I had to ask myself if I would buy a better book when 8.1 had been out a while, but no, I'll stick with this.
It's good value for money.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
After editing I am sure that I would give it a four star rating.
1. The spelling and grammar mistakes are blatant and unexcusable. Windows is spelled incorrectly three times in the first chapter. The book is written, at best, in broken english.
2. The author infers that the reader has previous knowledge of windows. For example, in the "connections" paragraph, the author does nothing but restate exactly what is shown in the screenshot.
3. The book is disorganized. You would think there would be a logical progression to the information in the book, but instead it seems like the book is haphazardly put together, with the author putting the chapters together at random.
Overall, I cannot recomment this title. I have read through the book, even with the atrociously poor spelling and grammar. It did provide insight for me on several aspects of Windows 8.1 that I was not familiar with, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. However, because of the obvious problems I cited above, and more issues I consider nuisance issues with the book, I could only never recommend that someone else buy this book. Save your $10 and put it towards a better book.
The book provided little or no new information, but any information was hidden by the grammatical errors that made the book painful to read. Wait for an, at least adequately written book on the Windows 8.1 (with release of the RTM version to be out soon there will be plenty of other books on the topic) don't buy this one.
