excellent but dated
Excellent book, great photos. Fantastic for DIY.
However, the year 2004 is creeping on us, so an update would be nice, especially with amd64.

Wicked awesome
As of the date of this review, the Third Edition is a terrific book. Absolutely right on. It covers everything you need to know to build your own ATX-form factor computer, with the possible exception of leads to the best online vendors. It also doesn't cover things like mini-ITX configurations, but that wouldn't be appropriate for an introductory text anyway.

If you are looking for the one book that will show you how to build your own machine, this is it.

A very good book
I don't want to think that I'm overrating this book, but I honestly love it. The author is indeed very knowledgeable and gives good advice. I believe he has done a very good job, having in mind how thin the book is - I wish there was more of it. Still, I definitely feel that I have gained a good deal of knowledge out of this book, and I'm looking forward to the next edition. I would certainly recommend this book for newbies who want to get their feet wet into this exciting world of computer hardware.
