What did I learn from the book that I wouldn't have learnt from just continuing in the way I've always done things on Publisher? I'd never come across the design checker, that should be useful, nor had I come across the equation editor, which I guess that I won't ever use, but at least I know where it is if I ever do. The closing chapters on how you can use Publisher to design a website and for mail merge projects are fascinating and make me want to give them a try. For instance, if you send out e-mail newsletters, there's a way to send them out individually rather than as a carbon copy to an address list. Must try that.
I find that Brien Posey's personal approach to the subject as an occasional rather than a professional graphic designer is appropriate for Publisher. I use the program for designing booklets - my main work - but it's a program that aims to cater for anyone who needs to drop in to design and print the occasional poster, leaflet etc, so heavy-handed industry standard professionalism wouldn't have been an appropriate starting point for 'Using Microsoft Publisher'.
The only reason that the book just fails - and it only just fails - to get 5 stars in my review is that there's a lot of useful discussion about colour selection and colour printing but the screen shots are all in black and white.
Whereas Word is meant mainly for text documents with perhaps an image or two here and there, Publisher focuses on layouts. Text is set up in blocks and graphics (photos, clip art, images) can be manipulated, placed, and even layered. This makes Publisher a better choice for making newsletters and brochures or setting up letterhead templates.
My initial impression of Publisher was that it would be great for small one or two page jobs. However, the author of Using Microsoft Publisher 2010, states that with the 64 bit version, publishing a book using Publisher is possible. Interesting, especially given that the book shows how to create and modify templates for consistency and how to import word text (and excel charts and graphs) into these layouts.

This is for a re-vamp or re-write on a series of ten wood turning books,written with DTP, which are at present selling the world over.
Out of the three reference books I purchased, the book "using microsoft publisher 2010" has proved to be the best,it has the easiest reference system, not too expensive, it is also easy to understand the step by step instructions. Keep it near your Pc.
I have already used an earlier edition of Publisher so wasn't a complete novice. I also use Adobe Photoshop. If I had wanted on line help there is a lot of free information obtainable via the internet. The illustrations depicting the 'Publisher' screens was so badly printed it was unreadable.
The book was not worth the paper it was printed on.
