More About the Author

Hi everyone!

I'm a Microsoft Office MVP and a professional document consultant. I specialize in working with global companies to develop enterprise solutions for implementing their branding in Microsoft Office content.

Outside of computer pursuits, I'm a runner and a bit of a fitness geek in general, and spend much of my time on other favorite hobbies, including studying wine and Enlightenment-era history.

You can reach me through my blog - arouet dot net - which is often neglected but never ignored... So, if you need an answer to a Microsoft Office question you can't find online or in my books, you can send me email from that site. You'll also find links there to existing articles, webcasts, and other content, more information about my books, and information on new and upoming publications.

Thanks for visiting!

This book is quite amazing.

It starts assuming that I know the basics, which I do, then it gives me a little overarching conceptual story, then goes on to really good nuts and bolts.

Instructions are easy to follow.

Whom would your boss rather have on staff: an expert on Microsoft Office System 2007 or an expert on creating effective, easy-to-manage office documents?

Stephanie Krieger's new book is based on the arresting and gratifying notion that what your boss wants and needs is someone who can create effective, easy-to-manage documents (including worksheets and presentations), because such documents are the foundation of an effective organization.

Does this mean that Krieger's book gives short shrift to the capabilities of the new Microsoft Office System 2007? Not at all. It just means that the book offers effective ways to think about documents, worksheets, and presentations while showing how best to create and manage them with the Microsoft Office System 2007.

The fact that the word "Advanced" appears in the title is not an accident. The book doesn't tell how to save or print documents or check spelling. Instead, it tells how to plan documents and how to stay in control of them. It discusses special considerations governing documents that will be distributed electronically. It describes how work teams can effectively collaborate on documents. Within this conceptual framework, it offers detailed overviews of features that are new to the applications in Microsoft Office System 2007, plus step-by-step procedures for using those features to improve personal and organizational efficiency and the quality of documents.

The book exhibits respect for the reader throughout. Each advanced section starts by declaring what the reader needs to know ahead of time in order to benefit from that section. Cross-references (to other locations within the book and to other resources found elsewhere) are provided for readers who need more information.

Stephanie understands MS Office software. But, better than that, she understands people. People want results. People need properly created documents. People need help.

Ms. Krieger's other book was a knock-out (Microsoft Office Document Designer). In less than 200 pages, she addressed the task of proper document design. In this book, she takes this to a much higher level.

As a full-time software trainer, I have seen that people only use a small percentage of the features that programs like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint offer. Is this due to a lack of ability? No, it's due to a lack of knowledge.

Stephanie's book will provide the reader with the knowledge required to assemble a "proper" document. Filled with advice, information, and the perfect mix of programs, the pages glow with a light that removes the sometimes dark areas of document creation.

For users of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint who do not read this book, they will continue to struggle, using "band-aids" to hide the cuts and bruises their documents contain. For those who read and apply the information in Stephanie's book, they will not need a trip to the emergency room to save their creation.

As a Microsoft Office programs training instructor in my own business, and a part-time Office Programs Instructor for two local Community College Workforce Dept's., I find the Advanced Microsoft Office Documents 2007 Edition Inside Out to be a very comprehensive book that is very helpful to even experienced users, as well as new users. The written and graphic details are very simple, yet concise, and make the learning process much easier. It is a book that I not only recommend to my students and clients, but, it also has a home on my own desk.

This book will truly help you unlock the potential of the office suite in to creating nice and professional documents a lot faster.
The concepts are not too hard and are usefull most of the time, the goal is to help you use the office suite like it was designed to be use.
The knowledge I got from it truly helped me into creating better looking document for school a lot faster. Sadly during group project I would have to spend time correcting documents because people don't know how to correctly use Word, Excel or Powerpoint.

I consider myself an advanced user and found this book offered handy tips and explanations as to why some features were changed. I use it as a reference to be used when I hit a roadblock or when I get a "What if..." moment. Not for a new Office user.

I am just getting started with this book, but it impressed me so much that I wanted to write a review right away.
I am an IT person who has to work a great deal with large Word docs, a lot of Excel and plenty of Powerpoint presentations, so I am no newbie. But because I copy and paste from other documents, and I have not trained and mastered the detail areas such as Styles, I often have to keep hacking at my documents until they are "close enough".

I looked through a lot of books in Amazon and the Internet to find a good book just for styles and formatting, and I would always find something too simplistic, or a single-step how-to, or a huge doorstop that had the whole world, one click at a time.

This book is different. It starts assuming that I know the basics, which I do, then it gives me a little overarching conceptual story, then goes on to really good nuts and bolts. That it has other topics I care about in Word, and that the book also covers similar topics for Excel and Powerpoint and VBA - icing on the cake.

For now, I am very impressed. I'll try to come back when I have edited a couple of hundred pages in Word and PowerPoint, and when I have wrestled with some new Excel problems. BTW, I bought the Kindle version so I could access this on the road. Not quite as pretty, but it works well.

Very impressive, Ms. Krieger. I look forward to checking out your Office 12, 13, 14, and 15 versions :)
