Firstly this edition is recommended for Windows 7 and Vista users, if you have Windows XP you should purchase the 4th Edition of this book.

This book makes no assumptions concerning your knowledge of computers, there are a lot of helpful 'windows' on the pages that make sure that you don't miss areas of: Caution, Tips and Notes.

It is broken down into 7 parts:

[Part 1] Getting Started: 2 Chapters
[Part 2] Using Windows: 3 Chapters
[Part 3] Upgrading and Maintaining Your System: 5 Chapters
[Part 4] Using Computer Software: 5 Chapters
[Part 5] Using the Internet: 12 Chapters
[Part 6] Communicating via the Internet: 4 Chapters
[Part 7] Exploring the Digital Lifestyle: 7 Chapters

From the start, you will be assisted in setting up a new computer. Then the book also has numerous screen shots that will help you along the way as you learn Windows from the ground up and begin to personalize it. There are also a lot of web sites provided that cover a wide area of interests.

This reading material is systematic, well laid out logically and easy to follow. It is a sure fire and will get any newbie up and running quickly.

I have been repairing computers, tutoring adults and assisting with teaching children in a K-6 environment computers. When anybody asks me for help learning, I point this book out and start them off with it. It has all the basics you need to know. You can use it for quick reference and to learn how to get around on your computer. The book is WELL worth the money you spend on it. Now there is the 5th edition it is even better yet! The 5th edition has Windows 7 for persons buying new computers. There are 38 chapters and every chapter is fully understandable not packed with a bunch of "geek" terminology but simple easy to use format. We have purchased over 15 books to learn the basics.

As a computer consultant I spend a lot of time answering questions for customers. One frequent question I get is "where can I go to learn more about my computer?" This book is one of my favorite answers to that question.

The comments I've gotten back from my customers is that they find this book easy to read and understand -- and it's understanding that is the most important part. For any self-help type of book to be useful folks need to understand what it is saying. My customers like the fact that they can take it at their own pace and not feel concerned that they will break the computer while they are trying new stuff.

Oh sure, I would love to make tons of money spending hours with my customers training them on how to use their computer, but most people don't have that kind of money these days. This book lets them get more enjoyment and use out of their computer investment.

One note, this book is written for Windows 7, so I don't recommend it for other operating systems.

It's fine if you are totally ignorant of the basics of computing, but I if you don't really know that much and know the absolute basics it's overly simple. So, if you are looking for a book that says more than the absolute basics this is the book for you. Other than that, the book is written in a entertaining style with a lot of basic information. This is a good book to get if you want the absolute basics.

I use this book for teaching seniors(age 55 and above)how to use the computer. It is an excellent resource for anyone who has a fear of using the computer. Very easy to read and follow and not a lot of technical mumbo-jumbo to confuse the Absolute Beginner. I highly recommend this book for any senior just learning to use the computer. I personally purchase this book for each of my students and they are thrilled to have a book they can understand!

The best purchase I've made since I bought the computer ! I started as a complete computer illiterate, but everything I read to gain a little knowledge assumed that I knew some basics. WRONG !!!! This book is a gem ! Read it cover to cover, or look up your question in the index...it's all written in language that the older generation can understand. The chapters are short, & at the end of each chapter is a quick guide to the info contained in that chapter. If you didn't get that info down, you will know to go back & give it a second look ! I bought 2 copies...one for me & one for my 88 year old father who got a computer for Christmas.

I recently purcahsed my first PC desktop computer and have been working from a laptop for over three years. I had been a MAC user for years but a change in jobs pointed me toward te PC. This book describes things that I wish I had known three years ago for laptops but also is helping me with what to do and not to do for the PC desktop. It is simple and to the point but somewhat fun to read for a manual/reference book. It compares laptops and desktops and Vista and XP. Haven't finished reading the book but have read several chapters and have skimmed a few more. I like the tips, stop and notes on the side of the pages--they get your attention. Would like to loan it to some friends and maybe my father but I don't want to have it out of my hands for fear of not getting it back. Guess I will have to see if there are any used or even a new one if someone wants to borrow it.
I have to say the same thing here as I did about the other beginner computer book I got on Amazon...get it if you're a beginner as I was. Don't think that you're going to learn by reading the owner's manual...chances are you won't. I have a laptop but there is such a commonality of information here so if you too have a laptop, don't let that dissuade you from getting the book. It is clear and easy to understand, even for newbees.
