"What I like about this book is that the author takes his years of experience and some of the best content from his website (http://www.annoyances.org) and not just discuss them, but actually give you the steps to take yourself... The sections on performance will be of great interest to poeple using XP on older/slower computers. The troubleshooting section can be a lifesaver for some, also."

"[Windows XP Annoyances for Geeks is an] incredibly satisfying read provided you're a tweaker, hacker, fiddler and geek...We found the troubleshooting section the most helpful and would venture to say that it's worth the money for these 100 pages alone. It's the kind of hands-on 'tricks and tips' book you've always wanted, answering all your problems without shying away from the technical solutions. Buy it."

"Strengths: Gets deep into Registries and provides workarounds.
Weaknesses: None found.
Are you ready to reduce your feelings of angst and frustration regarding XP? Step inside this book to see unvarnished quirks and behaviors revealed, and realize it isn't 'just you' or your WinTel-based system having issues with the OS. At least now you can see how to work around the issues."
