Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Alan Simpson's Windows Vista Bible is a personal, friendly, and thorough guide to Vista for a broad cross-section of users: intelligent people who aren't geeks.

Simpson's written more than 120 computer books (and taught college computing courses for years before that). Along the way, he's learned how to call your attention to what's really important -- even if it seemed minor until he got you to think about it. (Case in point: Vista's "breadcrumb trails," a.k.a. "eyebrow menus," which make navigating your folders a whole lot quicker.)

So, while Simpson certainly covers all the "usual" fundamentals of Vista, he also offers full chapters on topics that don't always get the attention they deserve. For instance: transferring files and settings from another PC and working with Vista's parental controls and family safety features. Also for instance: making the most of Vista's improved desktop "power search" capabilities; coaxing older Windows programs to run in Vista; and using Windows Meeting Space to collaborate with small groups of Vista users, wherever they are.

Perhaps best of all, every section of this book contains its own troubleshooting chapter. So you can turn here for help when you run into problems with system startup, security, customization, networking and the Internet, multimedia, file management, printing and faxing, software, hardware, performance...what else is there? Not much: This 1,100-page book is pretty darned complete. But it's written so nicely it doesn't feel anywhere close to that size, even if you actually were to read the whole thing. Bill Camarda, from the March 2007 Read Only
