Personally, using any non-Unix OS is annoying just because it isn't Unix, but it's certainly true that Win98 reaches new heights for ticking you off. This book recognizes that and gives you the tools you need to make it at least somewhat better.
The author isn't a Windows basher, but neither is he a Windows apologist. He obviously knows his subject, but isn't wearing any rose colored glasses: he gives Win98 credit for those parts that are done well, but pulls no punches on the rest.
If you have Win98 machines as clients, this should be a useful reference. It's an enjoyable reading experience, and you'll probably learn a thing or two. The book includes a CDROM with a demo version of the O'Reilly Windows 98 Utilities.
Most of the information in this book is also available at www.annoyances.org.
