I passed on buying Windows 7 books. But I found Windows to be such a change that Paul's book seemed to be de rigueur to learn about the new features of the One Size Fits All Microsoft Operating System.

Because I have been programming in various Windows based languages over 25 years, my review is biased. What I found clear and straight forwards in the book may not be as clear for someone else.

Amongst the key values I found was the explanations of all the features which are truly Windows 8 generic.

For example, the concept of Charms where one can, from most New UI applications (not Desktop's) Search, Share, Print, Manage. A unique concept that allows for much easier learning as the features are common, use common words, and act in a similar fashion.

The book is also amazing in dealing with the dual personality of Windows 8. I am lucky enough to use Window 8 on both regular Intel systems and on the Surface. It was always clear what was Surface's limitations and what was the range of Desktop supported features.

And this brings the second split personalities of this OS. It supports wonderful new features, like Touch Screen, Charms, a great new Internet Explorer. I note this because IE is now immersive (within the New UI) and simply makes Web pages look and feel differently. Paul's addresses the New UI quite well. (it probably deserves a book on its own!)

The book also manages (on the Intel based systems) to support all Windows applications well. It is invaluable in dealing with complex picture of Windows 8. There are excellent chapters on Networking, Security, Gaming, the Windows Store. In themselves, each of those can a be a good excuse top buy the book.

As I read every page, I thought that Microsoft should give it away for people buying Windows 8.

The rating is 4 stars because I found a few instances where you could tell the book was written 'Just-In-Time' and I suspect the next edition will clean up and improve the current status of the Windows 8 eco system. I also suspect that given the new approach to Windows Updates (fast an furious), this book will need a more rapid update itself.

If you own the book it, share it... If you do not, a MUST buy, you will not be deceived. In any event, Windows 8 is such a huge change, that reading this book will help you understand what is happening and be the source of a number of interesting discoveries.

I forgot to say I read it on the Microsoft Surface. I highly recommend a powerful reader, like Surface or Kindle Fire, as the book is in full color and the screen shots are very useful.

I'm a guy that has always figured out software for himself, but Windows 8 on launch day was not only a big change, but not an intuitive change. Thankfully, this book was available on launch day to answer all of my questions without me having to waste time searching. The biggest confusion was how to shut down the computer. The second was how to boot to desktop (had to go to google for that one, not in the book. Thankfully, added as a stock option in Windows 8.1). The third was how to find my old trusty backup tool.

If your an IT then you already know that publishers such as Syba and Microsoft Press are where you need to go for your 1000± page sleeping pills you read every new release. For power-users and home entheusiats I highly recommend the "Secrets" series of guidebooks as highly informative, especially when it comes to undocumented features and drilling down to the under levels of the OS. And you won't go insane referencing tech terms you wish had been put into home user language since they already are.

Not Amazon's fault, the book takes the perspective that a person has a previously existing earlier version of Windows which I did not have. My previous computer had Window XP. I was not conversant with the version of Windows the book made the assumption I should have been familiar with. It was of absolutely no use to me.

I have been working in IT, supporting Windows desktop and server operating systems for 14 years and I am finding this book to be a worthwhile read. (I am about 1/3 of the way through it so far) It is not a manual for beginning computer users. Nor is it a technical deep dive into the inner working of Windows processes and registry. And "secrets" may be a bit generous for the title. But for someone who is already familiar with using Windows 7, it is a great way to learn about the new aspects of Windows 8, which is my intention. The author's writing is a pleasure to read.
