Greg Harvey has authored tons of computer books, the mostrecent being Excel Workbook For Dummies and Roxio EasyMedia Creator 8 For Dummies, and the most popular beingExcel 2003 For Dummies and Excel 2003 All-In-One DeskReference For Dummies. He started out training business userson how to use IBM personal computers and their attendant computersoftware in the rough and tumble days of DOS, WordStar, and Lotus1-2-3 in the mid-80s of the last century. After working for anumber of independent training firms, Greg went on to teachsemester-long courses in spreadsheet and database managementsoftware at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
His love of teaching has translated into an equal love of writing.For Dummies books are, of course, his all-time favorites towrite because they enable him to write to his favorite audience:the beginner.

I got a new computer and had the Microsoft Office 2007 added. I was working with Microsoft Office 2000 and with it came a book on how to use it. However Microsoft Office 2007 has changed a lot. I need a manual to go by, and no manual book came with 2007. The colleges have not changed their computers over to Microsoft Office 2007 and there are a lot of differences. This book helped me find some of the answeres to my questions. I am still going through it as I run into problems and change overs in information.

If you are an advanced user do not waste your money.This book is well written and properly organized for a novice. I was very disappointed being an advanced user. The small amount of information on the difference between to old and new versions of this software was the only thing that was worth my money. But I would have prefered another book on the actual use of the software and not an introduction. Again, If you are an advanced user do not waste your money.

It wasn't what I thought it would be. I was looking for a book to help me get started with basic tasks in excel. This was not the book for me.
