This book is poorly written, full of errors, and superficial. It is cheaply bound. The page count is inflated with screen shots and step-by-step instructions for Windows utilities. The computer will lead you through the steps. What you need to know is what effect choosing an option will have. I had the feeling the book was hastily thrown together and tries to cover subject matter that is broader than the author's expertise.
