The Barnes & Noble Review
Got a new PC this fall? Getting one for the holidays? Or maybe your great aunt is finally joining the digital revolution? We've got the accessory that really ought to come standard: PCs for Dummies, Eighth Edition. Dan Gookin invented the For Dummies series, and over a decade later, there's still nobody you'd rather learn PCs from.

Of course, there's plenty of new technology to cover in this edition (which is one reason this might be just the right book even if you've been a casual PC user for years already). Gookin has added about 80 entirely new pages: new coverage of Windows XP, 2000, and Me; new stuff on USB and on your digital camcorder's FireWire interface; flat-panel monitors, CD burners, digital cameras, and lots of new Internet coverage -- including a full chapter on using Outlook Express as your email software.

Gookin nails the nitty-gritty stuff: how to switch your mouse for lefties, what computer game ratings mean, how to adjust your monitor, where you can't get viruses from. There's also a good deal of simple troubleshooting -- including the solution to the ever-popular "I accidentally moved my taskbar and now I can't put it back" problem (Tip: in Windows XP, you can lock your taskbar in place. About time!) (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer 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.

Who would have thought a line of reference works "for dummies" would ever sell? Well, they have, and this series installment by author Gookin is an excellent example of how to make something otherwise complicated simple for lay readers. Newbie computer users will find much useful information here, from opening the box and setting up a new computer system to basic file management, hardware and software issues, and basic WindowsR steps. Gookin's fun and easy-to-follow advice is tailor-made for the many people buying PCs for the first time. This new version includes Windows 95R procedures, as well as helpful hints on understanding how computers operate, how to read and write files to hard and floppy disks, and how to set up a basic Windows system configuration. Because of the technical nature of this material, many readers may also want to read the book (available from IDG) while they follow these handy tips with their own computer. This item and the entire "DummiesTM" line is a sure bet for all public libraries.Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
