    I spent the $17 on this Nook book looking for an answer to a specific question about linking text boxes using the Publishing Layout in Work for Mac 2008. The Table of Contents led me on a wild goose chase, the index was of no help at all, the search feature just spins in place. I am so disappointed that I have wasted $17 and still don't have an answer to my question.

    Very useful

    I found the examples to be very useful. Even though the Mac is intuitive, it's still helpful to gain additional insights.
