The Windows 8 Inside Out isn't going to be for everyone, or it won't all be for everyone, but that doesn't mean it's not a great guide. It contains some information perfect for beginners and some that is so specialized that it may only appeal to 5% of all readers. I'd recommend that you come in with at least a little knowledge of an older version of windows if you want this book to be hassle free, but beyond that don't be intimidated by the upper end knowledge in this book. Having a few topics that you don't understand or have no interest in learning about won't take away from the more basic information that the book provides.The book itself is divided into 5 major sections (Getting Started, File Management, Music Videos Tv and Movies, Security and Privacy, and Networking). For many users, the getting started section may be the only section that fully applies to you. If you don't care about being a power user and milking your machine for every last bit of speed I'd read the getting started section and then skim the table of contents or index for other things that interest you. Intermediate users will probably use the first few chapters in each section, but the chapters seem to get more obscure after that and probably won't apply for a majority of people.For example Part 3 (Music, videos, tv, and movies) starts off with Chapter 14, "Music and Videos." It includes a good overview of the built in music app, managing play lists, copying CDs, editing videos with Movie Maker, etc (all conceivably things that a normal user would want to do). Part 3 ends with a chapter on creating a home theater PC.
