Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Lately, we've seen a lot of full-color, "easy/visual" guides to Windows Me. We've found one to be especially easy to understand, especially fun to use, and especially well-focused on the tasks you're likely to care about. It's Microsoft's own: Microsoft Windows Me at a Glance.

This book's developers and authors have done a great job avoiding clutter -- the pitfall that often makes "visual" introductory guides hard to use. You'll never struggle to figure out what steps to follow in what order: Everything's nicely numbered and neatly arranged. Color isn't just used for screen shots: It's used to help organize the material, set apart tips and cross-references, and make it easier to find the chapter you're looking for. Every task fits on its own single page or two-page spread: No endless, convoluted procedures here.

That's form. The content is equally solid, and wide-ranging -- from the Calculator to Pinball, the new Windows Movie Maker to MSN instant messenger service. You'll walk through Windows Me's steps for setting up a home network -- even connecting older Windows 95 or 98 machines. Windows Me gives you plenty of ways to accomplish the same tasks. The authors have worked hard to present the easiest ways. You'll just plain enjoy learning Windows Me from this book. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant and writer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.
