    A reviewer

    I just purchased this book today, and it's the best text I have seen on Microsoft Office 2007! I teach in Adult Education and this text is better than the ones used in class! I will watch for similar titles from this author in the future!

    I purchased this book to use for assistance in using Microsoft office for a course project. I am an adult learner ant the pictures complimented the instructions. A very easy read for the computer illiterate.

    The Book is valuable to any Computer Library.

    Since having reviewed the Step by Step Office 2007, I found this book to be the missing link. I believe the book should have a CD - ROM with information the reader can relate to. It would make the book a better introduction to Office 2007. I plan to keep this book in my Business Computer Library. At the time of this writing, I am only half way through the book. Microsoft created a series of books to learn their technology for a reader at any level. I recently completed the series with Vista. As a result, I plan to become a user with Windows Server 2008, using it as a Wordstation Operating System runing all of my Office Applications. I admit to being a fan of Microsoft products and plan to study their product line. It is very inspiring about improving the queality of everyday life for everyone. I recommend all of the Office Application 2007 book series.

    The book is awesome!

    This book is so well written and easy for anyone to follow at any level, even those with no training at all. It's a wonderful reference that accompanies the online free trainings that Microsoft offers when you have the Office programs. Thank you!
