN FULL COLOR". This is the only the DuM series book in Full color, bright shiny heavy duty paper.
Thanks author Bill Hughes, Wiley Publishing, Inc. et al. And who gave me this opportunity to buy the best deal in the West.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and helpful December 18, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm almost seventy-five, and learning new skills to keep up-to-date is necessary. While I chafe at the appelation "dummies", it certainly is accurate in my case, and the book has helped eliminate the mystery of the Windows Phone.
