5.0 out of 5 stars For Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition May 15 2001
Format:Paperback
KISS books are just the best books to help you learn about software. To master Windows with confidence, you will learn how to get the program up and running, master spreadsheets and word processing and improve your computer's performance.
Rich Levin has been involved in the personal computer industry since 1979. he is a software developer, consultant and journalist. he is an internationally respected technology journalist and has written for CBS Radio, Windows Magazine, Business Week and PC world. He runs his own company called Levin Communications and hosts a weekly talk radio show.
The information is divided into four sections. Part one gives you the confidence to design your PC, sign onto the Internet and purchase your computer. Part Two shows you how to take charge of Windows, work with e-mail and sample the Windows Software Library. Part three explains the wonderful world of word processing. The last section describes methods for keeping your secrets safe.
The Computing Golden Rule is: Back-up. That means, save your information. I love that they say...."You're Smart. Your Computer is Stupid." With continually evolving technology you can't just memorize a few steps. This book will help you develop your deductive reasoning skills and coping mechanisms that guide the most experienced computer users.
If you enjoy a book filled with colorful boxes filled with information, funny characters which give you special signs to catch your attention or the inside scoop on secrets no one else is telling you...this is your book!
I thought the advice on page 59 should be taken very seriously, especially if you are building a Web site. I quote: "Choose your ISP (Internet Service Provider) partner with care-divorce can be messy and painful.

I was a novice user until I read this "Bible". Mr. Levin makes it sooo easy to understand. I loaned the book out, so I am back to get another to have at my side.
