Excellent for what it is


This is excellent when used for quick reference and only for the experienced and knowledgeable. This is inappropriate for beginners since Exchange is intertwined with Active Directory. Without knowing all the implications of performing the various tasks outlined in the book, it can be detrimental to a company.

A good book for most


OK I could have lived with a lot less illustrations. But this one of the first PC books I have found that gives a fair overview of a PC in a fairly easy to understand text. Unless you are looking for a highly technical book on PC's, this is one of the better ones out there.
I found it easy reading and informative and would suggest it to anyone that is after a book that covers everything from the power switch to Windows and everything between. Looks like it could be an excellent textbook for persons seeking one for the high school or even middle school level. Only downside? There are some errors that SHOULD have been caught by the editor.

It Made Me Think


Don't make me think did make me think, but that's a good thing.
I've read a number of books on web design, usability etc. Steve's book is one of the most readable and useful treatments of the subject. The book is relatively short and to the point. His approach of mixing in humor and keeping things light make it enjoyable to digest what could be fairly dry information.
The sections on testing for usability alone are more than worth the price of the book. I've already made changes to my own site...based on Steve's book, and I don't take lightly to making changes.
If you work in web site design (artist, programmer, designer) or just own your own site -- get the book!
