Get More out of This Book! Computer books aren't like other books, those that you might read for entertainment or enlightenment. No, they're more like software--you purchase them because you're trying to solve a problem, complete a task, or understand a technology. In short, you purchase computers books to work, live, and play better. As the author of Windows 98 Registry Handbook, I'm committed to helping you achieve those goals. My book is one way that I do that.

Another way is by supporting you well after purchasing it. For example, you can get additional information--including corrections and downloads--from my Web site.
