Excellent Read for the Computer-Challenged
I'm probably one of the last baby-boomers to finally buy a computer. I found it very intimidating. While taking classes that were still leaving me struggling, someone suggested that I buy this book. It was the best investment I could have made. It answers so many of my questions in an easy, humorous way.
At one point, my arrow kept jumping all over the computer screen. I was not even touching the mouse. I thought the machine was posessed. I started flipping through my Dummie book and sure enough, the problem was listed. Not posessed, only a dirty mouse. Whew.
I have used this book as a resource for info more times than I can recall. It has been a lifesaver for me. Computer experts have a way of talking in a different language. Mr. Rathbone keeps it simple and easy. Thanks!!!

Great book for an absolute beginner. Well written, clearly explained, not "cutesy" or as funny as the "Idiots" guides but that was OK. Got a lot out of it and was less intimidated by the machine afterwards; much more comfortable in sitting down and trying out the different programs. Well worth the price.

Windows Me for Dummies
Windows Me is an almost useless piece of fluff. Author Andy Rathbone goes to great lengths to explain what Windows Me can do, he however makes almost no atempt to explain how to do it. I found his scratchings on the Media player to be an especialy large waste of time. He listed in almost painfull detail exactly what Media Play could acomplish, he simly forgot to say how. Overall I would say purchasing this book was a waste of my time and money.
