From Library Journal:

Laughter is a balm for many an ill, even those induced at the keyboard. Russell uses humor to make several basic points--save often, make backups, don't use arcane commands, and remember that you're always smarter than the machine (as long as you're not in a rush). Murphy's Laws of DOS is dotted with laws, pronouncements, rules, and maxims that are both funny and accurate, such as "the computer only crashes when printing a document you haven't saved." This laugh track has five parts, starting with the basics of DOS, running through hardware and software essentials, and, finally, ending with a variety of solutions (in the form of programs and commands). Russell admits that you won't find all the answers you're looking for in his text and seriously advises you on "how to cultivate a nerd" for on-the-spot aid. The volume is designed for manual problem solving, with a detailed index and well-designed pages, but it also works as a hilarious page turner.
