Salve For Your Office Headaches!
Covers Office 2003, XP and 2000—And Perfectly Useful for Office 97, Too!

Is it the best thing since sliced bread? A bug-riddled piece of junk? Here, best-selling author Dan Gookin skillfully navigates between these two extremes, laying bare the best and worst of Office in order to help you achieve a single, all-important goal: working faster, easier, and smarter. You'll harness the real power of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook while avoiding their pitfalls—and you'll discover the ways they actually can be made to work together as a truly integrated suite. Dan Gookin's Naked Office means the end of Office-inspired headaches. (Well, the vast majority of them, anyway. He's not a miracle-worker, after all.)

Expert Instruction to Change Office Life as You Know It (for the Better)

  • Making a paragraph look the way you want it to look
  • Understanding how styles work and making them work for you
  • Locking a document to prevent changes, and tracking changes made by others
  • Using Excel as a database--and not just for numbers
  • Unraveling formulas and remembering what goes where
  • Organizing e-mail with Outlook
  • Getting the most out of Outlook's scheduling abilities
  • Unlocking the mechanics and philosophy of PowerPoint presentations
  • Oh, and of course--much, much more

    Beginners Only Please

    When I received my copy of NAKED OFFICE, I was excited to think that I would learn lots of new and different things about Office. I was very disappointed. As someone who has used Word, Excel and PowerPoint for the better part of 20 years, it offered me nothing new. And considering I never use Outlook, there was nothing there for me either. On the other hand, if you are just beginning to learn these programs, this is a MUCH easier read than the technical manuals that comes with the software package. 561 pages cover everything you could possibly want to know about these four programs. A 24 page Index and a 26 page Content Section give you plenty of options on how to look up things which makes it much easier that trying to find something in the Yellow Pages. The whole book is written in a lighthearted manner which makes it easy to read. The book is laid out in Parts. Each part covers a particular program ¿ Part 1 ¿ Word, Part 2 ¿ Excel, etc. Inside each part are chapters. The beginning of each chapter describes in an outline form what is found in that chapter so you don¿t have to hunt through the whole book to find what you want to do. There are graphics showing what the author is talking about and boxes which give great tips. There are even specially marked sections (with a little ¿Batman¿ figure!) with even more tips. For those of you needing a helping hand on Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook, this is the book that will help you achieve your goals. Whether it is creating a manuscript, planning a financial sheet, creating a slide show, keeping track of your daily activities or just simply sending email, Dan Gookin¿s NAKED OFFICE is the book to read.
