Underneath the humor there's a great deal of useful information about the use of Microsoft Office.

My Gosh! What an hilarious book! I could barely stay atop my ergodynamic seat when reading Stahl's Crabby Office Lady. It is too funny and quite insightful as well. Not only are we learning some great shortcuts and know-hows to put under our belt, which are easy to understand and implement, but the humor is infectious. I have so enjoyed telling both my colleagues and friends about it. In fact, some of my friends that are not in the computer world, including my parents, have taken to reading her weekly column. They now email me with her suggestions and, of course, her intelligent humor. I can't recommend it highly enough.

One of the things that Microsoft has done exceedingly well is promote the use of their software at all levels of business. Perhaps the most important realization that started the Crabby Office Lady was the understanding that the public's view of Microsoft was not of a humor oriented friendly company.

In the winter of 2001 when the overall Microsoft web pressence was being changed, Crabby was born. She's now five years old and has a weekly readership of something over 250,000. Now her collected wisdom has been published in this book. It's a hilarious book.

Underneath the humor there's a great deal of useful information about the use of Microsoft Office. Here is not the deatiled instructions, you can get that out of the manual, but here are hints and tips that make the office (your office, not the software) package work and get along better. It's a useful book.

The CRABBY OFFICE LADY should be near every computer. I like the humor and verbiage used to solve problems in such non scientific language.

After seeing Ms. Crabby's video clips and seeing her speak at a presentation, I had to get the book. It's a priceless office tool! Especially useful to me on a weekly basis is the section on the Top 10 email crabs! Although written with humor, the points are well-taken and we can all learn a thing or two about appropriate email etiquette.

This book is a must-have for anyone using the Microsoft Office Suite--or for anyone who just wants a good laugh. Buy one for yourself, and buy one for your friends. Excellent, helpful tips written in such a hilarious manner, I could not put it down. Absolutely not another dry, boring "how-to" computer book!

Ms. Stahl's style is easy, natural and extremely informative. Her voice as "Crabby" is hilarious. Honestly, this is the first about the work place I've ever laughed my way through AND found indispensable. An absolute MUST for any office bookshelf!

Normally, how- to and etiquette books are assigned to my "reference library" only to be read in case I have to look up what I don't know. I read this book from start to finish and was mentally goosed by its style and wittiness. I smirked, guffawed and in general felt like the cool cat at the water cooler, one of those in the know. If I ever need to look something up, Crabby is easy to use and covers all the bases of office life, both the obvious and obscure.

Numerous hints and techniques for dealing with everyday life situations engage the reader while providing laugh-out-loud insights to not only enhance your use of Microsoft Office, but to deal with and understand your office mates, as well.
