5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for Oldies! 18 Feb 2014
By Cynth
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is great...me being a silver surfer finds computer jargon and new programs difficult so changing to Windows 8.1 was horrendous for me. This book and video has made life so much easier as the wording is easy to understand. I don't hesitate recommending this to everyone old or young...go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful guide 18 Jan 2014
By Dotty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just bought a new laptop which came with Windows 8. After all the bad press I was rather worried about it, and all at sea after many years of using XP. This book has helped me to get to grips with the operating system and I now think it is not as bad as many reviewers make out. Very helpful guide.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This edition of Windows, and being a pensioner, is so different to any other OS that this book is a lifeline.
Every aspect is explained in a one to one manner that I have had very few problems and I am working my way through and enjoying every moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not enough indexing to find answers quickly 13 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The trouble with all these books is that they force you to read through a lot you do not want to know and do not answer questions to which you need answers.

I have only had this for a short time and found it to have clearer instructions than a well known fortnightly computer magazine.
I have not looked at the DVD yet.
