This is a much larger book than my other one (Microsoft Office 2013 Explained) which I've also reviewed, and covers every aspect of the new Microsoft Office 2013 in a great deal of detail, which I find very helpful when I want to know more than the basics. I really love the way it is presented in a reassuring, informative and often amusing way which helps dispel the panic and worry when facing a new system. All the Dummy books are excellent, I have found over the years and I can recommend this one too.
Arguably, of all the various written guides to Office 2013, the most user-friendly, in that it really is written in a manner which, while not being remotely patronising, is comprehensible to those who either have limited computer experience, little or no experience of Office 2013, or - especially if no longer young and so perhaps rather 'phased' by things technological- lack confidence or self-belief in trying to get to grips with this extensive and powerful programme.
Im a major dummy, Queen of the dummies if you will. I have no internet in my house, no laptop,landline, sky etc nothing. Im boring and useless and not your average 31 year old. After buying this book and a laptop, I am an Office legend. If I can do it, anyone can. Dogs and cats included.
If you have used a recent version of Office before then you really don't need this book. Most of what it provided was a staement of the obvious and there was little added value. If you are new to Office then it would be invaluable.
