Quickly, quickly! That is the focus of this book. The authors seem to be aiming this at someone (you) who needs to solve a problem now, without having to spend hours wading through the official manual. So Hatfield and Jones set out to find problems ('tasks' as the book terms these) that could be solved in 10 steps or less. Obviously, by the way, this is a user's manual, not a programmer's manual. This constraint of 10 steps is broad enough for them to offer solutions to a gamut of common problems. Like copying a song from your music CD to your computer's hard disk. Many users have probably fumbled through the XP manual for this answer. Here, it is task 79. In fact, in recognition of the importance of music, some 14 tasks are grouped together that deal with music related problems. Perhaps if you are still unsure about this book, try glancing at the contents. It lists 261 tasks, each with a very descriptive subject line. Care has clearly gone into the wording of these.
