Windows XP Books

December 20, 2001

A search at Amazon for Windows XP books turns up 80 books. Books for the Home and Professional versions. One book for the Registry, another about Windows XP networking, another is for security freaks. One book gives new perspectives to Windows XP. If you have reading problems they have visual books. You in a hurry? They have you covered. And finally they have you idiots and dummies covered too. Added in September were Multimedia, Advanced and Certification.

Note: Many of the 80 books found at Amazon were not yet published and we have not included them here. Those listed that are not yet published are listed only because they were scheduled to be published in December 2001 or earlier.

Best Sellers as Amazon

Will Be Big Seller When It's Published

I think everyone knows we're a big fan of the Missing Manual series and I see no Missing Manual for Windows XP - Yet. December 2001: We have learned that the Windows XP: The Missing Manual will be out in early 2002. The Home edition of the Missing manuals will be published in February 2002.
