Great Info - Tedious Read
I have the Nook Book and the first thing to note is that there is no table of contents. Quite a drag. So make sure you bookmark things you think you'll want to come back to because you'll have to scroll through the whole book to find it again.Was this review helpful?

I consider myself pretty savvy with common office software, but as the software changes so regularly it can be hard to keep up with the latest tricks. There was a lot of cool things that can be learned if you're using Outlook 2010.
I haven't read his other book that describes some of his overall methodology for task management, but I got the sense that the essence was in this book. I have however read Getting Things Done and this book integrates nicely with that technigue.
However the book can be fairly tedious to read. It attempts to deal with older version of Outlook and Mac versions. This is laudable, but the presentation is difficult since you have to skip sections and they're not labeled very clearly to know when the content reverts back to the version you're interested in.
The author also often goes into great detail and uses considerable space on subjects that he suggests are not overly useful or should be used sparingly. There is useful content in this, but again it seems like I want to skip large sections, not knowing when it is useful to start reading closely again for the most essential content.
I would recommend this book, but get ready to "work" through the tedious sections.
