I love the Maran Illustrated series, because explains in detail and shows you the screen just the way it would show in your computer. For those who like to see what they are learning, instead a reading a bunch of pages, thats the book to learn from. I used on Vista, XP and now on 7. 'Since I am not a techie, I like things simplified.

Because I'd used Maran Illustrated books for my own computer upgrades from Windows 97 to Windows Vista I knew I wanted this for my 13 yr. old grandson's new laptop. Every single page has a color picture of your desktop along with very clear, simple directions to not only get where you want but what you should be seeing while getting there.This is especially helpful for use with new Windows operating systems or for those of us who want to know the answer NOW without spending lots of time trying to figure it out. Simply look in the index for the application you want and go to that page for colorful,clear instructions and match up what you see in the book with what's on your computer's screen. Great resource-the only one you'll need. Saves lots of time and frustration. 100% recommended!

Once I found the books by Maran Graphics, I choose nothing else. They are so much easier to read and understand than other books that are suppose to teach a the average layman. They are written so that a layman can understand and learn the computer/software basics.

The illustrations are clear and the text is concise. This is a perfect book if you are pressed for time (or impatient). It takes you step-by-step through the apps in Windows 7. This book is a real time-saver and is especially helpful for the beginning or intermediate PC user. I much prefer this format to the "Dummies" books.

Ruth Maran's MARAN ILLUSTRATED GUIDED TOUR: WINDOWS 7 is the perfect pick for any Windows user who wants a visual approach rather than wading through lengthy text. It packs in hundreds of color screen shots and covers all the new Windows 7 features, making it a 'must' for any general Windows reference collection.

This appears to be a well thought out book on navigating Windows 7! I really like that the pages are all in color,and you can see just what one needs to do to get the job done!! I am currently using XP,which will no longer be supported after April.
Anyone using the system will have to upgrade. I wanted to get a heads up on getting into this new version.I do think that this book will get me there! Thank you.

This book on Windows 7 has helped me do some things. Rather than trying to understand the built in help in Win7 I can go to this book and get a method that works. So far every question I have had has been answered by this book.

This book is very easy to follow and especially nice for beginners. This is also great for older people who have trouble using the computer. It doesn't go into great depths but it covers the basics and can get the beginner up and going.
