    Comprehensive and understandable

    This book provides well organized guidance for first time and seasoned Windows users. Online help is useful in solving many problems but The Pocket Consultants have helped us learn about the many Vista capabilities that are found by leisurely reading the chapters... the kinds of things we would not have considered.
