    Not for beginners

    I was going from Word 03 to Word 07. There are many differences and I needed more info than included in this book. Therefore, I also bought a more complete manual that has more in-depth info, such as for mail merge. I am sure that I will use this book in the future when I have a quick refresher question. Generally I like DUMMIES books for reference.

    Not helpful

    This is an entertaining read, but not helpful as a troubleshooting resource. Plus, it lacks an index, and the "shortcut key" listing noted as being on the inside front cover.
