Pros
For anyone that is coming from windows 7 this book is perfect. It helps bridge the gap between the two. The details can be misleading without some previous knowledge of windows. This is a good book if you need a little extra help.
Cons
The index is not accurate.It is hard to look up information.It is confusing at times because terms are not clearly defined and some details are missing. This can be very frustrating for someone who is trying to learn how to work the program.
Summary
This book is an impressing tool for anyone who is trying to grasp the updates.Windows 7 was great, windows 8 not so much. It is nice to find a book that can make sense of the update.It is presented in a way that makes everything just come together. There does seem to have some serious details missing at times.Terms are not clearly defined. There is no glossary to define the terms.The index is off which makes it exceedingly difficult to look up something if you just happen to come across it. It is possible that the author meant for it to be for people with limited computer knowledge, however if that is the case it makes no sense that the author did not include definition of some of the terms so that it would be easier to understand. That is what makes it difficult for users to clearly understand what the author is talking about.It seems to talk down to the reader and at times it is like they meant for it to be confusing. This book would be the most useful if you already understand windows and just need a little boost.
