Straightforward, but not comprehensive...
on January 31, 2010
This book is well-written, easy to read and well-organized; it covers Quicken admirably (but don't expect it to be a finance primer). It details seemingly all of Quicken 2010's features - EXCEPT for Home & Business. I assumed that "The Official Guide" would cover ALL versions, but Caveat emptor....
If you have Quicken Premier, this book is perfect; it you have a less feature-packed version, this book will make you want to upgrade. If you have Home & Business, you're completely covered for the "Home" features, but left hanging for the "Business" features.
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone wanting (needing!) a written guide to the nearly endless features in Quicken 2010, but if you're looking to explore Quicken's small business features, look elsewhere. Unfortunately, of the three Quicken 2010 books available via Amazon, only one, Quicken 2010 for Dummies, addresses business features. Who'da thunk?
