About the Author

Wallace Wang is the bestselling author of several dozen computer books including Office For Dummies and Beginning Programming For Dummies. Besides writing computer books, Wally also enjoys performing stand-up comedy just to do something creative that involves human beings instead of machines.

More About the Author

I love computers but I hate complexity. That's why I specialize in making complicated topics easier to understand. My computer books tackle a variety that include Microsoft Office and computer programming. Besides my many computer books, I've also written books on non-computer topics such as stock investing and screenwriting. When not writing books, I also perform stand-up comedy so I can bring a humorous touch to my explanation of complicated topics so they're easier to learn.

In the stand-up comedy world, I've been performing stand-up comedy for over 20 years, having appeared on A&E's "Evening at the Improv" and SiTV's "Latino Laugh Festival" along with appearing at the Riviera Comedy Club in Las Vegas. Currently I'm focusing my comedic writing skills towards occasional comedy performances but mostly towards screenwriting. You can read my screenwriting blog at The 15 Minute Movie Method (www.15minutemoviemethod.com). I've collected the best ideas from my screenwriting blog and condensed them into an e-book also called "The 15-Minute Movie Method," which is available as an e-book.

In 1992, I got my first cat and after reading a basic cat care book, I found that none of the advice offered had any basis in reality for dealing with the quirks and whims of a real cat. Based on that experience, I wrote a parody of a cat care book called "How to Live with a Cat (When You Really Don't Want To)." This book is now available as an e-book and I also run a blog called Cat Daily News (www.catdailynews.com) where I collect interesting cat news from around the Internet.

In the teaching world, I've taught at community colleges around San Diego as well as teaching at the University of Zimbabwe in Africa. Currently I teach an online Microsoft Word and OS X/iOS programming course through a company called Ed2Go.

In the writing world, I've written for several magazines including Computer Power User (CPU), Boardwatch Magazine, and Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities. I also write a weekly Macintosh column in an online computer magazine called ComputorEdge (www.computoredge.com). In addition, I've ghost written several books for real estate experts, stock day trading specialists, and network marketing millionaires. In 2008, I helped San Diego State University's film department win their first student Emmy when they filmed my sitcom pilot, "Three of a Kind," which is about three generations of couples forced to live in the same house without driving each other crazy from their different points of view on everything.

In the game designing world, I've created and published a game in 1983 called "Orbit War," which was published by Steve Jackson Games (the game is now out of print). The game simulated low orbital combat between satellites.

I'm interested in always learning something new and combining my various skills and experience to help others understand changing technology. To keep up with my random thoughts concerning advice I wish someone had given me, you can read my personal blog at www.wallacewang.com.

My latest interest involves creating interactive e-books, so I also run another web site called The Electronic Author (www.electronicauthor.com) where I give tips for how others can publish e-books inexpensively and maximize their profits. Since printed books cost so much to make, ship, and store, and bookstores are fading from relevance faster than the latest reality TV star, you can see that the future of printed books is about as promising as Kim Kardashian suddenly deciding to go to college and earn a Ph.D. in nuclear physics.

With all my books I strive to simplify complex topics in a fun way that everyone can enjoy. Life is too short to remain mentally stagnant, so keep learning and striving for your goals, and I'll be happy to help through my books so you can reach your dreams.

The dummies books are always very informative and take time to digest. The DVD was disappointing and does not offer much indepth instruction. It could be left out and lower the price of the package.

I found the book extremely helpful. Easy to understand although it does skip some of the basics which surprised me since it's a book for self confessed "dummies."

The DVD was useless. Too quick too follow. After all, this is a DVD for people that need to learn the basics and this video did not help at all.

I'd buy the book again. Skip the package that includes the DVD and save yourself some money.

Format: Paperback
Office 2010 does not have as many changes compared to the previous version as Office 2007 did. That being said; most of the changes are "under the hood" improvements to make everything much more efficient. This book does a very good job of summarizing these changes, where to find every imaginable tool and how to customize the ribbon.

If you're a very seasoned Office user (one who honestly understands every nuisance in the program), then read on, there surely are other books for you. If on the other hand you are one of those people who uses these programs regularly for basic everyday tasks and are frustrated "why Microsoft keeps changing things," this is the book for you. You'll discover new things on every program that will improve efficiency working with these programs.

About the only negative thing is that OneNote is not discussed.

I purchased a different version of the same subject. It was supposed to be a simple to use book. I bought this one because it is clearer and easier to follow the instructions. I use it every day

After using an old version of Office it was time to update when I got a new computer. Thinking I could just carry on with Office 2010 and not much would change, I was wrong. Office 2010 for dummies was extremely helpful especially with learning more about excel. The CD was helpful also for fast tips. It is still helpful to have some basic knowledge of the workings of Office.

I am not a Computer Dummy, but this simplifies learning in new areas that I have not had a chance to explore! It is very easy to follow along. I feel that I am more proficient at it now.
