Very straight forward and readable. Much easier to follow than the more technical texts. Does not assume one already knows a lot about the subject.

I've bought Dummies books for years and have usually been very satisfied with them. This one was written carelessly with a minimum of useable information.

This book does not live up to other Dummy books. I have been unable to find information that I am looking for. The index is inadequate. When I did find info on a topic, the information was not pertinent. I would not recommend buying this book.

Iwork For Dummies is for those of us who just want a layman's approach to finding out how to operate the program or how to find out what you are doing wrong etc. It uses a layout that makes sense, is easy to understand and most importantly an Index that is set up to guide you to what you need to learn in a clear and organized way.

Originally I purchased the Portable Genius self help book and to this day I feel like I am reading a foreign language. Who ever set that one up did not think about how people would even find what they needed to find let alone understand it. In their defense..I did not know at the time that a "Genius" in regard to Apple products is a brain at the real life store who finds out what is wrong with your computers etc. Usually young people, who have grown up with computers, that do not realize those of us who came late to them are confused at best and in complete panic at the worst when things go wrong.

I have bought a number of Dummies books and found them helpful. iWork 09 for Dummies was a disappointment. It did not include answers to specific tasks I am trying to do. I have used Microsoft Office for years and I'm trying to switch to iWork and thought this book would guide me along the way.

This is a very flimsy manual - even for dummies. There are not enough illustrations, and many details are passed over. It is not complete. I've had to buy The Missing Manual for a more complete guide to using iWork '09

I am a big fan of "Dummies" book. When I first purchased a desktop, I found these books to be very helpful. I have never used iWork, as I had started off with Windows, and utilised Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Words. Numbers, Pages and Keynote is very new to me, and after purchasing iWork for Dummies I now know how to operate Numbers, Pages & Keynote. This book is easy to follow and understand..Thank goodness for "Dummies" book.
