Windows 8 forced onto me with the purchase of a new laptop. O S may be OK for hand held touch screen devices but not appropriate for laptops or desktops, and certainly not intuitive. A reasonable guide is required in order to save time as one struggles through the morass. The book differentiates between the desktop mode (which will accept legacy applications ) and the flashy metro mode. A fairly detailed and useful guide.

Interesting, but lacking in detail. I was looking for something that would give more specific guidance. It was clear on the question of the opening screen and the uselessness of its icons for serious use, and that the desktop was the sensible way of using Windows 8. Without this guide it might have taken me a while to have discovered that.

Easy to read and informative .... great help with having Windows 8 for the first time ....... step by step style makes it ideal for more mature readers who haven't been brought up alongside the computer era.

This book was useful as a start, also cheap for the type of content. I would reccoment it as an introduction to Windows 8
