After fighting with Windows 7 for six months, with extreme frustration and annoyance at the loss of simplicity, efficiency, and productivity compared to my daily use of Windows XP for 10½ years, this title and its selling points grabbed my attention. It does provide a lot of insight, techniques, and tips to help get Win 7 under control, but I had already figured out most of that. There is also a strong emphasis on third-party tools, free and paid, that may help overcome some of Win 7's deficiencies, but I'm reluctant to garbage up my system with such things. Many of the major annoyances are completely ignored.

I also found the author's writing style to be sometimes vague and obscure. I have quite a lot of computer experience from well before the early days of Personal Computers (both as an IT professional and a personal user), but I had to reread some sentences and paragraphs multiple times to try to decipher what he meant. At times he gets bogged down in details, often not making his main points clear — leaving it up to the reader to figure it out. Other times he briefly mentions techniques, then says "covered in Chapter" such and such.

Don't misunderstand me. The book can be a great help for those learning Win 7 and/or struggling with its idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. There are many useful tidbits! The installation/upgrade information is very good. It was published in 2010, digs pretty deeply into the system, and provides a lot of information that is still timely (though there are a number of inaccuracies).

I have benefited from reading it. I would give it three and a half stars if I could.

Despite having a fairly extensive table of contents and index, this book contains essential information that isn't listed in either place. Certainly, one would expect to find an entry for "image" (or "Windows 7 image", or something of the sort) in either the index or the TOC, but none is to be found.

One of the most useful pieces of information I came across showed how to retrieve individual files from a Windows 7 system image -- something that you might think would be impossible to do. Yet, it can be done, and this book offers a step-by-step procedure on pages 419-20.

The moral of the story is that you shouldn't rely exclusively on the book's index or TOC when you need to solve a Windows 7 problem. The answer may well appear in the pages in-between, but if it does, some detective work may be required to find it.

I was a software developer for 40 years have been using Windows since version 1.03 (yes, 1.03, with tiled windows). Each version of Windows adds more and more useless features (excuse me, "marketing incentives") and the ever faster hardware can barely keep up (and sometimes it can't, see Vista). As a result, perceived performance has been roughly constant.

I had stopped at Windows XP and it was with some misgivings that I bought a small Acer netbook (Acer AO 722-0825 with dual 1.0 GHz C-80 APUs and 4 GB RAM, a good machine but that's a different review) with Windows 7. Performance was OK but somewhat lethargic and, not being familiar with Windows 7 (which is vastly different than Windows XP and its predecessors), I didn't know how to proceed to overcome the lethargy.

Enter this book. After reading some of the chapters on Performance Improvements and following some of the directions, the difference is INCREDIBLE! Displays, menus, etc. snap into place and the text looks more readable also. I can't wait to have the time to read the rest of the book.

And that' should be easy. The author has a very readable, easy-to-follow, and often humorous style, and technical jargon is kept to a minimum. And he takes pains to explain why things are the way they are (there's often a good reason, even if it may not seem that way) and how to get around some of the tradeoffs that Microsoft made when designing Windows 7. And the chapter on Troubleshooting (more than 100 pages) looks like it's worth its weight in gold.

So, I can't recommend the book more strongly. Easily 5 stars.

So far, I am very happy with my purchase of this book. There is plenty of information here for those like me who are curious about their Windows 7 installation.
I have one gripe. The author and his editor chose to use the infantile "preventative" instead of the proper "preventive". I know, I know, I shouldn't be so picky, especially about a common error in an otherwise outstanding book but I am nonetheless. Except for the use of this ridiculous word "preventative", the book is a very useful resource for getting more out of Windows 7.
