The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Killer PC Utilities/Book and Disks':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Part one of the book is a very simplistic overview of Intel based personal computers, primarily concentrating on hardware. There is little to be gained from this section, although novice users may find it gives them an introduction to the jargon. Part two is significantly better. Still dealing with hardware, it demystifies a lot of what is "under the hood": probably enough to give most users enough confidence to take a peek. The information is varied, sometimes useful and often not, but generally interesting at least. Part three deals with troubleshooting. While it provides a lot of information, in my experience it misses the most common problems in favour of rarer ones. Data recovery, in part four, is disappointing. The final section lists and briefly describes the "killer utilities". Suffice it to say that I still use DOS on a daily basis, and only a few of these programs are even mildly interesting. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1997
