Windows 8.1 Inside Out 1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

This book provides little useful information. I bought this book based on my previous experence with the inside out series from Microsoft press. They call this book for advanced users I don't know if it is even up to being a beginners book.

The overview for this book says "You're beyond the basics...". Trouble is this book is written for a novice. I did not get one new piece of information from this book. A total bust if you are looking for additional detail. I've purchased "Inside Out" books before and have been pleased, but that will not happen again.
