My second gripe is about "breaking a document into sections". Easy to do, but lets say you have a sectioned document and you edit a portion of a section (that does not renumber the pages in that section). Here this "manual" is silent on this. But again one can pursue an internet death march and find the information. Unfortunately, the methods did not work as expected. I have a duplex printer I want pages to print recto-verso on the sheet. What I got was two sheet print out: recto page on one, and verso page on another. I'm still looking (or waiting for the Microsoft fix). These are only two problems I've had with MS Word and Missing Manual solutions. If you are a word processor and don't have need for such subtle refinements, then you're in fairly good shape with this "manual". If you're a writer or format docs for proofing not so much.
For me, mostly an update, but found lots of new tips that would not have been noticed otherwise. Coming from Office 2003, the "Ribbon" was new, but this book explained that concept well. Hated it at first, but with the support of this manual, like it now.
The only disappointing thing was the lack of pivot table discussion in the Excel section.
The author "positions" you vis-a-vis what you wish to do. You can determine if you are on the "doorstep" of the specific instructions you need BEFORE "stepping into" the instructions.
The author also comments on related situations which you might/might not want to cover at that moment.
