I mainly use Word, Outlook and Onenote (with the occasional spreadsheet in Excel), to me this book was let down by the fact the entire section on Onenote 2013 consists of a whole meagre paltry 2 pages! Seriously, you get far better information just by opening Onenote and looking at the tooltips. I couldn't quite believe it to be honest. Surely Onenote has long since developed into a mature and integral part of the Office experience and deserves far more than in-depth coverage in this sort of guide?

Other than that, the book is a nicely presented and user friendly (Beginner-Intermediate level) overview to Office 2013. The format for this series is simple: it gives a colourful overview of much of the software (usually a paragraph of information, a list of instructions and helpful pictures, with a few tip boxes etc.), giving no more than 2 pages on each topic (meaning you can get the information you need quickly and then get back to working). It is also good for skimming through and reading the parts you need to get a better all round understanding of how everything works. You won't become an Office "jedi" using this book, but you will become stronger and more efficient all round. It is also ideal for those with little experience of the main Office programs.

It is just a pity that it isn't the definitive guide. I will still keep it, for improving my knowledge of Office, but it looks like (being as I'm a completest freak) I will have to shell out again for a book on Onenote also (I see there is a dummies guide and a "plain and simple" book for it).

A very good book that has accomplished something that on the surface looks simple but in reality is very difficult, it has made learning Office 2013 easy, especially by the included screen-shots of what you are trying to accomplish. 10 out of 10.

A little complicated in places, but the illustrations are good even though you need a magnifying glass to read them.

As it says. Brilliant and at just the right price. Covers everything you are likely to need, especially for us silver surfers.

This is an extremely helpful guide to Office 2013, clearly ordered and illustrated, and easy to find one's way around. The book arrived in mint condition, too.

Gives a good overall working reference for Office 2013

As usual with this series of 'Brilliant .......', it turns out to be a very useful addition to the reference library of any home. Particularly useful for those niggling questions that start, 'There must be a way to do......', but you just don't know how.

This volume provides a splendid aid for training for Office 2013. The book is extensive and being in colour really helps. For the money, it is exceptional value.

Having been using an old version of Word for many years I found this to be very helpful in learning to use the latest offering.
