5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I almost never bought....., September 20, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Windows 7 Secrets (Paperback)
So I never ever purchase computer books - or technically any books to try to learn new technology. I have a tendency to just dive in and go for it.

I have listened to Paul and Leo on their Podcast for years now and finally broke down with Windows 7 and purchased the book (all 8 lbs of it - thank you amazon prime for free shipping)

So I dove into the book and it is great to see that Paul does not mince words and maintains the same air he does on the weekly podcast. I like the tell it like it is content delivery and when I read a book like this I want to be told all the cool things or have a way to just get to the important items and this books layout does this by clearly makring the tips and secrets vs. joust general topic information.

Well worth the money - even if it was just for the sections on UI tips and tricks - and this is coming from someone who have been using Windows 7 since the first Beta.

Well done Paul.... you deserve to take some time off for putting together an actual helpful book that is actually full of information people can use vs. just an author that pats themselves on the back chapter after chapter. Plus the inclusion of links to content that will be updating as we push toward the release date is even more helpful.
