    Poorly Done--

    The problem is--this isn't written for Dummies. If it were, the book would begin with the basics--how to create a basic spreadsheet, document, or presentation (one at a time not altogether I might add). Granted once you learn one program the rest will be easier, but teaching them all at once is very confusing because you have to hop around all over the place in your computer. Later on we could learn about iCloud & sharing because while these are very nice capabilities you don't really need to know that right off the bat. I believe iWork is a superior product to MicroSoft Office, but the Dummies editions for MicroSoft are far superior to this one. Perhaps a non-former Apple person should write it.
