By John D. Mandes on February 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
"Windows XP Visual Quick Tips" is an excellent reference guide for someone who needs to have facts and their finger tips as they use Windows XP, especially if it it is not their primary operating system. I suspect with the introduction of Apple's new line of computers which run both Mac OS as well as Windows XP, side by side, their will be many personal computer users who fall into this category: Users who are practically experts in Mac OS but neophytes when it comes to Windows XP (or any other version of Windows for that matter). In "Windows XP Visual Quick Tips, " author Paul McFedries has done an excellent job of selecting the most important aspects of Windows XP to share with the new Windows user thereby ending up with a handy, small book to keep at the user's side rather than a behemoth that resembles a bible. Designer Kathie S. Rickard and Illustrator Ronda David-Burroughs deserve special mention for their keen ability in complementing McFedries' text thereby greatly enhancing the book's design -- in full color with excellent screen shots that effectively complement the narrative text. Although I already knew a fair amount of the information contained in this guide, I read every page because of its layout and design. I highly recommend "Windows XP Visual Quick Tips." it will get used extensively as you familiarize yourself with, what for many Mac users, is a strange new world.

The book is too small, and the visuals have to be looked at thru a magnifying glass. I did not find this book helpful at all.
