Windows 7 - The Missing Manual

February 17, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

Windows has recently been going through a tough phase of its glorious legacy in the world of technology which it has dominated for the past few decades. Its internet Browser "internet explorer" is getting upstaged by other browsing engines like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome while it also went through that fiasco of Vista which really was shockingly bad.

So it was no surprise when I found myself holding onto XP and waiting for what else Microsoft would come up with. Trust the worlds richest man and he came up with the Windows 7. Though I wanted to do a head bang on it right away! the prospect of going through another technical manual which would have me scratching my head was not exactly tempting.

In computer book land, you either get lame introduction type material which leaves you with only the basics and at times actually makes you feel like a lost soul, or you get a thoroughly informative book that puts you into a short lived coma.

At this critical juncture of time enter Windows 7 - The Missing Manual.

The Missing Manual is a guide to everything that you need to know regarding Microsoft's newest adventure. One may ask how is it any different from the other manuals that continue to bore us to death. The answer lies in the fact that it does exactly the opposite of what the other manuals do i.e. it does not bore you. The language used by the author is a conversational one that everyone can comprehend making the material extremely simple to grasp.

The flow of this book allows you to move from section to section without there being a "hard" interruption in between, the index and appendix are top notch for anyone choosing to pick helpful nuggets here and there. The bad aspect of other books are that the humour in them is so false that it actually irritates you rather than lightening your mood. Although the book will not make you roll all over the floor, it will bring a lot of smiles to your face making your read enjoyable.

If you want a comprehensive manual for Windows 7 that is useful for beginners through to advanced users then get the book that Microsoft forgot to put in your box.
