I like the format of the manual with 10 major topics (called Books), each containing a number of chapters. Privacy issues are outlined early in the manual and refined in ensuing chapters dealing with apps and browsers, also a full section handling security issues. There even are chapters comparing search engines, exploring and setting up apps such as Skype, OneDrive, Facebook, and Twitter.
Almost 950 pages full of practical information, but the best part is that when the technical stuff seems to be getting heavy, Woody throws in some humour which will put a smile on your face and keep you reading.
