Editorial Reviews

Henderson (technical support and author) and Soares (technical writer) have written this guide for beginning and intermediate users. Each section is conceived independently of the others, making this a handy reference. New features include: a project gallery and office art in Office; a formatting palette and several new proofing tools in Word; euro conversion, list manager, and improved data import from FileMaker and other programs in Excel (a spreadsheet program); thumbnails of slides, multiple slide masters, and new transition effects in PowerPoint. The fourth program, Entourage, is a new email, calendar, address book program that can be synchronized with a handheld computer. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
