Format: Paperback
As an IT professional, I was after a book that cut through the basics and told me what I needed to know about Vista; rather than having to review pages and pages of extraneous content on Microsoft's web pages. This book delivers on its promise, exposing all the underlying technologies that comprise this release of Windows. The sections on Security and Installation were particularly useful to me, but I also enjoyed learning about the new media capabilities of Media Center, Photo Galley and DVD Maker. All in all, this is a great read, easily digestible and a great start for anyone, professional or otherwise, who needs to use Vista.

I was surprised by the number of Vista books already on the market and really wasnt sure which book to look at but then I saw this one and recognised the authors from other books I have so thought i would give this a try.

And I am very glad I did! It covers everything you want to know and more. Well worth the money.

Format: Paperback
This is the only Vista manual I have at the moment. It gets you right into the features of the operating system. It also devotes considerable time on command line operations. Being an old time DOS user as well as a Linux user, I love that stuff. I think any intermediate level computer user who has Vista would like this book. Beginner computer users might want to buy a more basic companion book along with this one.

This book assumes some knowledge of computer-tise. Which is why I like it. It doen't waste a lot of time on basic definitions found in more basic books.

I also want to say that having been a long time Microsoft Windows hater, I absolutely love, 'Windows Vista', for home use.

Format: Paperback
This book spent a lot of time cosmetic differences between Visa and XP along with information on how to perform use tasks that should be obvious to anyone prepared to kick around. What it lacks is any in depth information on the new scripting engine of any of the subjects needed to maintain Visa machines in a networked environment. Good for you average desktop user. A big disappointment if you are a sys-admin looking for in-depth technical information prepare to be disappointed
