    A reviewer

    I bought this book on the strength of my experience with Walkenbach's other Excel books, which were excellent. I expected to get information on how to USE the new Office 2007 features and on how to FIND all the old ones for the entire Office suite. This is important, because the entire user interface for 2007 has been redesigned--drop down menus are gone, etc. Unfortunately, the book reads more like a marketing release than a user guide. It tells the reader that many 'cool' new features exist, asserts they are superior to the 'old' ones, but too often does not tell you HOW to use them. For example, the complete discussion of Excel pivot tables is a statement that almost every aspect of pivot tables has been redesigned--that's it, that's all the information about pivot tables in the whole 1200 page book. There are other problems. Too much information is buried in 'tips' instead of being highlighted as a section header, which would make it easier to find in the Table of Contents. There is also a focus on telling the reader how to change the settings for certain features instead of explaining how the new features work and why it might be useful to change their settings 'Ok, I can change it, but why would I want to?'. There's very little guidance on how to find the old functions and menu items amongst the new 'tabs' and 'ribbons'--and contrary to their statements, the new locations are not always intuitive. Finally, the index is very high level only, which seriously limits its utility. If you're looking for a good Office 2007 guide, I'm afraid you'll have to keep looking, because this book isn't it.
