as it states in the first chapter, this is not an upgrade book for someone who has been using windows for years. its a book for newbies and for people who have neverr touched a computer, he says on the first page of the introduction - if you can understand the following, this book is not for you : "right-drag the selected items to the destination folder, drop , and then choose Copy Here or Move here, depending on which you want to do, from the shortcut menu". This is a book for people who can read the above sentence and honestly say, " I have no idea what he's talking about". having used this book It can answer any question you need on the user side of XP. a good user guide and reference for learners

Like others in the 'Bible' series,this book is beautifully written, using simple language. It contains many clear illustrations which will greatly assist both the newcomer and the more advanced user. All of the many components of Windows XP are seperated into sections, making them easier to understand. I thought that I already had a good knowledge of XP, but this book taught me many new tricks.

I bought and read this book a year ago when I first bought a computer, it proved helpful then and now nearly a year later I am re reading it, ok not word for word, and it is proving very helpful. Some of the info that I didn't understand then I do now! It is a useful reference book, and well worth getting!
