I was not overly keen on Roman's style of writing, which seemed to me to be a little condescending, and seemed to be talking down to me. Okay, so I am not VBA WOM expert - that's why I bought the book - but I don't need reminding of the fact! Sometimes Roman refers to me as "you" and sometimes the somewhat grating "we". At times I feel like a stupid kid!
For its shortcomings, this is actually a really useful book. It goes beyond the help files supplied with Word, and it does help open up the subject - something which someone who just wants to get the most out of the word processor might otherwise find a little inaccessible.
It covers the fundamentals of programming in a little under 70 pages in a very clear manner. Some things seem to be missing further in - maybe things which are not within the scope of the book - but I would have liked to be shown how to add a new floating toolbar with custom controls which I have created. The final polish for VBA applications.
And some really important stuff is mentioned almost as an aside such as "referencing a project".
Word Macros are far more than "macros" - and this book goes a long way to help users of Word get the most out of it.
It continues the excellence found in all the O'Reilly books
