I've started using Office365 and struggle with some of it. So I bought this book and was suprised at the quality. Looks like a rush job with spelling mistakes etc.

I was not impressed with the content either, felt more like a sales pitch for Office365, kept telling me how great it is and what you can do with it - but not how to do it.

I had in fact bought the wrong book as I realise what I struggle with is SharePoint. Have since bought 'How to Do Everything Microsoft SharePoint 2010 [Paperback]Stephen Cawood' but not started reading it yet.

Dreadful. The normal "** for dummies" book is a very useful and much more readable version of the user manual. Lots of tips and helpful guidance.

However, this book is a rewrite of a Microsoft sales person's sales pitch for the Cloud and Microsoft products in general. If you want to know how to use or get more from Office 365 - this is not the book you want. How it got past the publisher of the "for dummies" series I have no idea.

This book is propaganda for Microsoft. I have been using Office since 1995, but I could not make any sense of this book. Firstly, it is written in managerialese and not in English. Secondly, it is geared towards IT managers and not towards the individual user. Thirdly, it has little "How to do this" information. It certainly is not for Dummies and the publishers should be ashamed for having agreed to put it in their otherwise-excellent series.

I bought Office 365 because I use Word and Excel on my home computer for personal items. As with other Microsoft 'for dummies' books the information is accurate and good but as before I find the authors expect a little too much of their readers. However with patience I nearly always find answers to my queries within the book.

Quite like the book and it is up to similar standard as other 'FOR DUMMIES' books.

i was advised to get this book by one of Microsoft's main independent IT providers (UK). provides a good basic overview of the application.

This publication is written in a non technical way which makes it very easy for non-technical people to understand. I am able to do much more with Office 365 than I could with Office Home & Student.

The book is very good at explaining basics of working with 365 as regards business use. If one is using 365 for personal use only one needs to sift through a lot of detail

This book did not give me the information I required. rather complicated, and possible ok if you are running an office, but not really suitable for home users

I bought Office 2007 for Dummies (the 8 books in 1, by Peter Weverka) and found it really very helpful. I am now thinking moving to Microsoft 365, both for personal use and for a small charity that I am involved with, and so I bought this book thinking it would help me understand 365. But it's not nearly so well written as the Weverka one, and it really reads like a sales pitch rather than an objective assessment of what 365 is, its advantages and disadvantages, and how to use it to best effect. Disappointing.

My other books in this series have been comprehensive 'starter' guides to the subjects covered.
I wanted to 'learn' Office 365 as a newcomer to Office. This book assumes a non-dummy knowledge and is really a guide to business users: much advanced guidance on using Office 365 as a business tool. I am a new Windows 8.1 user with the Office software installed and needing to know what it offers and basically how to use it. The book doesn't help me...
