Amazon.com: 3.5 out of 5 stars  2 reviews
3.0 out of 5 stars By now - this book is an obsolete 13 Oct 2013
By Carpe Diem! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With Windows 8.1 version , this book is in my humble opinion an obsolete. Too many ingredients in the operating system have been modified or added so not all of it is relevant or accurate anymore . When I bought the book it was of great help in understanding how Windows 8 works. But for now - get an updated book
