After writing 2 glowing reviews for other books in the Pogue Press series I knew that the only way to go was down. Well, that might be a little harsh. I don't have any problems with this book by David Pogue himself, it's just I don't know how useful this book is. Microsoft really outdid themselves when they released Windows XP, and it was developed with the most novice of users in mind. Even at the low retail price that this book lists at, I just don't know how necessary it really is. Nicely written, good content, but only the greenest of computer users would probably find this book useful.**** RECOMMENDED

This is a good bood for beginners, something along the lines of teh "Dummies" book. I woudl ahve liked to get more in-depth information, particularly on the subject of Windows XP installation and the options available, but the book only includes information on the features of WX and not the installation.

I have found these books to be very informative and useful in learning the system of computers. If you need help it is good.

I had seen this book and it looked to be useful. I received my copy in excellent condition,at a good price, in good time.
