Customer Review

VINE VOICEon December 23, 2011
Who hasn't see a "... for Dummies" book? But who has actually picked one up and started reading? Well this is the first one I've ever read and I really quite enjoyed it.

The book is very well-structured, with key chapters from popular books, split into sections where the chapters all more or less have something in common. They did make me think, sometimes, especially the chapter from Sex for Dummies (by Doctor Ruth) and the chapter from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Dummies, which really hit home.

However, if you do know a bit about the subject in question - for me in this book, DOS and Facebook were two - then it can seem a little, well, patronising. Just skip through, you won't miss out.

As a lead in, however, it works perfectly. I've just downloaded British History for Dummies and Canadian History for Dummies, based on the incredibly accessible and entertaining chapters in this book.
