Ed Bott and Carl Siechert make a terrific team providing clear susinct technical writing. This book is no exception.

Having said that, I am gravely disappointed by the publisher's marketing move. All the Inside-Out books published by Microsoft Press (O'Reilly) used to come with a CD containing the full book in electronic form. Honestly, my collection of Inside-Out books gather dust on the shelves, but the searchable electronic copies are on my notebook harddrive whenever and wherever I need them. With THIS book, O'Reilly makes the electronic version of the book available as an online web site - but ONLY after you create an account with O'Reilly's Safari Library. You also get free 'Tips', which is a thinly disguised way to market you for more books. I don't always have fast Internet access, and sometimes such access might cost me as much as I paid for the book. If you want to put a copy of the book on your harddrive - pony up for a subscription - the cost of the book no longer includes local electronic storage rights.

It looks like O'Reilly is following the path blazed by the airlines by unbundling services and charging additional fees. Come on! Charge a fair price for the book and give me the electronic version! As a business traveller I'm waiting for the hotel industry to jump on board this sad trend and put coin operated toilet paper dispensers in their rooms.

To anyone who has purchased past series titles, definitely get this here. This book is several hundred pages thinner, and in the biggest change, there is no CD included. There has always been a CD with the Windows and Office versions in the past. Still a good book, but not so good a buy anymore.

Good basic overview and reference of Office 2010. On line access to electronic edition is not clear or easily accomplished, so my assessment relates to the printed book only. If you want to install and be guided through the most common features of Office 2010, this will do a good job. I've since purchased the Outlook Bible (written) and an electronic version of Excel to get to the detailed feature use I was looking for. I would have purchased individual Word, Excel, and Outlook publications as these programs were of the greatest interest to me and I was looking for more detail and application of feature examples than were provided.

I am reviewing the Kindle edition of this book and giving 5 stars on balance. The bad news? The index on Kindle is unformatted and pretty useless, although if you find your topic, clicking will navigate close to the relevant text. The text refers to page numbers which Kindle DX does not support. The screen shots mostly are unreadable to my eyes. The good news? You can set up a Kindle library on your computer(don't ask me how, my octogenarian mind has forgotten)and the cover picture of the book appears there. Click this to download the full text to this library in a minute or two (yes all 1000 plus pages) and Eureka! the graphics are just readable; the index is formatted; and headings appear in color. Both location and page number appear on the bottom of the screen albeit in miniscule font. Navigation is easy , click on the main Table of Contents, click on the desired section such as Word, and in the section Contents click on the topic heading; you will be transferred to there. It is easier to navigate than having to flip the pages of a book. It is also easier to read the book on your monitor and you can have your project on a second monitor and just look up the information as required on the first monitor. You can also have two columns to a page. On both Kindle and your monitor you can zoom the font to your liking. As for the text itself? A few errors but fabulous information!

They can't really claim it's office 2010 inside out and not even include all the software. Only reason I bought this overpriced how-to manual was Office 2010 software has Access and Publisher, the two main programs i'll be using in my studies this next year, only to find out the book doesn't include the only two programs I need. Now i'll have to fork over another $30+ for an access book. Thanks for nothing. Just wasted $33.

This kind of book is great for troubleshooting. It doesn't always help me solve the problem immediately in front of me, but at least it gives me an idea of how difficult the problem actually is.

I borrowed a couple of books from the library before buying a reference because I wanted to see which one would be the better choice. I was having a problem with calendars at the time; events were not showing up by default, and the best I was able to do on my own, poking around, resulted in my getting multiple email messages once I finally did get the event on the calendar. I didn't want that happening either.

This book and another book seemed like good candidates online, but the other book turned out to be completely inadequate. This one? I was able to determine in about two minutes that the reason I was having problems was because there are multiple calendars, a fact I knew but hadn't paid much attention to. Getting the event to show was just a matter of getting it on the right calendar. Problem solved.

The second time I tried to use this book, I had a task that was not acting correctly. I couldn't find a solution for what it was doing, so I ended up deleting the task and then creating it again. I suspect that it was just buggy software.

Sometimes you just need to be able to check the book to find out how to do what you need to do. This book does a reasonably good job. And it is certainly better than the other reference I tried.
