Overview

Mac OS X, Apple's super-advanced, Unix-based operating system, offers every desirable system-software feature known to humans. But without a compatible software library, the Mac of the future was doomed.Microsoft Office X for Macintosh is exactly the software suite most Mac fans were waiting for. Its four programs—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage—have been completely overhauled to take advantage of the stunning looks and rock-like stability of Mac OS X. But this magnificent package comes without a single page of printed instructions.Fortunately, Pogue Press/O'Reilly is once again there to rescue the befuddled and overwhelmed—with Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual. It tackles each of the primary Office applications with depth, humor, and clarity, and provides relief for the hapless Mac user who'd rather read professionally written printed instructions than hunt through a maze of dryly written help screens.Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual is coauthored by a dream team of Macintosh experts: Tonya Engst, coeditor of the popular TidBITS Macintosh newsletter; David Reynolds, former executive editor of MacAddict magazine (now working at Apple); and Nan Barber, Macworld contributor and coauthor of Office 2001 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual, on which this book is based. Once again, the authors are joined by series founder David Pogue, who has closely edited the book to ensure excellence of depth, accuracy, and prose.

This guide covers the number one bestselling Mac software, with dominant word processor and spreadsheet programs. This edition is completely revamped for Apple's new operating system with a steep learning curve for users upgrading from previous versions.

She works as a freelance writer and editor from her home near Boston, and is managing editor for Salamander, a magazine for poetry, fiction, and memoirs.

Tonya Engst is best known for her work on TidBITS, a free email and Web publication covering the Macintosh Internet community, which she co-founded in 1990.

She has also sold Macintosh computers, and she has worked for Microsoft first doing product support and, much later, editing the Office Web site. She has also written extensively for print magazines such as Macworld and NetProfessional. Tonya works from her home office in Ithaca, New York. Her husband, Adam, works just across the hall while her son, Tristan, hangs out down the street at day care when he isn't home "helping" by spreading glitter glue around.
