books are recipe books for computer users. They answer the question, “How do I . . . ?” by providing a quick set of steps to accomplish the most common tasks with a particular operating system or application. The sets of steps are the central focus of the book. QuickSteps
sidebars show how to quickly perform many small functions or tasks that support the primary functions. Notes, Tips, and Cautions augment the steps, presented in a separate column to not interrupt the fl ow of the steps. The introductions are minimal rather than narrative, and numerous illustrations and fi gures, many with callouts, support the steps. About the Author
