5.0 out of 5 stars really handy 15 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found that with my new windows 8 PC I spent far too much time trying to work out how to find things and do things that were obvious on my previous vista system but not being a techy person the info online could be a bit confusing. I read through this little booklet and sorted out 2 annoying little windows 8 problems within about 5 minutes. Am very glad to have downloaded it, it is straightforward and user friendly.

Half the book was not useful or hadn't got a clue what they were on about or why would I want to do it if it didn't improve what I wanted to do , waste of money .

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninformative at Best 2 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It seems that either the author is misinformed or he wrote this book and Microsoft updated Windows 8 and made some changes, which I doubt.. The several tips I tried didn't work,(like Quick Launch), or maybe there's a difference between the 32 bit and 64 bit OS, which I doubt. In any event, I'm glad I didn't waste more then a few dollars. Either update the book, correct the errors or remove it from the market. One star is one too many

4.0 out of 5 stars Windows 8 Introduction 18 Jun 2013
By Spudman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good basic book for those considering Windows 8 installation or new to the different world of Windows 8. My first reading of the book was on a computer pad, and at times my eyes glazed over. This is no fault of the author's but because Windows 8 is so different. Even starting and closing Windows is a totally new operation.

I found it a lot less confusing to read the book on a separate device while sitting in front of the computer with Windows 8 while trying the tips firsthand.

Though this Kindle book is helpful, I've learned mostly by clicking and browsing to see where I end up. The charms on the right side of the screen especially invite searching and exploration if you want to make use of Windows 8 to the fullest.

I just bought a new laptop, going from Windows 7 to 8.1 and felt a bit overwhelmed. This book has several helpful tips that are explained well. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE - EVEN IF THEY ARE FAMILIAR WITH WINDOWS 8.
