"Special Edition: Using Word 2007" is better 13 Aug. 2007
By Brews - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book suffers from the "new" Microsoft viewpoint. For example, "toolbar" apparently is an unacceptable concept nowadays. At any rate, "toolbar" is not in the index.

Wonder where the "help" facility has gone in the new menu system? Well, "help" is not in the index either. Wonder how to paste an Excel Chart into Word as a picture (rather than linked to the spreadsheet)? Not in the index either: not under "Excel", not under "Paste".

My biggest objections to this book are its poor index and cross-referencing. As a comparison, Faithe Wempen's "Using Word" has a three-level index of 41 pages. "Inside Out" has a two-level index of 26 pages.

For a book of this type, used constantly to find how Word handles a particular problem, such failure is fatal.

A Book of Blather 28 Mar. 2009
By Nathan Packer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Where are the editors when you need them? The book was supposedly written by experienced authors, but they must have been paid by the word. Just removing the wordy phrase "need to be able to" would have shortened the book by pages. When I read the phrase "Planning up front is usually best," I had to ask just when planning behind was better. After reading the word "simply" time and again to modify a verb, (as in simply click) it was obvious the authors assumed the readers would be simpletons.

Insets such as notes and tips should be used sparingly to emphasize the special information found inside the inset. Too many insets are a sure sign that the body text on the page is lacking of information. When the front cover gushes about the "Supremely organized book and CD," you can rightly assume that this puffery is preparing you to overlook the mush inside. Supremely organized? Really?

There is content, but the poor sentence structure, the weak verbs, the misspellings, and the wordiness make this book a difficult read and a poor guide. The manuscript should have been sent back for a re-write.

Shortcomings 10 Oct. 2008
By Ed Parker - Published on
Format: Paperback
Word 2007 INSIDE OUT is a handy reference, but I found two things wrong with it and the first is enough to say I would not buy the book again knowing what I know now: the print is a faint gray, not black. To read this book you must have daylight or bright illumination in your room. I read a lot using a bedside light with a 75 watt bulb. It is a strain to read this book under moderate or low-level illumination. Second, for a reference book on Word I found nothing specific about field codes. Another book says field codes are rarely needed unless you are dealing with an older Word document. I think this is a serious omission. If someone can point out that I missed field codes in the book, I'll correct my submission of this review.

When will they make the info visually accessible???? 19 Dec. 2009
By S. Stevensen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, like so many other computer books, comes with a wealth of information that is so difficult to assimilate--because the editor not only fails to color code various types of info, but doesn't even bold the typeface so that it stands out from regular text. For example, every page lists software COMMANDS that could and should be listed in one color (say, orange). There are keyboard shortcuts that should be listed in another color (say, purple). There is always info the reader is told to enter from the keyboard, like URL's and many other types of input the reader told to enter from the keyboard at the cursor prompt (this data could be in a red typeface). And fourth, are listings of all kinds of software programs and operating systems, which I use the color blue to denote. The point is that all of this info would be so much easier to discern if it were differentiated from regular text. This book, like others, doesn't even bother to BOLD any of the above categories of data. Consequently, I spend weeks going thru the whole book color-coding this info with highlighters to differentiate the above data, when it could very easily should of been done by the editors before being sent to the printer. The first computer book company that starts incorporating these changes will easily outsell all of their competitors if they incorporate these reader friendly changes. Review from Scott Stevensen (
