    Can anyone suggest some good Windows 7 books? I need something at least as detailed as the old Windows Secrets (Brian Livingstone) book with inside info on the OS. Is there an online list somewhere in the Woodys/Windows Watch site?

    In my opinion, the best windows 7 book available at present is "Windows 7: The Missing Manual". Available as an e-book, (downloadable in various formats), or as a printed book (more expensive). (A chapter was recently provided "free" to paid-up Windows Secrets subscribers. This triggered me to buy the full version...I do not regret my decision).

    It is available Here

    Edit: Corrected spelling.

    Woody Leonhard's "Windows 7 All-In-One for Dummies" is another good book. It is easy to find on Amazon.
