I also liked that Woody Leonard was a co-author, because I had LOVED his Office 2003 Timesaving Techniques for Dummies . I really wish he had done another version for 2007 so you didn't have to wade through everything else to get to the info that can really help you get work done faster and easier.
Anyway, this is a good, fairly comprehensive book on the core Office programs...
+ There's a lot of great information about making the most of the new versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
+ And when you're having issues, it's easy to check the index and find what you need (although if it's not in the index, check the Table of Contents...some longer discussions that are listed in the TOC are not in the index, for some reason.)
- If you're looking for information on Outlook with Business Contact Manager or OneNote, however, you'll be disappointed. BCM isn't mentioned at all and it doesn't say much on OneNote beyond what you get in the program itself.
Finally, the obvious problem with an all-in-one manual is that they can't include everything. There was a new Word function I had hoped to learn about that they didn't include, so I ended up getting a separate Word-only book for that. But I spend most of my working life in Word, so most people will probably be fine getting just this book.
From several sources, I ordered what seemed the best match of quality and price. The order was confirmed right away, the book arrived before the promised delivery date, and it was in perfect condition. Well packed too.
A very satisfactory outcome.
