The cover of this book asks the follow question: Do you know a CPU from a hard drive? Do you? If so, this book is fantastic. In my opinion, the key to diagnosis of any kind is a quick elimination of possible root causes. This book accomplishes that by forcing the reader into yes/no questions. Drawing on his obvious experience, the author uses flowcharts to continually narrow the tech's focus until the answer is apparent. The author takes subconcious deduction and lays it out on the page for anyone to follow. After some time it should become second nature to you as well. The book covers the gambit of hardware issues with a straightforward style. In between the various categories is text related to specific points on the flowcharts. There is some real gems in there. I have no doubt the author earns hourly income many times the cost of this book. Buy it.
