Although this book has a wholly different author than the more mainstream 'Windows 8 for Dummies' book, it is both similar and different at the one time.
Windows 8 has seen several changes to its approach, interface and content that together make it a rather different product than Windows 7 or any other precedent. In the main, moving from one version to another previously did not always entail a major relearning of the product. Windows 8 has changed that and there are sufficient differences not only to confuse the older user but also many of the younger, too. This book makes it its purpose to clarify and explain those changes.
Although the book is aimed at the 'older' reader, it could suit anyone over 35 years of age or any who find other titles a little too complex. It is an introduction and not a complete and comprehensive reference book that covers absolutely everything and all of them in total detail, nor is it intended to be or suggested as being. It will certainly serve as a first choice title but something else will be needed should needs later develop.
Recommended as an easy-to-use introduction to Windows 8.
