As Per Usual, The Missing Manual Sets The Bar

'Windows 7: The Missing Manual' by David Pogue is just another all star in the lineup of Missing Manual books. There truly is no better bang for the buck than the Missing Manual line. Expertly written books at a great price, with more content than you would ever expect is what you get from TMM line and that is what you get here.

Windows 7 simply is a GREAT operating system. After the fiasco of Vista, Microsoft went back to the drawing board and made sure their next OS was good and they didn't just achieve good, they far surpassed it. Everything about Windows 7 just 'feels' right and its been a joy to use daily. But if you are a new user or someone that is looking to get the most out of Win7, you need some guidance on how to do that. Enter Windows 7 The Missing Manual. Covering hundreds upon hundreds of content over a myriad of chapters, this text shows you all the new goodies of Win 7 like snap, the smarter taskbar, along with everything that has made Windows shine the past 25 years.

Everything from the basics to searching, to working with pictures/media, to networking, to using the Aero themes, it's all here. My only gripe with this book is that it needed color within. For something as hot and exciting as Windows 7, a black and white interior doesn't do the book justice and knocks this down a notch (but barely at all).

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
