This is quite the comprehensive tome on Windows 8. Checking in at over 1000 pages, it is in-depth to say the least. The book is divided into ten sections, fifty-two chapters, and four appendixes. Do you need to know something about Windows 8? It's probably covered somewhere in here. I like the fact that the book is divided in sections and further divided into many chapters. This book covers all the basic operating principles you need to know to use Windows 8, so you might find (if you are already experienced with Windows 7 or Vista) that the book covers information you already are familiar with. Having the book broken down into so many chapters allows you to skip any material you already know - that's nice. It also allows you to jump to the section or chapter that you may need help on allowing the book to be used for reference - you don't have to read it cover to cover. To aid in finding something quickly, there is a table of contents summary of just two pages, and, following this, is a 26-page table of contents broken down into individual tasks. So you can quickly find the section or chapter in the first table, then use the second table to narrow down your search. This is great, but it doesn't beat having a searchable PDF of the book that could be downloaded.So what is covered? In a nutshell, the interface and using the tiles, gestures, security, personalization, management, the cloud, pictures, music, movies, files and folders, searching, printing, faxing, scanning, installing/removing programs, hardware, performance, troubleshooting, networking - everything you need to know to get the most out of Windows 8. Use 's "Look Inside" feature to check the table of contents for a good idea of what's covered. This book is designed for a primary user of the operating system.
