"The right amount of information for me. Clear and well laid out. Particularly like the color layout. Recommended." (from Amazon.co.uk)
"Because of the fiasco that is Windows 8 (just a personal view), I was converting to a Mac and new operating system at the same time. My initial instinct was to get a really comprehensive book and I bought one from the 'missing manual' series. I found it cumbersome to use however, and hence I bought the 'easy steps' book which is far more visual, a handier size and weight, and contained all that I needed. If you are someone, like me, that's just wants, even needs on occasion to use a computer with the minimum fuss and maximum ease this is a good choice." (from Amazon.co.uk)
