Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my wife to go with the Dell Latitude, she accused me of calling her an "Idiot" but she now understands why I bought it for her and the title doesn't means shes an idiot. Ideal for someone new to computers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful stuff 13 July 2009
Format:Paperback
Bought this for an idiot friend who's just got their first ever PC, and was both baffled and scared by it. Told her to sit down with the book, and do everything it says. I expect her to be an IT expert in no time.
