I gave up on this book. I got a few useful bits of information from what I read, but couldn't stand his condescending writing style. I'm glad I took the book out from the library instead of spending money on it.
Ever since I did the upgrade to .1 in October, I notice minor issues on my computer that has come from the upgrade. So I want to see how this book can assist with these issues or addresses them. I also wanted to learn more than I already experimented or tried on my own since I purchased computer last year with Windows 8.

I tried to do the "create a password reset disk" and no wizard popped up and attempted three or four times. Nothing (nada)! I wanted to do this just in case as a backup plan for

This was a great book. I actually bought the bundle so that I could watch the DVD prior to my new laptop with Windows 8.1. I used the book more as a reference once I was trying to figure out how to find things after the computer showed up.

Recommends it for: People upgrading to a Windows 8.1 computer
Shelves: reference
This was a great reference when I upgraded to a Windows 8.1 computer. I would recommend it.
Helpful hints but index is difficult to use. Better as a reference than to read all through.

This was a great book for people who want to know how to operate on Windows 8.1 operating system.
Would be more helpful for someone with a smattering of computer experience. Rathbone as always presents material in a clear understandable manner.
Well, I was sure that windows 8/8.1 was the worst system ever, but now I can use it and make it work for me. I learned some tricks that I probably should have known with earlier windows versions and I was able to troubleshoot some problems that were vexing me. So all in all a very useful book!
Riveting!!! NOT but the only way I can think of to learn how to use my new laptop.
