I wasn't sure that it would be good, but since it included Table of Authorities I thought I'd try it out (as not many books include this feature). It is great, easy to understand, keeps about 2 pages for each feature and it is very easy to follow without all of the technical language of other books. Am thinking of buying other books in this line for Excel, PowerPoint etc. Even if you are one of those people who want a bit more depth, it would be great as a reference book for a quick look-up.

This book is very detailed. It's great if you want to become proficient. It may be too much if you just want an overview.
