I love this book! I've had my Windows XP machine for over a year and have only done a little with digital pictures and scanning. I installed my digital movie camera but never really got the hang of it. This book describes in detail how to do everything I want to do, from making movies to getting a .NET passport for my kids. It's full color too, and definitely worth the price tag. The CD contains in depth tutorials on how to do everything too, including playing and organizing my music files. I especially like the part about turning my PC into a music studio, a Karaoke machine, and a Personal DJ since I'm a music enthusiast. There are sections everywhere that offer ideas for even more projects. Great Book, I love it!!

This is a great book to accompany the Windows System, without a bunch of technical hocus pocus ... It tells me what I want to know, and lets me get under way ...

Excellent book no problem at all cool
