I'm one of the authors, and the CD that comes with this book contains the complete text of the book as an e-book. This means that you can keep the CD in your drive as you use your computer, and look items up in the CD's glossary, which serves as its index.
When we wrote the book, we had in mind intermediate Windows users -- people who already know the basics, but need to look up seldom-used commands and troubleshoot problems. We've included lots of step-by-step procedures as well as explanations of Windows concepts.
If you use Windows 98 or Windows XP, we have editions for those versions as well ("Windows 98: The Complete Reference" and "Windows XP: The Complete Reference") -- they also come with complete e-book editions on their CDs.
Maybe this is the book that should have come with Windows ME, since using help in Windows is maddening. I perused several books and this looked like the best of the bunch. It does cover tha basics fairly well. However, if you want more than that, and you want to know the what, where, how, and why of ME, get another book. The CD that comes with the book is essentially the book (only) on CD and it lacks an index, which (IMHO) is a glaring omission. I guess this can happen to any book, but after using it a few times the spine broke and only the cover was holding the two halves together. I'm a tweaker by nature, and I wanted more than general information. In spite of it's size (almost a 1000 pages) and its title ("The Complete Reference") it's not as complete as I need. It may be for you.
