    Good First Choice

    I felt this book was well crafted and a good first book to start learning about WORD. It proved a little too simplified for my needs. However this was my fault. As is too often te case Enthusiasm was way ahead of Judgment. Although i founded it personLLY limiting at the same time i feel it should be praised for not trying to take on too much at once. So many manuals i have encountered have thrown me in at the deep end and i don't have a prayer of ever figuring anything out
