5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book - for Intermediate to Advanced Readers Oct. 28 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is just what I was looking for. I've been using XP for years and intend to purchase a new computer with Windows 7. This book starts by discussing the different versions of Win 7 available (in detail) and the hardware you'll need if you want to run some specific features like Aero or XP Mode. For those upgrading, there's a complete chapter on installing the OS from the disk. The bulk of the book, and the reason I find it so useful, is that it explains in detail all the differences between XP (or Vista) and Windows 7. Very well written, easy to understand and very thorough. If you're a total beginner this isn't the book for you, but if you're coming from XP or Vista, it will help you get comfortable with 7 in a hurry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as intimidating as it first appears Jan. 2 2010
Format:Paperback
Weighing it a 1054 pages, this book seems physically intimidating, at first.

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".
