3.0 out of 5 stars You can't make a silk purse from a sows ear 28 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is difficult to divorce rating this book from rating Windows 8.1 since writing a guide to the worst version of Windows ever will inevitably lead to some mud sticking. If like me you have to upgrade your laptop now and you don't want to jump ship to Apple or Linux then Microsoft have the whole market sewn up and you will get Windows 8.1. This book makes a reasonable attempt to explain what is neither plain nor simple and has somewhat helped me get through what has been the most excruciating computing experience of my life. If you can wait until Microsoft see sense and revert to something better then do so.

I purchased this book to help me burn photos to a dvd but there was no where in the book to help me. I had to make a trip to a well know supermarket for help.

If you like reading all the help sections for apps on computers the do not buy this, If on the other hand you just want to get on with it, then this book is a godsend. I previously bought the same book for Windows XP when I upgraded and found it very handy as this is turning out to also

5.0 out of 5 stars A good reference point 16 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Easy to read and a good back up for a new windows experience. It is expertly put together, and the sections make it a good reference guide, as I have found it when looking up for new or unfamiliar ways of working from my old system.
