When my friend first got her new Windows 8 computer, we'd assumed I'd help her learn it just as I had for years before. Ha! My 15+ years of PC/Windows experience was of little use with this new thing. In the past I'd never needed a book just to learn a new operating system -- Then came Windows 8; something totally unlike its predecessors. That dang screen alone is enough to make your head spin.
"Easy" does an excellent job of demystifying a system that, to me, is unnecessarily convoluted. At the very least, it gives the user a good start. Without this book, I'd probably still be staring at the Windows 8 screen, wondering what in the world to do after hitting the On switch.
Many folks enjoy "playing around" with computers. Not me. I want to learn as quickly as possible, with minimal (preferably no) frustration. Easy Computer Basics did the job. Though this book might seem too basic in some aspects, it does make an excellent springboard to prepare for later learning more complex tasks in Win 8. And it kept my cuss words to a minimum
I had barely conquered the basics of 7. The book explaining plus showing
pictures helped me make the change over. Unless you have a kid to help you
then you need this book. LOL
