Review:

You might say that Peter Norton's Inside the PC, Seventh Edition, is the theoretical counterpart to the Peter Norton Guide to Upgrading and Repairing PCs. Inside the PC will appeal to the computer hobbyist who feels a sense of urgency about knowing how systems work and the significant details about subsystems, technologies, and how the machines are made. This readable and entertaining (by computer book standards, that is) guide to hardware and operating systems is an excellent starting point for indoctrination into the deepest mysteries of the PC.
