Default I love David Karp...'-}}

I bought one Win 7 book thinking it would have the sort of info I needed and unfortunately it turned out to be pretty useless so I returned it today to my local Barnes & Noble. I was lucky that I checked B&N's computer books section again because David Karp's Windows 7 Annoyances was in stock--it wasn't last week which is why I bought the other book.

How could you not love a book with the following statement "...you should not be required to adjust the way you think in order to complete a task on your computer; rather, you should learn how to adjust the computer to work in a way that makes sense to you"?

Of course, individuals approach things differently so that what one person might find and a perfectly reasonable way of doing something drives another peson totally 'round the bend. The first book I bought touted the same sort of make it work your way but it didn't because I found that the author relied too heavily on Microsoft's rationale for Windows 7 but having bought Karp's previous Annoyances books and found them extremely useful, I'm looking forward to devling into his Windows 7 book. I'll report back after I've gotten past the preface which made me laugh out loud at least 5 times--the preface is only 3 page long...'-}}
