Book has a very basic presentation,and is easy to follow. It was advertized as having 160 pages, but only has 146-including index. It will get you started, but does not even mention statistical procedures such as regression analysis and standard deviation, which are the main strengths and useages of the Quattro Pro Program, as far as I am concerned. Most of what is in the book could easily be gleaned from the "Help" menu. Much of the instruction is common to "Windows 95" methods, so therefore is redundant. This is the first book I will be returning to Amazon for a refund.
