As a longtime Windows user, but a newbie to Apple products, I have been comparing guides in the University of California, Berkeley, libraries. After studying David Pogue's Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual ; Mac OS X Snow Leopard: The Missing Manual; iPhone: The Missing Manual: the fourth edition and comparing them with several other guides, I've become a fan of the "missing manual" series.

Office 2011 includes a number of significant changes - mostly for the better - from Office 2008 for the Mac and if you're going to be serious about a reasonable level of expertise, a book beyond one of the fine basic treatments is required. This book is logically organized and well written. Enough said. If you only need the basics this is still great but not necessary. If you're going to go for a more thorough understanding of features, this is well worth your consideration.
