Awesome and Informative Book Feb 19, 2006
This book is a very informative and well written book, with the exception of some grammer issues (the author uses waaaay too many commas. It gets annoying). The book deals with tweaking the windows GUI and system functions, as well as internet hacking, and pranking. It dosen't go into depth about pranking as much as might be expected, but only spends one chapter out of five talking about them specifically, and breifly mentions how tweaks can be applied as pranks. On the whole, this is a very informative book for the beginner to intermedite user.
NOTE: If you buy it used, be sure you get a copy with the CD!!!
