      Comments about oreilly QuickBooks 2014: The Missing Manual:

      My biggest complaint with all Quicken products is that they are completely devoid of any user-friendliness. This manual continues along that line. You MUST have at least intermediate Quicken skills to use both the software and the manual.

        Don't know why this doesn't come with the actual Quick Books package. Wonderful tool. Couldn't have set up software without it.

        It has been of some help but I have had to phone the quickbooks help line also. I do use it to go to certain things but probably am better off phoning customer service to get interactive advice and help.

              I have used QuickBooks since its inception. This manual has added immeasurably to my knowledge even though I was very familiar with QuickBooks--which I had learned mostly by trial and error.

              New user or old, you will find this book to be a treasure.

                  Got the book as a first time user of QuickBooks to help figure out how to set it up and use it for my church. I was able to find some things but not everything I needed. I'm glad I bought it though.

                          I don't know how we lived without this. All of the answers to our questions are now at our fingertips rather than having to spend lots of time on-line trying to figure out the correct search terms to enter and then scrolling endlessly through whatever pops up and ultimately not finding the answer to our questions. This is a HUGE timesaver!!!
