I have two Windows XP books sitting on my desk. One of them is a monumental tome, 1450 or so pages that tells you how to do everything and inexhausing detail. Sometimes I need that kind of detail. Other times it is so much detail that I can't find the small tidbit of information I need to know to do something.I'm not really a power user. I use the computer to do the tasks I need and don't make it a hobby to go explore all the things that could be done.For instance, I just got a digital camera. I suppose that there is stuff on how to use it in the big book, but on page 70 of this book is a simple do this, now do that set of instructions to get the digital camera images into the computer from the camera. That's all I wanted to do and I was able to do it quickly and easily.That's the format of this book. It is organized by that task you want to perform. Then under each task there are a set of simplified instructions, complete with what the screen should look like. For most things, this is where I look first, it saves a lot of time.
I found it contained a lot of good information. I have used several other "Simplified" books. I was somewhat dissappointed with the smaller illustrations in this book.
This book is excellent for people who have never used a computer before and wish to learn.
I was very pleased withe the book and the service of the seller. First class deal.
