Due to the fact that i myself don't own a copy of Windows 7, this book was a bit boring for me. However, trying to keep up with these versions of Windows prompted me to buy the book. Im glad i did. The bad thing is: this isn't the newest OS out there, that The Missing Manuals has a book out for. They also came out with a book for Windows 8.

Very heavy on info, and Idon't generally bore easily with TMM books(or technology books).

Solid book with mostly good info, the authors writing style could be a bit annoying at times but a good book for anyone who wants to learn the basics of the OS

This is a very good reference book for Windows 7. Not bedtime reading.
