This book is definitely worth purchasing, whether you are beginning to use Microsoft Office or have been using it for years. The book presents a great deal of information in an easy to understand format. There is a good explanation about the use of new galleries that help quickly find features, formats, wizards, templates, and recently lost files. The mystery of templates has been revealed at long last. I have wanted more documentation on Entourage for years and this book has details. Hidden secrets such as how to make Gantt charts are revealed. PowerPoint and Word features are well documented so that even a novice can use them. All big party givers need to read "Making Magic With Mail Merge." The section covering Excel is particularly good. I am being forced to become an accountant and the ledger sheet explanation is wonderful.

It's rare to find a tutorial so well written and organized. This is my 2nd "for Dummies" series purchase and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get a handle on Microsoft Office 2008 for Macs quickly and easily. I also advise actually creating a project for each section (each office application -word, excel, entourage and powerpoint) - it's a fun and practical way to apply the instructions, test your comprehension and put the application into practice in a tangible and memorable way. Make it as challenging as possible - a newsletter in Word that uses all the graphics and tools including creating tables/graphs and charts requiring excel and/or transferring creations between applications. You'll amaze yourself and be amazed at what you can do and how far Office has come along. But remember, practice makes perfect. And as a person who develops marketing communications and does graphics and design for a living - while it's not Adobe Suite - it's important to be skilled and capable in Microsoft Office as most clients run Office as their primary platform for communications and for business. This publication is good way to develop these skills quickly and stay competitive in today's rough economic environment.

Easy to read and for someone like me who needs to write my tenure/promotion papers with precision, I think it will solve some of the previous problems I had writing in Word.

Office Mac is similar to the Windows version, but there are some differences. A definite "must have" if you're switching over to the Mac. In no time, you'll be as good as ever.
