This pocket guide is a wonderful quick reference for those who want to complete tasks in Word quickly without having to refer to some huge manual, or slog through page after page of online help in search of a specific command to use. This pocket guide contains a section for common tasks, reference tables for keyboard shortcuts, and a whole part near the book's end devoted to online Word resources and other related books. Among the topics covered in this guide: template and document files, shortcut menus, "Word tasks (inserting and editing text, formatting paragraphs and creating lists, working with tables, etc.)," and even a brief description of how Word works. I like the thought of being able to refer to a small book to find a specific command I need which saves me time that can be better spent working on a document. Definitely a handy book to have around while working in Word.
