This book provides a thorough and systematic approach to learning Windows 8. I was able to navigate the interface with reasonable facility after having read approximately the first half of the book. Although I do not use all of the features of the operating system as I imagine few will, I believe the book contains a comprehensive amount of information that should be more than adequate for most users. I recommend it as an excellent introduction and reference.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
