Are you a power user? Special Edition: Using Microsoft Office 2000 has what you're looking for: it will let you open up the hood and get your hands dirty tuning Office to run your way.
In addition to comprehensive reference material covering all of the Office programs--even Visual Basic for Applications--you'll find a host of secrets, hidden features and "hacks" you'll see nowhere else. Be warned: some of these tricks are for experienced users only. (One false move in the Windows Registry and you might find yourself looking at a reinstallation!) Don't be intimidated, though--even the most nervous will find Special Edition a goldmine of information and resources.
Great indexing lets you find what you need quickly, from absolute cell references to zooming, and the clear text and graphics will help you solve any problem--even ones you didn't know you had. The book comes with a CD-ROM containing Woody's Office Power Pack (a great set of Office utilities), the complete searchable text of the book and additional material covering Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a bundle of cool third-party software. If you've mastered the basics and want to improve your Office knowledge, let the professionals show you the way with Special Edition: Using Microsoft Office 2000. --Rob Lightner

I purchased Ed Bott's last book and use it constantly. (And I am familiar with both Mr. Bott and Woody Leonhard as resident gurus at PC Computing magazine.) I shopped around with Office 2000, and came back to them again.
This book IS the best one out there.
A quick scan of the inside front cover might disclose a tip you can use right away. Leaf through the interesting insert on the WOPR Power Pack and put the CD somewhere safe till O2000 is released in June. Check the 'Contents At A Glance' and you can probably go straight to the section you need forthwith. Read Chapter 1 and notice the blue text cross references that send you straight to a useful discussion. Leaf through the pages in search of the unique 'Ed & Woody' signature tips. Be sure to check out the Office 2000 installer. The Installer is itself a brand new Microsoft product and you'll meet it a lot in Office 2000 -- every time you decide to use a feature which is 'advertised', but not installed, on your system.
I am an avid peruser of Leonhard's Word 97 Annoyances book from O'Reilly Press. That small volume has been very helpful to me with Word 97. I use Word 97, often for hours at a time, week in and week out, and this book helps me cut the time I spend on editing chores.
I expect my copy of Special Edition Using Microsoft Office 2000 will help me even more. (I'm already using it with the Beta release of Office 2000.)
Speaking personally, I just do not have the time to waste on books which will not cut to the quick and answer my software questions. Bott and Leonhard give answers instead of tripe. That is why I bought this book. Now, if only the authors could write extensively on getting Word 2000 to work within PC Docs or other ODMA-compliant applications.
NOTE that this book does not cover some of the special Developer tools in Office 2000 Developer Edition. It also does not cover the Small Business Tools package.
Every chapter contains one final section: "Secrets of the Office Masters" which is often worth the price of the book itself. Add to this a registered copy of Woody's Office Power Pack on CD and no other book can touch the value and plain usefulness of this one. Just get it, and don't look back.
