    Excellent. I wouldn't have upgraded to Windows * if I had read this book !!

    This book, and several others on Windows 8, begin by saying that if you are a serious Windows power user (or someone who basically gets work done with Windows), you may regret the move to Windows 8.

    Windows 8 tries to appeal to the traditional power user and also appeal to the flashy touch screen modern recreational user. While it may do a good job with the recreational user, it fails the power user in many ways. One way is to eliminate the "Start Menu" as well as other power features such as classic control panel methods of control and configuration and many more.

    Woody Leonhard continues his fine work as both a critic and a user guide creator for Microsoft products. You will benefit from reading this book, or at least the introductory sections, before you actually upgrade to Windows 8.

    Or, at least, you can understand the reason to follow a path where you can easily revert to your previous Windows version, and await whatever Microsoft attempts next.

    Excellent reference for Windows operating systems

    Note that there several authors publishing Dummies books on Windows 8. I recommend this author, Woody Leonhard. I have purchased his Windows for Dummies books on previous editions of Windows, and even purchased them to give as gifts. His books have been probably most useful books that I own, often saving me from contacting technical support for help on my computers.

    Note this edition is quite volumous, about the size of a collegiate Websters dictionary. It covers everything. Also, Woody Leonhard writes a Dummies book titled "Tips and Tricks" which offers zillions of shortcuts on using the computer operating system.

    This book is absolutely fantastic!  I hesitated to buy it becaus

    This book is absolutely fantastic!  I hesitated to buy it because I am really not
     a computer "dummy" so I checked it out in a B&N store first.  I can't tell you
     how much I learned from this book on such a range of topics!  I have no idea
     how I ever would have figured out Windows 8 without it. It was undoubtedly the
    best $20 some bucks I have spent this year. Win8 is a steep learning curve
    and not very intuitive.  You probably need Woody's help!

    Highly Recommended

    This book is a must for anyone with Win8 and the subject matter is very easy to follow along. Very detailed on how to setup users and how to navigate around in Win8. If you not familiar shortcut keys, this book explains those as well. It makes navigation a lot easier. The fact the start button has been removed you can get a third party app to install to bring it back. However when you do that the Win Start key will only work with the start button and not the Win tiles window. I purchased this copy to use on my e-reader.

    Probably the BEST book on Windows 8 out there. (Of course, I haven't read them ALL yet; but then again, after reading this one, you won't NEED to read all the rest!)
