    A must have for PC user

    I was given the task of taking over the books this year.
    Since I had no idea what QB was all about I researched the net and purchased this book.
    It is very useful and straight forward.
    However, I needed some fine tuned answers in some areas as these set of books were not set up by me.
    I decided to take up the "live community"
    link and ask for help.
    I was pleasantly surprised when the author answered my query personally. I further asked for other advice and she anwsered that too! A perfect example of going one step beyond.
    I would recommend her and her future books anyday!
    Bonnie Biafore you rock! Thank you!

    QuickBooks 2011; the Missing Manual

    This book looked extremely helpful, however it stated on the first page that it was written for PC users only. As I am a Mac user I had to return it. I will buy a QuickBooks manual for Mac users when one becomes available.
