An absolutely fantastic, yet concise overview of what will be encountered when migrating to Windows 8.1. Reading this book has helped me become familiar with the new features of Windows 8.1, and feel comfortable with how they relate to my current method of getting things done. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking of migrating to Windows 8.1, or anyone for whom Windows 8.1 seems daunting. I should also note, that I am totally blind and even as a blind user, have found that the text is sufficient enough for me to follow along with otherwise is depicted via screenshots.

Great way to move to Windows 8/8.1. It makes the reason for the interface, but gives you ways to get around features you may not like.

This book is a life-saver. I had just bought a new Windows 8.1 lap-top that did not have a touch screen and I would have pulled my hair out if I did not have this book which showed me how to navigate around with the new Windows. I highly recommend this book.

The title says 8.1 but the index and the part of the book in the sample refer to Windows 8. Since the two are rather different I won't be getting this. If it truly is an 8.1 reference, there needs to be some (much?) updating done.

This book has much needed information for the Windows XP, Vista, or Win7 user looking to upgrade to the newest version. Although it principally focuses on how to navigate non-touch devices, there are many good tips and tricks for everyone.

Migrating from Windows 7 to 8.1 seemed to be a big mistake on my part, but Dr Andy Williams explained the rationale for the somewhat difficult and irritating User interface as well as a raft of other very useful techniques.

Well written, not techno-babble here. Good information in an enjoyable reading format. A must have if you are using Windows 8.1

Great intro to Windows 8.1, and perfect for someone who's going to use a mouse and non-touch monitor.I read it in less than two hours, and found it a very practical guide.
