By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 April 2009
Format: Paperback
Google Docs provides online access to word documents, spreadsheets, and presentation software. By accessing this system, anyone can use the programs and create documents completely free of charge. In this way, there's no need to buy updated software.

As I read through Google Docs for Everyone, I noted a variety of very useful features. The most obvious advantage is that I could give another person in another city access to my work to edit or proofread with minimal trouble. There is even a chat option so I could talk while working together.

There are also a variety of other little features that could make my life a little easier. I liked that I could organize files into coloured folders for easy access and that I could even place a single file in more than one folder then when updated the file saved in all locations. Using this system, I can also create and use templates not just for word processing documents but also for spreadsheets.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide that is still pretty current 20 Sept. 2010
By Abacus - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Google Docs started in 2006. This book was written in late 2008. So, it is almost two years out of date. Given that the related programs seemed to be updated every few weeks, I thought this would be a big hurdle for this guide. But, it was not because the programs have not changed that much.

This is an excellent guide that beat the Dummies series to the punch. Indeed, the Dummies series released all sorts of guides on Google, Google Apps, etc... but, none focused on Google Docs.

There have been a few changes. For instance, within the doc program. The guide mentioned you could save a document as a copy (pg 35); Now, instead you make a copy. Additionally, the document styles are in a completely different area. They were under Edit (pg. 45). It is now located under Format, and it is called Document Settings. After clicking on those menu items, you finally get a Document Styles box that looks the same as in the book. Also, print settings (pg. 41) are a lot more limited than all the choices shown in the guide.

Besides those inevitable discrepancies due to the passage of time, the book is excellent. It does a very good job at explaining the detailed workings of each three programs (doc, spreadsheet, presentation) and how to share those documents with others.

Google docs is quite revolutionary and is becoming an increasingly relevant competitor to the PC based MicroSoft Office suite. Apparently, numerous corporations have adopted Google docs. I write all my book reviews using docs as I prefer it to Word where I am tired of fighting distracting automated features. Anyone using the internet should give Google docs a try. And, this guide facilitates such efforts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Keeping Up with Google Docs 24 Jun. 2011
By Gloria Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this in April or May of 2011 and it is, unfortunately, a little outdated, but it is still helpful when you are dealing with procedures Google has not already revised. And it is much better than plowing through thousands of discussions in the Google help section to find the solution to a problem you are having.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like technology, it becomes outdated quickly 16 July 2013
By K. Harrison - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since Google Docs is now called Google Drive, there needs to be a new edition. But the most annoying thing was the poor editing. My copy had incorrect headings, and chapter 7 repeated itself halfway through.
