    Comments about O'Reilly Media Office 2010: The Missing Manual:

    My workplace just moved from Office 2003 to 2010 and haven't bothered to provide any training. The Missing Manual has been a life-saver for me and my team, especially with the new (to us) ribbons at the top of each Office window.

    Last month this book was rarely off someone's desk. This month it gets taken off the shelf 2-3 times a week, so some of the teaching has sunken in.

    There are times when I've found that the chapters didn't go far enough. Outlook was the main case in point, but that's what the "Inside Out" books are for.

        Comments about O'Reilly Media Office 2010: The Missing Manual:

        Although I haven't read the complete manual, I am disappointed in 2 things:
        1) I dislike the over emphasis on keyboard commands, because with my proficiency in the applications, I don't need to learn and try to remember hundreds of commands.
        2) I use complex worksheets and there wasn't any mention of cell linking between worksheets/workbooks, nor was there any mention of 3 axis charting.
