A reader from Rockster, Illinois says, "This is about the most comprehensive book I have found that discusses Windows 7 features and capabilities in an easy to read format. All the bases seem to be covered to make anyone upgrading to Windows 7 or anyone just starting out with Windows 7 to become comfortable with the new operating system and to get the best out of it. There is even a section in the book covering the basic components of PCs, how to clean your PC, identifying the different parts. Great for newbies who want to know a little about their computer.

"The book has great tips for optimum configuration, diagnosing problems, setting security, disaster recovery, common annoyances and how to get around them. This is a great reference book that the beginner or advance PC user will want to keep handy. There is so much information in this book that even the die hard computer geek who thinks he/she knows everything about computers should find something here that they didn't know and can put to good use."
