found in my local library "windows vista inside out" by ed bott, microsoft press. An excellent book still reading it. I recommend it to other members.

I have it, it's excellent and an easy read.

Vista for dummies in my local library.

I do find the dummies and idiot guides to be excellent but in most cases after you're run through them a couple of times they are fairly useless if you know what I mean. They are good when first learning but not really much use as a reference guide is what I'm trying to get at. But you can get them out of your library, work on it for a few weeks and then return it.

Vista Inside Out is on my bookshelf alongside XP Inside Out and Windows Server 2003 Inside Out.

Excellent series of books, I couldn't agree more.

Vista for Dummies
Vista Inside out

Would those be the 2 best books for an average home user to buy ?

Any other recommendations?

Dummies is good and "everyday". Inside Out is an easy read but more of a reference book.

goto your library and take out a selection of books on vista. I found "vista insideout" an excellent read, the dummy series are not my cup of tea but popular with a lot of people.

Any votes for "Brilliant Microsoft Windows Vista" by Steve Johnson? It certanly looks pretty.

concise..... not seen this one, i'll pop down to the library if they do not have it i'll ask them to order it in from another branch. I could have done with all these books when i ran the beta but got fed up with dual booting and dvd vista problems and deleted vista in january.
