I love powerpoint because I can make web pages easily with it--just take a screen shot or photo or whatever I want to use and stick it on a slide and cut and move and write on it and add other photos. Then I save it and use it in emails as a jpeg or put it on my website---so many uses. My website provider does not allow for writing on photos, so I really needed this function.
I highly recommend the book. I found everything I needed. It has all sorts of things that are way too advanced for me---I guess you can click on the book and look at the table of contents. I don't need those yet, but I think the book will be able to walk me through them.
I try to keep it on my desk at work, but it keeps ending up on other people's desks.... it has a tendency to wander around the office. I have suggested that we buy several additional copies for shared use. Unless you're using PowerPoint very regularly, it's hard to become a highly proficient user, but with this "Teach Yourself" resource, you'll be able to quickly plug the gaps in your knowledge.
