    Putting the complex to rest...

    Windows 7 Quicksteps by Marty Matthews lives up to the marketing terms on its cover: Easy, Illustrated, and How-to. The format divides the operating system into ten chapters, which are then broken down into short sets of steps for the most relevant information. While not every nook and cranny of the OS is covered, for the non-geek it provides the information you want without wading thru pages of geek-speak. The tone of the author is that of a fondly remembered teacher. The colored illustrations are outstanding and help a lot bringing a "mind's eye" to the information. In any case, if you're looking for a good primer on this new OS, which looks to be a winner, you won't be disappointed with this book.

    Good reference. This book is easy to read and easy to follow.

    I really like Chapter 7 "Working with Multimedia" and Chapter 10 "Using Networking". This book explain things in simple language and good QuickSteps examples. I wish it comes in a spiral format so I can open it and it stays open!

    Great Resources for everyday users

    Windows 7 by Marty Matthews is the newest in a series of books called QuickSteps. It is a step-by-step instruction of the most common tasks a user will need to know. This edition is geared for the home use audience. If you are wanting to use this book as a resource in a corporate environment some Windows 7 task react differently on a computer that are joined to a domain. That being said, it is well a done resource that is loaded with full color illustrations.
