 11This book is written for computer literate folk who want to use
 12Mercurial to manage their data, but are uncomfortable using the command
 13line client to do so. Since TortoiseHg is a Windows shell extension it's
 14assumed that the user is familiar with the Windows explorer and knows
 15how to use it.
