Windows 8 is a steep learning curve for someone coming from Windows 8! This book provides clues to coping but does not seem to cover the problems the computer throws up as you work your why through it. But it could just be me!

Maran illlustrated Windows 8 5 April 2013
By Micki Mulkern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I looked at all the Windows 8 books first at a large bookstore. I compared the same chapters, ie. how to burn a CD/DVD, and others. I found this book was the easiest to follow, print is large enough for older eyes, graphics are great and most helpful. Over the years I have always bought books with good illustrations and not the Dummies books. This is my first Maran book and think it will be even more helpful after close exam of several. 5*!

End the nightmare of Windows 8 29 Sept. 2013
By de Nino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Windows 8 has a learning curve that makes you want to drop kick your computer down the road, in my humble opinion. I teach folks how to use their computers. Unfortunately, PC manufacturers do not include a 'How To' manual with their products, and the help and support feature found under programs is to technical for many people. Ruth Maran, the author of Windows Illustrated books, has done a WONDERFUL job in her book by using 3D illustrations beginning with how to turn on the computer! The concept is unique in that the reader will have the book open in front of the computer and will see on the screen the same picture in the book. They follow step by step, exactly what they are looking at in the illustration, simplifying the learning process, Each chapter is consolidated as to subject: email, internet, photos, videos, programs, and so on. There is no confusion as to where you are in a given subject. The chapter contents are listed by subject, and the index is very thorough. The author has written Windows Illustrated to be very user friendly, is not condescending and speaks to the reader as an equal.

This book does the trick!! 11 July 2013
By Rusty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You can definitely use Win 8 after reading this book. As you go along, one picks us other little tidbits while using the new OS. Still finding new things out everyday, but it is not a chore anymore to turn on the computer!! The illustrations are greatly appreciated and done well. Highly recommend.

The BEST Illustrated Windows Book Series 26 Jun. 2013
By OmegaLux - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We had been looking for the best book to assist new Windows/computer users whether it was with Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8. Having reviewed all the illustrated books on the market we have found that the Maran series were easily the best as there are beautiful easy to understand very colorful illustrations on every page (usually two per page) and step-by-step instructions for users on how to accomplish the usual tasks. Have a look inside this book and you will see why. You will never be sorry for purchasing any of the books in this series. Note: The larger "Illustrated" books" have much more information and are more comprehensive than their smaller "Guided Tour" series. Congratulations Maran family for an excellent product!

I used this book for XP and now Windows 8. I need to specifically SEE what instructions words are saying. Excellent especially for nervous older users.
