I can't help but think the authors had me in mind for the title. When I got my first computer in 1994 and unpacked it at home I thought, "What the heck have I done; I don't know anything about computers?" Anyway, over the years, the Dummies series has been a tremendous help...from computers, to operating systems, to digital audio and video, and home networking to name just a few, the Dummies series has given me what I need to know in a quick, entertaining way. I highly recommend this series.
This was VERY basic. Not very helpful for my situation, but a great beginner's guide.
I will probably be reading this book for the rest of my life.
Had alot of info about computers! GoodRead!
