Windows 7: A REALLY good book on Windows 7 ?

A REALLY good book on Windows 7 ?

Windows 7 Home Premium came with this machine. So far I love it,but I'm on a learning curve,having used XP Pro for 7 years.


Went out and bought "Windows 7 For Dummies"; it's been of limited help.I want something a bit more advanced/thorough,especially in terms of fixing problems and getting the most out of my machine..

Googling found a book called 'Windows 7: The Definitive Book" by William Stanek. Best price so far is $69.95,from The Book Depository ,in England (free p&h)

I'd be most grateful for opinions and advice about this book,or indeed,a better one.The price is about what I expected.

The Internet. Books just regurgitate stuff that's already available, and lot of people overlook the intro to Windows material available that comes with Windows.

Can't say I can recommend 'Windows 7 Tweaks' by Steve Sinchak since apart from a few points nothing much to learn that wasn't already known from XP - for me at least.

You never need books to learn about Windows. The best way to get used to Windows 7 is to use it, and ask questions as you come across them.
