There's no perfect computer guide.....
For people still using Windows 98 (which in the current worm- infested environment seems a distinct advantage) this book is about the best you can do. Explains basic stuff, has good illustrations, and if the book doesn't EXACTLY answer your question, with some searching you can usually figure it out. The big questions remain 1) why are these products so complicated and 2) why isn't Microsoft publishing the best guide? It's really too bad that the BEST sources of software tips are the Q&A columns in newspapers.

I purchased this for the lady of the house, an admitted newbie, raw recruit clueless computer user. I set up a computer for her in the living room, put my old dusty copy of Win98SE in it, told her to consult the book and not me should she have a question, and turned her loose. The book has done a admirable job answering her questions. A couple of months after buying it, I thumbed through it, and it did the same for me. This dummy thinks it's great.

Great General Information!
Got my first computer (really) two weeks before Christmas. It has Windows 98 as the operating system. With the computer I received two books to help get me started. Win 98 for Dummies and The User Friendly Guide To Internet & Computer Terms. Both are great. Win 98 for Dummies takes you step by step thru the process of getting acquainted with a computer. The User Friendly Guide has a great dictionary along with tons of tips and articles about computers and the Internet. There's so much to know! If you need a great reference book, spend the money and get both of these.
