Format: Paperback
This book is the ideal choice for a relatively inexperienced user looking for a comprehensive, thorough, but accessible guide to the complexities of Windows 7. The author,Woody Leonhard, is a well-known Windows expert who runs the informative website [...], which provides up-to-date news on Windows updates and other related topics.Since Windows 7 All-in-One essentially rolls 8 related books into one completely comprehensive desk reference it is a great deal for the thoughtful, value-conscious consumer and I intend to recommend it to friends and family looking to move up to Windows 7.

I was a Windows XP user, and skipped the Vista nightmare. When I bought a new laptop it came pre-installed with Windows 7.

If I had wanted to spend a lot of time, I probably could have figured out the differences between XP and Win7, but decided to get this book as a short-cut. I'm glad I did.

The differences are subtle, and can be annoying if you liked XP, but with this book I could decide quickly which new "features" I wanted and which to ignore.

Win7 does take a lot more of your computing power, so it's well worth selecting which things to install to keep your computer running at a reasonable speed.

If you're a complete newcomer to Windows, all the more reason to get this book to figure out how to configure your computer and how to navigate around the basic system.

This book has taken my Windows 7 experience to a whole new level. I am enjoying working my way through it, and would highly recommend it. The writing style is enjoyable (!) even for someone who is technologically challenged. My only very small criticism is that some steps could be a little more detailed. But having said that, it's great to start with this book, which is such a reliable resource and then head off to other sources if you need more information. As there is some overlap between Windows 7 and Vista, I've been able to show some neat tricks to people who've had Vista for years and haven't realized all that it could do. This book has put a lot of fun back into my computing experience-great stuff!
