I downloaded the PDF format and use it constantly when wanting to solve a problem or need to now more about a subject. The PDF format lets me do quick finds and if I need detailed 'how to' instructions I can easily print a page or two to follow. The text is clear and easy to understand. I have the book on a flash drive and have it accessible at all times when I help friends with software problems.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
