I decided to review this though I read it years ago. My computer died and we bought a brand new one with this monstrosity called Windows 8 which has me pining for my beloved Windows 7. This is a good book that will take you through step-by-step learning about how to use Windows 7 and if you have the option of buying a used computer with Windows 7 on it versus a new one with Windows 8, GRAB the used one with Windows 7.

I forgot I read this book last year when I picked it up again (July 2011) at the library. The Dummies series of books is generally OK, and this one is no exception.

Where do you go for good advice about a windows/computer problem when your son has left for college? This is a good first choice. Not too technical, informative and useful for beginners, this is a useful primer on the basics of the Windows 7 world. With this tome, I became the go-to expert on Windows at home. What a surprise!
