A Must Have For Any PC User, Saturday, November 26, 2005

Andy Walker being the well known tech journalist, the book is a steal. It's a must have for any pc user whether you're a novice or advanced user. The book just shows the extreme amounts of tech knowledge he really has, just from reading the book I could tell it's only the tip of the iceberg relatively speaking. The book is great as is his easy to use website; . This book will definitely help protect you online, as it does for me. Just having the book near your pc is like a help desk at your fingertips. If you are pc user who doesn't have a troubleshooting book, this would be a worthy choice.
