I am a long term user of Microsoft Office, going back at least 3 versions. I consider my self an advanced user of many features and a more intermediate user of other features that are not needed on any regular basis in my job as a software development project manager. Office 2007 on Demand is a very visual book which steps you through the current version of Office in a very logical fashion. While it has separate sections for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, Access and Publisher, it also has a number of chapters on features, functions and usability that are common to the entire package. For new or intermediate users of previous versions, I believe this an ideal way to quickly get up and running with the 2007 version. It breaks features and functions down into logical, manaageable pieces, and presents them with clear examples and illustratons. There is ample use of white space on the pages so that the novice or intermediate user is not overwhelmed with the feeling they're being forced to read a reference manual. For power users the book is less useful since it doesn't go into a lot of depth on many advanced features such as the use of macros and Visual Basic for Applications. However, For advanced users of previous versions, this book will aid the transition to the ribbon interface and the new features. While there are a number of new features in Office 2007, the older features are still there, and most of them still use dialog boxes that are similar or identical to previous versions. The key is finding these features, I found that this book made the transition to the very logical ribbon interface fairly painless. Many have opted to avoid Office 2007 specifically because of the ribbon interface and the lack of a menus to help with the transition. Once you take the time to understand the new design, through the use of a book like this, I think you'll find the Office 2007 ribbon interface grouping is more logical and more usable than the menu driven versions. I found this book to be a great help making the transition, and even more valuable to my wife and son who are intermediate users.
