Steve Schwartz is uniquely qualified and readers benefit from his 30+ years of experience as a software expert, technical support director, magazine editor, and writer. Steve has written almost 60 books, many on Office and other Microsoft products, and has been using Office since the first version. Although this book is geared toward the beginning through intermediate user, Steve won¹t waste your time with pages of stories and analogies before actually discussing the topic at hand.
