This Week in "Windows 8.1 Field Guide": Signing Off on the Final Manuscript Commented on: 29 weeks ago (March 30, 2014)

Nice work. Much easier to support this than the Windows Secrets type book, though I assume not nearly as much information as that type of book.
Thanks for the guide and "Indiana Paul" looks...

Nice book even though I know a lot about Windows 8, it is very well done and have supported it.
