After upgrading to Office XP and previously used "Woody Leonhards teaches Office 2000 book", which was great, I chose to purchase his "Special Edition using Office XP", written with Ed Bott. This book seems massive at first, but it is written in very understandable language and I could not do without it next to my PC. The authors assume that you have at least some nodding acquaintance with Windows software - so if you are a complete novice then the Office 2000 book would be more suitable.
The addition of WOPR XP/2002 software, which comes as a free download (fully licensed), when you purchase the book is worth the price of the book alone!! Great value for money and these guys do know their stuff. Do not hesitate, either buy it for yourself or drop hints for someone to buy this as a gift.

Nice if you want to learn the more advanced features Office, like how to create a macro or use VB. Otherwise if you just use office to do tasks such as add a chart to a spreadsheet, this is probably not for you. Hence not really for the beginner
