As someone making the transition straight from Windows 98 to Vista, this book has been an enormous help. Prepared by David Pogue and a team of expert writers, the book is written in a highly readable style and is full of information and tips. Without this missing manual, and the reading I did of it in preparation for V-day, my first hands-on encounters with Vista (starting yesterday) would have been much more daunting. I look forward to further explorations, this manual in hand. In all, highly recommended.

I have been borrowing this manual from our local library for several months and found I couldn't do without it.So the logical step was to buy it.As the forward states,this is the manual that should have been in the box with the PC.It reads like a book, is both funny and informative and gives confidence to the user.I learnt many simple ways to operate the keyboard and programmes and when things did go wrong-voila! just reach for the manual and 90% of the time it offered a fix without the need to panic!It also opens the way to all the amazing things you can do with a PC,that I,for one didn't know existed.All in all a great buy and a good price from Amazon.
