I highly recommend the book for new Office 2010 users.
Surya-Patricia Lane Hood
It was the only Office 2010 manual I found that actually covers all of the programs in some reasonable depth without being overwhelming.

My secretary and I have used this book many times to learn how to master Office 2010.

This is a GREAT manual--it aggravates me to have to buy a manual for a program that I just spent $200+ for but that is the way of the world today. However, the $20+ I spent on this one was well worth it--great job Nancy & Matthew!

It was the only Office 2010 manual I found that actually covers all of the programs in some reasonable depth without being overwhelming. Also, the conversational tone of the book is a big plus when dealing with the dry topic of computer software.

It has been very helpful in bringing me into the new developments of Outlook and made One Note less daunting for me.

Thanks again for a useful tome...

'Office 2010: The Missing Manual' by Nancy Conner & Matthew MacDonald is an absolute gem of a book. With 900+ pages of material covering Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and so much more, this is the definitive reference item for all heavy Office users that want to ramp up as quickly and efficiently as possible. Broken up over 31 chapters, this book logically separates the different applications and uses of the Office program suite. Focusing heavily on not just the use of the apps but the differences with previous versions, this is another grand slam by the 'Missing Manual' line of books.

The only person that I really couldn't recommend this for is if you are a user of a particular application in the Office suite. For you I would recommend on picking up one of the particular books that delve more into detail than this book does. Only gripe is the lack of color but that isn't enough to not recommend this highly.

Awesome books, incredible job by one of the best book lines out there today.

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I usually get one of these mega-books on each upgrade of software, and this was a very good choice. It does what it says it is going to do, and I am using it repeatedly as I explore Office 2010. The information has been correct every time I look, and leads to aspects I didn't know I wanted to know about until informed in this manual. Sort of like Windows 7, that anticipates problems and solutions without your having to ask.

The only complaints I have are the lack of color, which has turned out to be a very minimal lose, and the lack of depth in some not so unusual areas, like style in Word, which has a very complex set of functions. It is covered, but I left it hungry.

I will most likely get a dedicated book on Word, or just keep following up with searches on the MS Office 2010 Site. The video tutorials there are, by the way, quite good introductions to various parts of every Office program.

Like many software manuals, it covers the basics but doesn't give you anything special. As large as it is, I expected a really strong index (and there are a lot of things listed) but it just didn't get there for me. I'm not a beginner, but Office 2010 was obviously new for me. I'm finding it easier to struggle through the new software and find the solution than struggling through the book to find it.

After my computer crashed at work, I was upgraded from Microsoft Office 3 to 10 with no means of reference other than to keep referring to the Microsoft website, or spending lots of time that I can't afford to loose exploring the ribbon and drop down boxes in an effort to find what I needed. This manual is wonderful! It is well organized,easy to follow, and arrived in better condition that if I bought it off the shelf. A good buy!

Although the authors do not pretend to completely cover the whole Office Suite in this book it more than addresses the most important areas of the Office programs. Well written and very easy to follow it is an essential addition to your library unless you are an expert already!

If you have the Home and Student edition of Office 2010 then you would probably do well with one of those books with cute little cartoons in them. This book is perfect for the small business person using Office Home and Business 2010. If you want or need a book that goes into more detail than the basics then this is the book for you. It's well organized and easy to read. The index makes it simple to look up any area. I went from XP Pro, Office 2003 to Windows 7 Professional, Office 2010 and this book has been great. Unless you need to prepare for Office 2010 Certification this book will cover everything you need in an easy to use, easy to read format.

Super price for what you get! This book is well written and covers the BASICS of using this Microsoft (M/S) product. But there is so much to know about the Office Suite products that this book, even at 900+ pages, cannot possibly cover the detailed information that I would like to have. I dislike having to go online for help information from M/S and become lost in the process. I cannot understand why M/S cannot include the equivalent of an electronic manual with their products. Most laptop PCs have memory & hard-drives in the megabytes and memory-sticks (& cards) in the gigabytes. So if your looking for information on how to use this M/S Office product you'll have to keep looking. Please let me know if you do. For the neophyte user of M/S Office this book definitely gets you off the ground and is well worth the cost.
