This is an excellent book for anybody wanting to do more with Outlook - and so much more can be done. I started reading as a novice with a very rudimentary abilty to write code (picked up from the need to write Access Visual Basic). I finished by writing a critical application based on Outlook/Exchange to track business projects for my company. I have purchased other computing technical referrence books in the past only to find that the Microsoft Help screens contained as much or more than the referrence book I had just purchased. This book however is very different and definitely in a class of it's own.
