    This is only my third Amazon review. I normally don't take the time to write reviews, although I do appreciate the people who do and often base my buying decisions on them.

    I purchased the physical (not Kindle) version of the book and purchased based on the glowing reviews by "Vine" members and the fact that a purchase would give me access to 3 hours of video content.

    I followed the instructions in the book to register at the Que website. I created an account and confirmed my email.

    I then went to the link given to access the videos. No videos. It takes me to a page to create a Que subscription for $19.99/month for 10 books or $49.99/month for all their books.

    I went back to check the account information to see if there was something I missed and found a "coupon code."

    Okay, I thought, this must give me access to the videos. I entered the coupon on the subscription page and, sure enough, "Using OneNote 2010 video content" showed up.

    Solved, I thought, so I then clicked to access the content.

    Nope. Got an "Error Message" - I must chose either the $19.99 or the $49.99 account to continue.

    I then went back to the reviews and noticed a lot of others who have had the same problem. Only "Vine" reviewers have gotten to see the "hidden" videos.

    Unfortunately, it is past the 30 day limit for me to return this book.

    I think Que is being deceptive in their advertising by saying the video content. It isn't. You have to subscribe to their service.

    A well written book covering topics for both beginners and those with more advanced skills. I have been using OneNote since it was first launched and there are many things I picked up in this book.

    Another reviewer mentioned the videos. While I have the paperback book, I don't think the Kindle edition would be different. In the introduction on page 3 is the link to register the book and gain access to the videos.

    The videos are the author doing screen casts - these are not high quality videos like Lynda.com. This is not a knock, this is just a different style but they work well. Its a nice compliment to the book and I am glad they are available as a companion to the written text.

    The one chapter missing from the book are tips and tricks for organization. I would like to hear about some suggestions for how to best organize my data.

    If you are on Windows and use Outlook, Word and such, then this book is a good investment.

    Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I am not usually big on getting books about office products. I tend to figure out what I need on my own by using help and visiting web sites. OneNote is a little different. Unlike Word or Excel, there is very little in the area of example of using the application. If you have ever used a word processor or spreadsheet, you pretty much understand how to use Word and Excel. OneNote is a different breed. It turns out, reading a book on its use brings into focus not only ways to use the program, but why you would use.

    I don't want this to be a review of the software, but of the book. So I'll leave it to the user of the application to determine its value. As for the book, I found it to be excellent. I've been using OneNote for a couple of months and did not think I would get much out of the book. I was wrong. I learned many small things that make the software more useful. Since the purpose of the software is to be used for all of your note taking, small tips which enhance productivity make a big difference. And that is what I enjoyed most about the book.

    The writing was excellent and made it easy for a beginner to understand. As someone experienced with computers I found I could skip through examples but still pick up the general idea and also learn new tips. I especially liked the formatting of the book which highlighted tips with a different background. One item I think will help new users is that by buying the book you get access to online videos showing the items discussed in the book. It can be difficult to describe clicking and dragging and so one to a new user. But when a person can watch someone else perform the steps, it all becomes easy to follow.

    I have both OneNote 2007 and 2010.

    Let's focus on the results.
    In the three weeks since I received the book, I came from being a newbie to a strong user of OneNote 2010.
    Not trivial, if you consider that:
    a) I do not have much free time to put into the effort and
    b) I had been struggling for over a year to find practical uses for OneNote.
    I had the feeling that OneNote held a valuable prize inside, but I didn't have the key to open it.

    Now let's go to the activities.
    The book starts at the very beginning, and slowly builds block by block from there.
    Again ... sounds trivial, but it isn't.
    During the first chapters I felt it was a bit too slow, but I had made my mind to read the full text in its proper order, do all the exercises and review all the videos.
    The book holds no surprises, no emotions.
    The voice in the videos is clear and precise, if a little boring too.

    But then, I found that I had been learning new things.
    By the time I closed Chapter Three, I could picture several practical uses for the tool, and by the end of Chapter Five I was already using OneNote to keep my notes on real life projects, and I was collecting phone numbers, addresses and important links that I had collected in paper cards, notebooks and computer files.

    Please note that I received a free copy of the book in exchange for my review.
    No strings attached.
