This is the book commonly used by trainers for Lotus Smartsuite 97. It has mainly helpful topics on the main products of SS97. Where it falls short is on its teaching concepts (like Microsoft Press use of step-by-step approachs). Furthermore, it seems like the author used the older version of SS97 to write the book. Mainly, the book is poorly proofread (examples/formulas/concepts). They also fail to show you that Screencam is an included product of SS97 on the front cover!!! I feel like Sandra Eddy or another author should rewrite the book and make it more focused on SS97 applications (by thoroughly testing out examples and formulas with the updated Lotus 1-2-3 97 and included patches). Sybex needs to make a second edition of the book and do a serious rewrite. Otherwise, it provides decent help and is comparable to Lotus SS97 for Dummies (but not as fun reading!).

The Lotus SmartSuite on-line help is better and that is saying something. This book doesn't have any real detail. It doesn't go any way towards describing how to solve of the standard things expected of a word processor. There's nothing in it except very basic instruction for beginners. It certainly isn't going to help anyone master anything. It's very thick and has a shiny cover and it's a complete waste of money.

In the first three pages of explanations of 1-2-3 @ functions, there were six mistakes. These are not typos, but misstatements and incorrectly written formulas. It rendered the whole book useless to me, because I don't know if the other areas are accurate or not.
