4.0 out of 5 stars very handy to have around 24 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i decided to put this on my Kindle so that it could be used as reference tool and instruction manual for people when setting up or upgrading new PC's. i have to say that it has been of more use than i thought it would be, having it to hand with the relevant page open has shortened a few calls and provided some much needed confidence to new owners of Windows 8.1

Well worth the download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview 14 Nov. 2013
By Alan E
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I would have liked to have seen more content that was specific to the enhancements in Windows 8.1, this book was available when the latest version of Windows was released, which is commendable. Most of the content in this book is relevant, but some does apply to Windows 7 and above. However, overall this book definitely deserves better than an average rating.

Its Ok but for many can be difficult to get to grips with as at first appearance it's very different from previous versions of Windows but once you do figure it out it's not that different personally now as Windows 9 is due out next year I would wait & upgrade to that is it looks from the leaked videos I've seen that it is much more user friendly.
