Reviews - What do customers think about Windows XP Professional Little Black Book?

Little Black Book = Waste of time and money  Sep 22, 2004
Pay close attention to the word "Little" in the title. I own "Black Books" for Windows 95 and 98 and have learned all kinds of interesting things about how to make those operating systems work better for me. Apparently the publisher and author of this "Black Book", have decided that adding the word "Little" to the title means that they can get by with putting "little" worthwhile information within the covers. Their total intent seems to be to insult my intelligence. I've only had XP installed on my computer for about eight days, and I already know more about XP than this book teaches. I would say that it might have made a half way decent "Dummies" book, but I hate to insult the "Dummies" line of books. If you need to know about XP, buy a different book. The only reason I gave this book 1 star, is that this site would not let me rate it lower.
Little Black Book = Concise Information  Nov 1, 2003
Apparently, others that have read this book would rather read hours upon hours of mindless drivel instead of finding useful information fast.

This book is extremely useful for locating step-by-step instructions on how to perform tasks in XP without wasting your time reading 10 pages with the instructions mixed in. It literally shows on one line what the objective is and then each step one after the other under the objective. It is well indexed.

Network administrators like myself do not have time to fiddle about with inane, cursory, meaningless information and need the information quickly and concisely. It does not mean we "do not need to be using XP" as another reviewer stated. It simply means we are very, very efficient and choose not to waste our employer's nor our clients' time sorting through a bunch of trash to get information.

The book is quite useful and if you are running XP, it would be a good reference to have.

Little Black Book = Little Black Hole for your $  Mar 14, 2003
One of the most useless books I've seen; If you need the rudimentary information provided in this book, you probably shouldn't be tampering with XP in the first place.
