"The book covers KDE in an incredible amount of detail. In fact, except for application development, a KDE user may not even need any other reference material than this book. The two chapters on KDE development were a bit thin, however, the books is aimed at those new to KDE, so only a brief introduction to KDE programming is warranted...."

"Part II covers customizing KDE. It is amazing how customizable Linux is. You can make your Linux box look just about any way you want and this section shows you how to do just that. It also covers themes and the CD-ROM includes the KDE themes gallery from themes.org...."

"One of the reasons the book is able to cover so many topics is it is well laid out with clear and concise explanations. The book is designed so you can put it down at the end of a chapter, work with KDE and come back to it. Teach Yourself KDE in 24 Hours makes excellent and liberal use of graphics throughout the entire book. Explanations are backed up with screen shots and icons that let you know of various tips, call attention to possible pitfalls or to clarify concepts."
