New Windows 8 Books to Review

Media alert: December 13, 2012

Windows 8 is quite different than previous Microsoft operating systems, but you'll get up to speed quickly with the help of these two books.

In Windows 8: Out of the Box, Windows expert Mike Halsey starts with the basics and then takes you through the trickier parts of Microsoft's latest operating system. You'll quickly learn how to make the most of Windows 8 for work and entertainment, whether you use a touchscreen tablet, a laptop, or a PC.

With Windows 8 Hacks, author Preston Gralla shows that Windows 8 is still eminently hackable. You'll find more than 100 standalone hacks on performance, multimedia, networking, the cloud, security, email, hardware, and more. Not only will you learn how to use each hack, you'll also discover why it works.
