5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow
If like me you and technololology have an awkward relationship, then you probably don't respond well to instructions provided by manufacturers, that's if you even try to look at them. This is a great book for anyone making the migration to wondows 8. Everything
is explained nice and easy, and everything is illustrated. I recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars clearly written
The book is good - though I have not worked through it all. Its main drawback is the kindle format. The book would be very much better in colour on my tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed book, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Migrating to Windows 8 - For computer users without a touch screen, coming from XP, Vista or Windows 7 (Kindle Edition)
You need a new PC, you go to the shop thinking you know all about it and find yourself faced with an interface that makes little sense to you. Why, Microsoft, why? I am a big fan of Dr Andy's writing but I am especially pleased by this book. Essential reading for anybody "upgrading" to Windows 8.

This review is from: Migrating to Windows 8 - For computer users without a touch screen, coming from XP, Vista or Windows 7 (Kindle Edition)
When I got my new computer with Windows 8 I was totally confused.
Nothing was the same.
I muddled along for a couple of days and then purchased this book.
"Hey Presto" most of it makes sense.
Very useful buy!!

This review is from: Migrating to Windows 8 - For computer users without a touch screen, coming from XP, Vista or Windows 7 (Kindle Edition)
Windows 8 is very difficult to "migrate" to and requires clear explanations from someone who has used it and understands the difficulties we bump into.
I thought Dr. Williams did this to great effect, and in simple, understandable language. I keep it by me for whenever I Forget how to do things!

This review is from: Migrating to Windows 8 - For computer users without a touch screen, coming from XP, Vista or Windows 7 (Kindle Edition)
I give this five stars because it was great value, and principally because it is so clear and easy to follow.
Did not like Windows 8 initially, and still not a great fan, however sitting with this book NAD working through the various screens was very easy to follow.
