Being a long-time Apple Mac aficionado, I was a bit reluctant to take the "Windows" route for word-processing. However, when my girlfriend showed me that Word, in particular, was still the most comprehensive tool in this field, I decided to take the challenge and bought myself Office for Mac 2011, Home and Students version which I promptly installed on my iMac (which I had recently updated to OS X 10.7 "Lion"). Now all I needed was some help for me to get to grips with Office for Mac's idiosyncrasies.

Being a bit of an IT dummy myself, what better way to learn than to buy the latest tome in the "Dummies" series of manuals, which are written especially for those like me. Office 2011 for Mac for Dummies fits the bill completely. It is sectioned and indexed in a way that really helps those who are not really of a technological bent - like me - and it is written in a sympathetic way without ever being patronising.

I am now really getting to grips with Word. Excel may be the next mountain that I attempt to climb, but knowing that easily-assimilated advice is at hand, I no longer feel like a technophobe.

I am finding this book hard work to understand even though it is for dummies. The instructions are not very clear, more examples are needed to explain the text, especially for Excel.

The friend for whom I purchsed the book has informed me that it was simple enough and well laid out so that even he, completely new to the world of Macs, could follow the steps and achieve all that he needed to do. The tasks he found almost impossible to fathom out without the book were all achieved with its aid.

Excellent reference book. It's everything I expected. Have never been disappointed with any book of the "Dummies" series. Like it a lot.

Like many books it often does not answer your particular question.

The things I wanted to know weren't covered. For example, I went to the labels instructions. Here, you are told how to print a whole sheet of the same label, or how to print one label only. I wanted to print a whole page of different labels, but no instructions are given for this!
