This is where Jan Berinstein comes in with a well-written, easy to follow, and properly organized book that will show any Word user how to format their document. If the reader only looks at the lesson on styles, he will learn how to get a more properly formatted document that is much easier to modify.
If you want to take control of Word, you need this book. Using the lessons will allow you to leave work at least one hour earlier (if only in your mind).
Click the button and order this now. Then, sit back and learn how to conquer Microsoft Word.
As promised in its title, Dr. Berinstein's book provides the kind of advanced 'how to' information that lawyers and legal secretaries need in order to produce richly featured and professionally formatted documents. Beyond this however, the book demonstrates that the voodoo features of Word and its irritating determination to 'help out' when you just want to be left alone (let's not kid ourselves, the malevolent ghost of clippy lives on in Word 2007) can be mastered.
If you are looking for a template for a will, power of attorney, mortgage or merger agreement, this book is not for you. If you already know what you want to say but fear that your document's mixed up paragraph numbering, corrupted cross-referencing, staggered line spacings and cocktail of fonts are making you look like a dummy, then this book is a must have.
Dr. Berinstein's book focuses on Word 2007 functions germane to the word processing of legal documents. Many Word "how-to" books do not, with the specificity of Dr. Berinstein's book, address key legal document word processing issues. If you are in the legal profession, and intend to use Word's power beyond "cutting and pasting", you should immediately get a copy of Berinstein's well-written book.
Dr. Berinstein's book offers many practical tips and warnings that greatly benefit the legal professional using Word 2007. Dr. Berinstein writes clearly, which is a challenge in writing about a powerful program like Word.
