I'll fess up right away: For a long time, I've been prejudiced against the "dummy series" because of its reader-denigrating subtitle. This book, by Geetesh Bajaj and James Gordon, has cured me. Comparing it, section by section, with Office 2011 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual, (see my very favorable review on amazon), I find both written with equally admirable clarity--the principal criterion for judging technical writing. Both books merit an A grade.

The playful approach of the dummy series -- the humorous tone, the occasional cartoons, the expressive visual cues in the icons, the creative typography, and the generous use of white space--makes this book more reader-friendly than the competition. (On humor in technical writing, have you heard this? Two guys at a bar counter. The first says, "My brother's writing has been read by almost everyone on the planet." The other says, "Oh, yeah? What has he written?" The first replies, "Just three words: 'Batteries not included'." I heard this in an editing course I took at Stanford many years ago. Hey, if you haven't heard it before, it's new.)

Of course, reader-friendly depends on who the reader is. Some readers might find the playful features frivolous. However, the pervasive popularity of the dummy series proves that many millions of readers the world over enjoy its approach in book after book. No question, the dummy series' authors are highly skilled.

Very helpful! I didn't get an instruction book when I bought MS Office 2011 for Mac and was relying on finding answers to the questions that popped up by doing internet searches. That got old really quickly, especially since I had to sift through lots of unanswered questions and complicated explanations. So much wasted time. So far I haven't come across a question that I couldn't get answered by looking in this book.

I'm dumb about Word and trying to deal with a long document. Word's own "Help" is of course completely worthless-- literally, in more than ten years of using Word for basic chores, I have never found an answer I needed there. How do they do that?

So I went and bought Word 2011 for Dummies, by another author, and found it confusing and also, unfortunately, useless to me. The author seemed to assume I knew nothing in some basic areas and yet assumed too much in others. I would look up a basic question in the index and find nothing there. The diagrams and pictures were also not particularly helpful.

With online searches, I kept coming across useful information from the authors of this book and finally, feeling silly because I already had the other book, I bought this one.

What a relief! This book explains things much more clearly and has lots of diagrams in the right place in the text, showing exactly what they are talking about so you don't have the usual problem when reading instructions of "Yes but where IS that button?" (Of course it's not in Help!) They don't make you feel stupid for not knowing the names of Word features nor how they work. They also explain the differences from older versions of Word. I have already learned a lot of good tips.

There is still plenty that isn't in the book, and personally I would rather have had much, much more basic word processing information and troubleshooting, and less stuff about inserting pictures, links etc. which is fairly intuitive. I don't want to use Outlook and there was a lot of info on that. Neither am I ready to use Macros and the book did not really explain them. If you are making Powerpoint slides or doing charts, it looks as if there is a lot of info for you.

I'm usually put off by books with similar "for Dummies" titles, but there is so much in Office that I don't use, I considered for a moment that I may indeed be a Dummie, so I took a chance. This is a very detailed text that is well indexed and easy to follow. You don't have to read it cover to cover sequentially to greatly benefit from it. The author is is incredibly knowledgable and reading it was a pleasure. It's not just about Office 2011, but Office in general. I was familiar with lot of the material covered, but it was good that the author mentioned the stuff in order to relate to the new material in 2011 version. I'd recommend this especially to a novice, but it is quite a value to a seasoned Office user that's not afraid to read something they already know.

The Office 2011 for Mac for Dummies book is okay - there are several questions I had that I'm finding difficult to locate answers, if there are any answers at all. It's pretty basic stuff, and if one is a person who is at all familiar with Office for Windows, most of the book is fairly logical. I wish I could have held the book in my hands and poured over it before ordering, but that just isn't going to happen. The book will stay on my shelf as a resource book, certainly not a textbook type.
