It's the age of the computer so there are tons of how-to computer books out there. But they all have one or two things in common: they are usually a deep read that takes you into the philosophy of using computers (don't care how or why, I just want to do) or they are a soup-to-nuts encyclopedia of information (too much information).

Neither of those serves my purpose when I am having a problem with Windows 7 or Microsoft Word, Excel, or other Microsoft product. I usually just want to get through a software challenge I'm having so I can move on to whatever I want to do like writing this review or doing my family expenses.

In particular, almost everyone needs a book that is simple enough so that when the father-in-law calls on a Friday night with some kind of "my file is missing" problem he can have somewhere else to turn first (Not that I mind your calls Dad, but that's why I bought one of these books for you'.).

Until now there have been very few "just show me how to do this" kinds of books for new computer users, family members, or even so-called experienced computer users like me.

I was pleasantly surprised when "Priceless Computer Tips at your Fingertips" by Sudhir Diddee was recommended to me by a friend in the computer industry. Here's where it's different from other books of its type. It was specifically designed to just tell you exactly what to do with a little hint or tip. Quick frankly it's just like having a computer expert next to you that will just tell you step by step how to get something done.

How do I connect a projector to a Windows computer? How do I check the spelling in an Outlook email? How do I select a whole spreadsheet in Excel? How do I right align a paragraph or how do I create a Hyperlink in Word?

How can I describe this book... okay, have you ever had a kitchen tool that you didn't know you needed, but someone gave it to you, and now you wonder how you ever lived without it? I work on a PC all day, and I lived without this book -- but it sure hasn't been pretty. Who knew that Microsoft has already created neat tricks in Windows and Office for things I've been doing the hard way? This fun little book is showing me slick ways of speeding up those repetitive tasks, along with some really fun things I never knew Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, or Excel could do. I promise, you'll be slapping your forehead and saying, "Oh, man, I LOVE THAT FEATURE!!!" It's saving me time and effort at work every day so that I can get on with my real life. I'm giving it to friends, family and coworkers. (ESPECIALLY coworkers.)

I've been a serious Windows user for over two decades, and I thought I knew everything worth knowing on the subject. Similarly, I'm a long-time MS Office user and rely on it for my business. Sudhir Diddee covers some ground in "Priceless Computer Tips at Your Fingertips" that I knew backwards and forwards. But in a surprising number of instances, he served up methods and suggestions that were either new to me or that I'd never really considered harnessing before.

For example, one of the Windows tips is on using Windows 7 Libraries for our mountains of home media (photos, videos, etc.). I'd heard of Libraries and knew what they were. I'd even dabbled with using them once or twice. But Diddee brought a different perspective and usage scenario to my attention, and I can see how it would make a big difference to my family's ability to enjoy our files. My wife constantly complains about my media filing system. Diddee's advice will keep everyone satisfied.

Other passages I found similarly useful include creating templates in Outlook, sheet hide/unhide in Excel, switching between document pages in Word, and searching within a screen image in OneNote. I had no idea that was possible, and I use OneNote daily.

Honestly, I worried that $9.99 might be spendy for an somewhat short ebook, especially when I knew at least half of the tips even before purchasing. But here's the IT manager's way of looking at this: Say you only find ten tips in the whole book that you didn't already know and can put to use. Also assume that each tip might save you a mere ten seconds per week. (I suspect your average will be much higher.) That's 100 seconds saved on a weekly basis, or nearly an hour and a half in the first year alone. How much do you make per hour?

I picked up this book as a handy reference to Windows, Office, Outlook and other computing tasks thinking it would be a convenient way to jog my memory about short-cuts, but I've found myself learning something new every time I open it. Whether you go through from the first page to last or just dip into it, Mr. Diddee's book always prove useful and interesting. It's priceless.

This is a great book for novice and experts alike. If you are more on the expert side a number of the tips will be ones you knew about, but is a great refresher for using them. For me personally, there were a great many new items that as very experienced user were new to me.

Whether known or new, the book is full of tips that are an extremely easy read with great screenshots and examples.

I'd recommend it to anyone that spends a few hours of each work day in Microsoft Office apps.
