only the terminally computer illiterate should get this 18 Oct. 1995
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The VAST majority of information found in this book is
stuff that the semi-knowledgable Win3.1 user will be able
to figure out on his/her own in just a few hours. Good for
folks who just bought a computer, pre-loaded with Win95; but
for anyone else, don't waste your money.

A Valuable Reference Work! 13 May 2003
By Bill Raley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are those among us that are still using Windows 95 and this book is a necessity. Everything one wants to know about W95 is here in a clearly written style. Find the answers to all your questions quickly and learn things you didn't know. Highly recommended.
'Dummies' Opens the Window on 95' 3 Aug. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The combined effort and experience of Andy Rathbone and IDG Books make for interesting, informative and entertaining reading in the 1995 release of 'Windows 95 for Dummies'. Complete with fully illustrated examples and the humor of Rich Tennant's cartoons, this worthy addition to the Dummies series leads the novice computer user through the jungle that is Windows 95, steering them away from the many 'wild beats' that lurk in the dark.

The Introduction provides a short synopsis of each section of the book, thus enabling the reader to appropriately choose their own starting point based on their level of confidence with 95. And the attention to detail, although meticulous, is not confusing to the reader. Sections related to the current topic are clearly referenced, with the Appendix and sumptuous Index providing easy access above and beyond the call of duty.

If you must read a book about Windows 95 (and who among us shouldn't?), this is the one for you
