    An informative and useful reference to Windows 7 in all of its flavors.

    It took me a little while after Windows 7 became available before I gave up my Windows XP desktop and purchased a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium pre-loaded. Like those who endured the change to Windows Vista, I found myself floundering around a little trying to figure out all of the new bells and whistles Microsoft had added to their operating system. Windows 7: the missing manual by David Pogue is meant to address the needs of people like me. The book, while readable by beginners, is written for users with some acquaintance with Windows. Advanced users will find the book too simplistic, but users up to the intermediate level will find it a handy reference to the new features in all of the flavors of Windows 7.

    Writing for the multiple levels of Windows 7 is handled by including a little sub-heading "cheat sheet" after each major heading. Most will have "All Versions", but you may see a subset like "Home Premium * Professional * Enterprise * Ultimate". Handling multiple levels of users is a little more difficult. The book is written for advanced beginners to intermediate users, but beginners to Windows have "Up to Speed" sidebars added to help them understand concepts regular Windows users already know. More advanced users have "Power User's Clinic" sidebars to provide additional information.

    Windows 7: the missing manual is organized into 8 parts, comprising 27 chapters and 4 appendices. Overall, the book does assume you've at least seen a previous version of Windows, as a lot of text explains how Windows 7 is different. I personally would have preferred the author keep the focus on Windows 7 and less on the differences from prior versions. There are a lot of attempts at humor. On the plus side, it keeps the tone of this fairly large book accessible to the novice to intermediate user. On the minus side, the occasional joke usually seems out of place.

    I found Windows 7: the missing manual a valuable reference to the many offerings in Microsoft's latest incarnation of Windows. While the writing style varies from simple reference to the occasional attempt at light-hearted guidance, it is a comprehensive, informative and (most importantly) useful manual of the ins and outs of using Windows 7 in all its flavors. With few flaws, I rate this a 4 out of 5.

    A Manual for All Seasons and All Users

    This is the first manual that I have been able to read with pleasure. It is literate and conveys Pogue's sense of humor throughout. It was well-designed for those ranging from beginner to expert. Many of the points made could have been worked out, but think of the waste of time involved. In one volume (and a CD which I did not review) resides a guide through the Windows morass. Having used the Windows 7 OS, I only wish I had this before me when I set up the laptop.
    Separated out for easy access are beginner's points and more advanced tips for the initiate. Screen shots abound. It is all presented logically and the information can be accessed easily.
    This is not a book for the programmer who wants to see the OS code. Rather, it is for the user who wants to maximize his/her understanding of the many ways to achieve a pleasurable working environment according to his/her taste.

    At every level, this is the manual to get for Windows 7.

    A casestudy in mediocrity

    You'd think a book released so late after Windows 7 itself would be more comprehensive and more accurate. Instead I found nothing except a rehash of materials from other books and online help. To make it worse, often online help was better and at least online help gets to the point. Even more frustrating was that there'd be a few paragraphs on something I really wanted to know and then pages and pages on useless subjects. Avoid if you have a choice. If you already got it, I feel your pain.

    Excellent Book

    This is the only book you will need for Windows 7. I recently bought a new computer with Windows 7 installed on it. Previous computer was XP based. Any questions I have had have been easy to research in this book. The answers are clear and to the point. I previously had the Windows XP missing manual and found it just as informative. You can't go wrong with this book. In fact I ordered and received it before the new computer was ready.

    A Solid Book for All Levels...

    "Windows 7 is the best-reviewed, best-loved Microsoft operating system ever. It brings you security, speed, good looks, and several trillion new features - but it still comes without a single page of printed instructions. Fortunately, award-winning author and New York Times columnist David Pogue is back, ready to serve as your clear, funny, expert guide to the world of Windows 7." So says the back of this wonderful book on Windows 7 Despite being an experienced Windows user and having spent much time using Windows 7, I learned a lot while reading this book.
    The book begins by teaching you a basic understanding of the Windows 7 interface and goes all the way through to maintenance and high-level tweaks. Every user will gain something from this book. It is a worthwhile purchase and read for all levels of understanding. I give fair warning to more experienced users. Portions of the book will bore you. Despite this, "Windows 7: The Missing Manual" is a great resource. You don't need to read this book cover-to-cover. You can just read the sections that are relevant to you.
    Of special interest to me were the appendices. Appendix A teaches you the different ways you can install Windows 7 and how to move your data and settings over to the new install. Appendix B shows you how to perform some very cool registry tricks to spice up Windows 7 and make it run more your own way. Appendix C helps you find all the items that you loved in previous versions of Windows that have disappeared in Windows 7. Appendix D takes you through a review of common keyboard shortcuts as well as several new ones that are very helpful.
    All in all, I think "Windows 7: The Missing Manual" is a very worthwhile purchase and I highly recommend it.

    Very Comprehensive

    I found this book very complete and thorough. I don't need to read all of it just those topics I choose or that I need help on. Great reference work!

    Another winner from Missing Manual!

    When my Vista computer died, I got a new one with Windows 7. I was unable to figure out how to do some of the things I wanted, so I turned to my trusted resource (The Missing Manual Series). I haven't read this one cover-to-cover like I have most of the others (I own about 10 Missing Manual books), but whenever I needed something I was able to find it easily, and it usually fixed whatever problem I was experiencing. I highly recommend this series of books over all the other computer reference brands, including the ones from Microsoft!

    Agree The Windows 7 Missing Manual

    I have bought 3 Windows 7 books and this is by far the best. Wish I had found it first. I have read the book as part of an XP to Windows 7 upgrade and now use as a reference book. Information is easy to find, there are a lot of tips, figures and suggestions.

    I Also Recommend:

    This is a truly useful resourse.

    This is a user-friendly manual. While it is very comprehensive, it isn't the normal dusty, boring, put-you-to-sleep tome. I found all of my questions answered, as I discoverd my them! This is written in a way that humorous and beneficial. Start at the beginning and just go through it all. You will find suprising info, humorously written, along with basic tools needed to use Windows 7. I definitely recommend it along with all of the "missing manual" series. I started my collection with the Iphone missing manual, and was very pleased with it as I like to have a hard copy to use, rather than use the help feature.
