5.0 out of 5 stars finally a book to unleash the power of Office 15 May 2013

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I work in environments where there is a vast power of technology just waiting to be unleashed. I am constantly frustrated at how tools like Outlook and SharePoint are under used.

This book is a great book to learn how to start to tap into the power of Office.

Just take Outlook for example -- this book helps provide ways to unleash the power of Outlook for project management and team collaboration / organization
4.0 out of 5 stars A great general intro to collaboration possibilities 13 May 2013
By Patrick O - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Some titles are misleading. Some are obscure. Some are too vague or general. Some say almost all there is to say about the book. This book's title really is one of the latter.

One, it's about Microsoft Office. More to the point it's about the new version of Office, though if you don't have the newest version there's still relevant information, but I think it might be frustrating when you notice how much the older versions can't do.

I have Office 365 University version. I also have Office 2010, Office 2007, and a few versions older. I'm a big fan of the new features, even though I'm wary about recommending an upgrade. It's a bit buggy, and has a tendency to crash at inopportune moments. This isn't about Office the product, however, this is about the book.

One of the great expanding features of Office over the years has been deploying the technology for group collaboration, even if you are not sharing the same computer, or network, or company or... Of course, there are features that expand the possibilities if you are on the same network and that network uses some of Office's lesser known elements. I've never heard of Lync, for instance, and since I don't have and won't have access to a Lync server, I probably won't ever have the ability to collaborate using it.

But, there's something for everyone in this book. Even if you have just the basic programs, Word, Powerpoint, Excel. I found the chapter on Onenote especially interesting, as I've long thought that program has potential well beyond its typical use. As a collaboration tool it takes on even more relevance, as it compiles the background work and research very neatly and accessibly.

This book doesn't go into a great deal of depth about any particular element of Office. It assumes you know the basics and addresses just those elements that can enhance collaboration. And it's certainly not just a book of instructions. There's a bit of philosophy of collaboration, a cheerleader of sorts, that is at the heart of this book. That's its most important feature, in my opinion, it tells you what can be done and helps you think in terms of collaboration possibilities.

I very much appreciate this book in helping me expand my own knowledge and understanding of what can be done. I am already taking steps to utilize the lessons and help others get involved in putting together group projects.
5.0 out of 5 stars Step by step guidance into complex areas 4 May 2013

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Some reviewers compare this with the "for Dummies" series, and indeed this book accomplishes just as much in enhancing the readers' understanding of Microsaoft Office. The goal here is more effective teamwork, and careful study of this book will help all achieve such a goal.
5.0 out of 5 stars Effective Teamwork Guide 1 May 2013
By J. Sullivan - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Effective teamwork strategies are detailed throughout the book along with the procedures and practices involved in utilization and setup of collaboration services, which allow exploitation of the collaborative features implemented into the Office suite. SkyDrive is covered, along with all of the benefits provided by the web app versions of Word, OneNote, Excel and PowerPoint and the sharing features and procedures available to these web app versions of their full-featured counterparts.

The SharePoint interface topic is beneficial for any team member, regardless of whether or not he or she is responsible for its implementation, as it provides an insight to the interfaces, providing familiarity with the system and the possibilities it provides. Coverage is provided for teams using the Lync services, as well.

This book reveals the variety of options which Office makes available, feature by feature for sharing, annotating, collaborating, granting permissions, creating groups and much more. This is a great book for getting the most from not only using the Office software in a team environment, but also for working productively and contributing positively to an effective team environment.
