I found this book excellent for the novice computer geek. The book explains the possible senarios and then tells you various ways to fix it.The book covers everything from Monitors to Hard Drives and is multi platform. (PC and MAC)

A computer nerd I am not but when I found this book and read a few of the words I came to have a much better understanding of my desk top computer and what to do when I have a problem. Easy reading and presented in a great humorous way. If you don't have this book for your computer rush out right now to the nearest bookstore or better yet order it direct from .com. Your dollars will be well spent and you can show off your technical skills to friends and family.

I dont know a thing about computers. When my mac went down, i grabbed the geeks guide off my shelf (my mom had bought it the week before) and believe it or not, i found the problem, and the book told me how to fix it, saving me a hefty bill to get it repaired. This is probably the first computer book i have read that is actually useful! Well done the Geek Squad

Great book for the person who know nothing about their computerother than to turn it on. It is an excellent overview with wittyinsights and tidbits you will not find in one of the DRy computer fordummies or anything like it. I enjoyed reading and would recommend itto anyone. These guys rock! Go geeksquad!...

I first tried to find this in five bookstores all of which were sold out. It is an refreshing read compared to most computer books. I found it informative, entertaining and most imporantly helpful.

This is the best "how to" computer book I have seen. They use language that is understandable and fun to read. I highly recommend this book.

This book is uninteresting and insulting to intelligence. The inside is as cartoony as the outside. Don't think that this is a basic "you, meet the computer" book. Its just a nice play with your head title with little substance "reference" book.

Highly recommend this book to anyone who has to deal with computers. Easy to understand instructions and tips for solving, and avoiding, problems.
