I dislike the Dummies books

Taken with my phone

Getting ready to leave Barnes & Noble where my daughter and I were working on our laptops. I decided to quickly browse the computer books and saw red when I saw so much yellow and black.

I frequently get asked what computer books I recommend. While I don’t keep up with all the new books available, I do recommend NOT buying any book with the word dummies on it.

My dislike of these books stem from the extreme negative angle they portray. To me, starting the learning process from this negative place puts the learner at a disadvantage. Instead, get a visual learning or beginner book.

You are not dumb.
