    What a book!

    This book is written by Paul McFedries and published by Que Publishing Company. Paul is a Microsoft Office expert and a full-time technical writer. He's been writing since 1991 and has 70 books to his credit.

    Que has taken a very different approach to providing purchasers with a book. In addition to the printed copy that is purchased, you have access to other auxiliary services through Safari.

    Here, once you have registered your book, you have access to a web edition of the book, so that you need not have the physical book with you. Owning the book gets you access to a Safari account. This account will give you access to the supplemental, online features of the book once you convert to a paid account (which I did not do).

    More interesting are the Media apps referred to throughout the book. You access these on Safari; they provide video tutorials and audio sidebars. These are available wherever you have Internet access.

    In addition, there are Let Me Try It icons strategically located throughout the text. At these points you can try for yourself what has just been described. There is a step-by-step process for you to use. You can't go wrong!

    The book itself is 6 X 9 inches, soft cover, portrait orientation and has about 250 pages, including an 18 page Index. There are 10 chapters, each of which is packed with useful information, screen shots and tips of various sorts.

    The author points out that only three things are needed in order to access the Web Apps:
    A browser; most any browser will do
    Microsoft Silverlight; get it at www.microsoft.com/silverlight
    A Windows Live ID; get it at signup.live.com

    A further aid in using the Apps is SkyDrive, which is a cloud storage area provided by Microsoft. The author tells you how to sign up for it, how to access it and how to use it to store your data files.

    Most of the book is devoted to identifying the differences between the desktop and Web versions of the Apps. In later chapters, the author tells you how to use the Web Apps and how to make them accessible through SharePoint.

    Overall, this book is a detailed and understandable guide to the Microsoft Web Apps. There are several ways in which the book helps you to learn about and effectively use these Apps.
