This is a great book for learning the Surface Tablet and Windows 8.1. 27 Jun 2014
By Ralph E. Vaughn - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book covers just about everything you need to know for a Surface Tablet and using the touchscreen interface. It goes through the Surface Pro 2 and Windows 8.1. However, Microsoft has already started shipping the Surface Pro 3. Mr. Rathbone will be kept busy just keeping up with the various releases of the Surface Tablet.

I think most everything in the book can be related to the new Surface Pro 3. Good Book.
