"One sentence can accurately sum up Windows 7: The Missing Manual: if it's not covered in the book, you don't need to know it. The latest entry in David Pogue's Missing Manual series thoroughly discusses the basics as well as the advanced features of the operating system, using everyday terminology to explain some difficult concepts."

"A lot of people contributed ideas and expertise to this book. Their names are listed inside, but it is David Pogue's name on the cover, and whether by remote control or some other mysterious means, Pogue is the one who orchestrated the effort to produce the book. The results are superb. This is easily one of the most comprehensive and most readable books available on Windows 7. Even after spending just two hours with it, you'll be amazed at the power you've gained. "
