    Great reference

    This book helped me uncover many of the nuances of Word. It's a reference that I'll keep handy when I'm using Word. It's easy to follow and well organized if you need to look something up later. I'm glad I made the investment.

    The Title Says it All

    This book is indeed meant for 'dummies' Anyone with the least amount of experience fiddling around with ms word will find themselves constantly going through the table of contents looking for stuff they haven't already figured out by trial and error. However,the shortcut info is very helpful.
