Yes a good book and easy to follow. I had his dummies book on Xp so I knew more or less his style. If I had to critisize I would say it could do with a few more pictures.

A Very Good Book-But Lacking A Few Things 24 Sept. 2013
By OldSarge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have owned quite a few of the For Dummies books over the years and all have done a good job getting me where I needed to be, but at the same time, they all lack certain directions or information that would have made life even more simple when learning something new. I have used the Windows OS for a long time, but the Windows tablet by Acer was my first experience with Windows 8, so the author should assume the reader knows nothing and be very specific when talking about how to do anything from taking a photo to printing a spreadsheet. Talk about the items one might or will need if you wish to use your flash drive or external DVD/CD burner. Basically, leave nothing to chance, after all it is a For Dummies book.

Not a Windows 8 for tablets instruction manual. 1 Feb. 2014
By David Sloan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received a Dell tablet running Windows 8 for Christmas.

I have never used Windows 8; all my computers operate on Windows 7. I really needed an instruction manual for both the tablet and the operating system, something that Dell does not provide in any format (something to consider if you are contemplating purchasing a Dell Tablet. I purchased this book hoping it would teach me Windows 8 for tablets.

If you are new to windows 8, or tablets operating Windows 8, and are looking for a "windows 8 instruction manual", this book is not it! In fact on page 2, the book states "this book works best as a reference". If you already are comfortable with, or understand, Windows 8 for tablets, or Windows 8, then this is probably a good reference book.

However, If you goal is to learn and understand Windows 8 on your tablet then this book is not the answer.

If your a "Dummies" reader, you won't be disappointed 29 Jan. 2014
By Melvin Clapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Windows 8 for Tablets for Dummies" is very specific. You must have a tablet and you should have a working knoiwledge of Windows 8.
Like all "Dummies" books, this one gives a very comprehensive tutorial, covering virtually evrything you'll need to know about your tablet and how it interacts with Windows 8. And like all "Dummmies" books, it's easy to read and talks directly to you.
Read what you need and go at your own pace and you should come out knowing more than you did at the start.

Not too Late to Meet 'Eight' 22 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The significant changes from Windows 7 to Windows 8 required a book like this. Windows 8 employs many multi-fingered gestures because of its tablet-centric orientation. I have been using Windows from its inception, and Windows 8 is really different. It can displace the keyboard-and-mouse functionality I learned in favor of on-screen movements. As increasing numbers of people use tablets, this trend makes a lot of sense.

Until I got Andy Rathbone's book, I experienced Windows 8 functionality in fits and starts. I was even reluctant to demonstrate my tablet it to friends. However, by taking the different task groups in logical progression, this book has made learning Windows 8 easy and pleasurable. Thanks to this book, I can now see how a Windows 8 tablet can be a serious contender for best contemporary tablet operating system. I recommend this book to people who would like to learn Windows 8 more quickly.

Easy to Follow 28 Oct. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What can I say? I started as a 'Dummy' and not I'm not so. Sometimes the logic of a new software product gets lost in all the sparkle of the hype and pictures. This book has made that logic stand out.
