"While I can say I learned enough from the book to use Emacs
(I'm using it to write this review), I would hesitate to
recommend this book to anyone else. The biggest problem I found was
the sheer number of typos it contained. In addition to that, the
accompanying CD-ROM is not well-organized, either."
"I am amazed at just how powerful Emacs is, and this book does a
good job of introducing a new user to the sheer number of features
available in it. The authors also did a very good job of choosing
the right amount of material to allow someone to use Emacs without
overloading them. I wish they had spent a little more time on such
things as regular expressions and the Windows installation
"Unfortunately, the large number of errors contained in the text
along with the confusing layout of the accompanying CD almost keep
this book from being usable by its target audience: beginners. I
would expect that the next release will have corrected these
problems, and then it will be an invaluable addition to the
beginning Emacs user's bookshelf."
