Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: July 2002
Pages: 728

Mac OS X, Apple's super-advanced, Unix-based operating system, offers every desirable system-software feature known to humans. But without a compatible software library, the Mac of the future was doomed.Microsoft Office X for Macintosh is exactly the software suite most Mac fans were waiting for. Its four programs--Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage--have been completely overhauled to take advantage of the stunning looks and rock-like stability of Mac OS X. But this magnificent package comes without a single page of printed instructions.Fortunately, Pogue Press/O'Reilly is once again there to rescue the befuddled and overwhelmed--with Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual. It tackles each of the primary Office applications with depth, humor, and clarity, and provides relief for the hapless Mac user who'd rather read professionally written printed instructions than hunt through a maze of dryly written help screens.Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual is coauthored by a dream team of Macintosh experts: Tonya Engst, coeditor of the popular TidBITS Macintosh newsletter; David Reynolds, former executive editor of MacAddict magazine (now working at Apple); and Nan Barber, Macworld contributor and coauthor of Office 2001 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual, on which this book is based. Once again, the authors are joined by series founder David Pogue, who has closely edited the book to ensure excellence of depth, accuracy, and prose.

Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual Review

By Jim Hill

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Office X for Macintosh: The Missing Manual:

As usual for O'Reilly/Pogue Press, this is a top-notch book. I've made a point of avoiding Microsoft products so when I finally had to begin using Office I found myself with no prior experience beyond similar products (mostly Appleworks, itself the subject of a pretty darn good Missing Manual). The book's considerable heft is due to an amazing wealth of tips, tricks, and how-tos. If you're new to Office v.X, you'd be well-advised to toss a copy of this book on the shelf.
