Top Customer Reviews
The writers cover virutally everything that is new to Vista and many things that are old hat to previous Windows versions. It's 600 pages of information that almost any user of Windows Vista will want to keep close by, as a handy reference source.
It is too early in the life of the Vista operating system to declare this book the end-all for Vista users, but it provides a singularly strong start.
I was correct, it's well written and he was able to pick up a few things right away, money well spent.
He gives clear explanations, not in computerese, so it is easy most of the time to follow his meanings and suggestions.
Highly recommend this book. May also be useful for the next version of Windows that will probably be here sometime late this year or early next.
