Windows 7 Plain & Simple
on 10 September 2011
On the plus side, well presented book and arranged in useful order. Helpful for newcomers to Win 7. Does deal with most of the functions in win 7 and the colour pages and layout is good.
On the negative points, the book is not too helpful when it comes to explaining Internet Explorer (I know this is a win 7 book, but a lot of folk will be using it with IE) and the difference between 32 and 64 bit versions. This caused me a lot of phone calls, as my Norton Internet security would not operate all its features unless the 32-bit version was selected.
Finally, as said by other reviewers the book is poorly bound in landscape format and the pages easily separate from the binding even if you leave it open on the desk overnight- not good and spoils and otherwise comprehensive guide. All considered a good book if you take great care in handling it.
