iWork: The Missing Manual
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: March 2014
Pages: 854

Apple’s iWork is more versatile than ever now that there are versions for Mac, iOS, and even iCloud. The only thing iWork doesn’t include is its own how-to guide. That’s where this friendly, jargon-free Missing Manual comes in. With complete instructions and helpful examples, you’ll quickly learn how to create stunning documents, slideshows, and spreadsheets with iWork’s Pages, Keynote, and Numbers.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Create elegant files in minutes. Save tons of time by using iWork’s collection of prebuilt templates and themes.
  • Craft a variety of documents. Use Pages to design attractive newsletters, catalogs, brochures, flyers, and posters.
  • Build eye-popping presentations. Turn Keynote’s themes and easy-to-use cinematic effects into beautiful custom slideshows.
  • Organize and clearly convey information. Jazz up your Numbers spreadsheets with charts, images, and videos.
  • Always have your work on hand. Store your files in iCloud and have them sync automatically to your Mac and iOS devices.
  • Work anywhere, any time. Use the web-based iWork for iCloud to create projects on any computer—even a PC.
Versions covered:

This edition covers Pages for Mac 5.1, Keynote for Mac 6.1, Numbers for Mac 3.1, version 2.1 of each iOS app, and iWork for iCloud.

    I read s Ineed. There is too much to read it all at once nd remember everything. Have had to modify my original Pages document with this version of Pages which i find annoying, but that is apple's redesign.

        iWork has much potential but I desperately needed this for reference before making the programs default first choice.

        Comments about oreilly iWork: The Missing Manual:

        I really like the iWork series of products, they are fast, small in disk space and not to complex and give you great results in a short time, but as there is virtually no documentation coming with the product except the help pages (which are well done), I needed a separate book since some time and am grateful for this publication.
        I put it on the iPad and use it from there to assist me with the Mac OS X version and vice-versa.
        As is usual with the 'Missing Manual' series I get the most information for a very reasonable price.

          Comments about oreilly iWork: The Missing Manual:

          I really like Oreillys missing manuals. Have it for iWorks and Mavericks.

          Might be an idea for Apple to give this with their products.

          Apple are really self-explanatory in their way of making hard/software but with this manuals you learn so many small features and after some time you just realize how much you missed by just starting to use the products.

          A little unlucky that Apple came out with an update two days after I bought the book, but I understand from Oreilly Media that you get a free update of the Ebook when they are ready with a revised updated volume.

          For me it is the same feeling as when I got my first glasses 35 years ago, I could see before but now I can see perfect!
