Pogue is a clear and gifted writer who is able to cut through the technobabble and show the reader how to solve problems and get stuff done. The Missing Manual is an ideal companion for both first-time XP users and more experienced users who find themselves flummoxed by the software.

A visit to www.missingmanuals.com can offer instant relief to headaches generated by mounting XP glitches. David Pogue, a columnist for The New York Times and the genius behind the Missing Manual series of books, has adapted his easy-to-follow, humorous style of writing to help us survive our often-exasperating bouts with computer mania. This is an extremely easy-to-follow guide to everything you need to know about Windows XP without insulting our intelligence, as we sometimes find in the Idiots' or Dummies' series of books, giving us step-by-step solutions to our problems.
