Book Review: Windows 7 Inside Out Deluxe Edition By Ed Bott, Carl Siechert, and Craig Stinson

Standard

In order to write such a detailed and insightful book, the authors definitely must know the ins and outs of Windows 7.  This book goes through everything you have ever wanted to know about the operating system, and then includes details you thought you already knew about, but there is more to learn. Chapter Six and Seven are devoted to using Internet Explorer 9. The interface of this version is different than previous versions and the authors do a terrific job explaining each feature.

What surprised me most about this book is seeing a chapter devoted to Using Pen, Touch, and Voice Input devices based on the type of hardware installed. Included are both touch-enabled as well as tablets. Although the technology might just start to be taking over, instructions to these are important as we start to use the new technologies available.

The content of this book is what you would find in your normal computer book. The text is detailed, albeit stuffy. Few might take the time to read this book from cover to cover, but definitely keep this book on your shelf as a reference guide.
