I read most of this manual because my dad offered to pay me if i could fix his computer. Even though i couldn't find the information i needed, it still had some helpful hints for the technologically- impaired, as well as game cheats, so you can impress all of your friends with your 20 sec expert minesweeper time, or perfect spider solitaire record. I would say it's good just to have for reference, but don't buy it just if you're looking to fix one things, because odds are you won't find it.
This isn't a bad book on Windows XP. I got it to figure out how XP is different from the older versions of Windows. It does that pretty well with good explanations and helpful tips. But this book is mainly for someone brand-new to Windows who is just pulling out their new computer and wondering what to do next. It does have some tips and information for the experienced user. If you know how to use any version of Windows, just borrow a copy for a weekend.
