I was particularly interested in using Micro-soft word because I all ready use that program because of it's spelling and gramma check's .
This book explains all of the "how to" situations that present in writing a BOOK .
I am 79 year of age and this is my first attempt at writing a book something My School teacher thought I would never ever be able to do, Even my children thought it would be the LAST thing I could do. When at school there were two students that were for ever being hauled out as writing the worst essays , yes one was me. So with a smile on my face this book give me that ability to become an achiever
