Though I'm not a rank beginner, I certainly don't consider myself to be computer literate, and this book is written so that even I can understand it. The illustrations that accompany the text lay out everything in such a simple manner, anyone can follow it. I find myself referring to again and again, for those jobs that I do only occasionally, to refresh my memory.
