First of all, this book is made to order so there is no express shipment. Also, you may have noticed that there is no way to preview the book so you have no idea what you are getting besides all these nice people writing reviews for the first time just for her book. I took a chance and since I am in same state of the publisher, I was pretty disappointed with how long it took and that they do not have at least one copy ready to send. That's my gripe and maybe not bad news for you.
Well, then, you have the book. For software training, this book covers topics you could go take a class on line or in person (if you want real practice). I think the comparison to Word Perfect to MS Word was good. The rest did not exactly help you with specific legal documents so the subtitle should be "A small comparison section of two programs,my basic Word knowledge with scant screen shots and information you already know but will not see in a legal professionals context anywhere in this book." There were no sample documents! No example exercises! And while she claims to be basing her books on tasks, it was written like a novel instead of how to actions to correct or create specific legal documents.
Now, the service was pretty weak. I emailed to complain when I discovered that the book had not even been shipped yet and later on, all they could say is that they print by order. The book came late and worse was completely useless!
So now I have been ripped off in time, service and the product is not as advertised therefore completely a waste. You be the judge, no pun intended, but I would not buy from this vendor or get this book if you intend to improve your skills with legal documents using Microsoft Word. Besides you can't return it. Save your $40 for a live course and I'll write here again with a recommendation of a better book.
I had to republish the book because of a change in Amazon's distribution rules. I've made only a few substantive changes, all of them fairly minor. Indeed, the most notable difference is cosmetic: I jazzed up the cover a bit.
Unfortunately, Amazon has indicated that it can't port the existing reviews to the new page.
In any case, many thanks to all of you who have purchased -- or intend to purchase -- copies of the book. Thanks, as well, to the people -- nearly all of them total strangers -- who wrote such glowing reviews. Your support means a great deal to me.
