Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 059600009X, Paperback)

A few years ago, software publishers decided to stop shipping manuals with their software, and instead rely on online help that's built into the software. The problem with this approach--for starters--is that in order to use online help you have to go into the program and find it. Additionally, no one really likes to read text on a computer screen, and it's hard to find the same page twice. Enter Windows Millennium: The Missing Manual. This brilliant book explains everything that you need to know to use and enjoy Microsoft's everyday OS, yet manages to be fun to read. If you never really have used a computer before, or if you're trying to expand your knowledge beyond the limited procedures that you've learned on the job, you'll appreciate the contents of this well-written guide.

Author David Pogue earned his stripes in the Macintosh community--he's immensely popular among Mac fans--but he's made the transition to Windows admirably. He approaches Windows Me's features (including Outlook Express and Internet Explorer) one at a time, and explains how to use each. His approach is detailed without being dull, and friendly without being fluffy or flippant. Newcomers who need lots of guidance will find this book a handy tutorial, and independent users who need to do a bit of research from time to time will find it a handy reference. --David Wall

Topics covered: Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (a.k.a. Windows Me) for beginning and intermediate users. The author explains the essentials of files, folders, and icons, and proceeds to document the Control Panel. Appropriately, the Internet gets a lot of attention, and there's fine coverage of setting up a small local area network (LAN), including one that employs Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
