Many neophites who know that Windows XP exits but not yet sure how it exists to what makes it tick -- this is especially dificult for Mac users who are also working with Windows now that the new Apple MacBooks make it possible to work with Mac OS X and Windows XP at the same time. The differences between the two OSs can be confusing. "Master VISUALLY Windows XP Service Pack 2 Edition" can be very helpful in this regard. The author goes a long way to help the reader understand Windows XP and how to make it work to their advantage.
I think the Teach Yourself Visually books are useful books for beginners. Many (but not all) of the "Teach Yourself Visually" series books are good -- check reviews first on the one you are considering. This one (not a TYV exactly, "Master Visually XP) is a so-so... I don't like it as well as the TYV Windows XP.
