About the Author
The author of over 20 books, Paul Thurrott is a technology analyst for Windows IT Pro and the majordomo of the SuperSite for Windows (www.winsupersite.com). He writes a weekly editorial for Windows IT Pro UPDATE (www.windowsitpro.com/email), a daily Windows news and information e-mail newsletter called “WinInfo Daily News” (www.wininformant.com), and a monthly column called “Need to Know” in Windows IT Pro Magazine. He also blogs daily via the SuperSite Blog (community.winsupersite.com/blogs/paul), posts regularly on Twitter (www.twitter.com/thurrott), and appears weekly in the highly rated and hugely popular Windows Weekly podcast with Leo Laporte (www.twit.tv/ww).
Rafael Rivera is a software developer for a VAR 500 company, Telos Corporation, where he works on mission critical systems. He is a Certified Reverse Engineering Analyst (CREA) and takes Windows apart on his blog Within Windows (www.withinwindows.com). He also regularly “tweets” (www.twitter.com/withinrafael). Rafael was born on the same day as Windows 1.0—November 20, 1985—which many believe is no coincidence.

Top Customer Reviews
However, since most pages are filled with screen-shots of the topic being discussed, it is actually easy -- and quick -- to read. Also, if you have ever heard author Thurrott on the podcast "Windows Weekly", you will recognize his "voice" in may sections: easy going and frank.
I've been thought less than 1/3 the book, but so far have been happy with the balance between "thorough" and "concise".
