Publisher Comments:

Microsoft anticipates that Office 2007 will break records in its first year of release. The new bells and whistles will rush some to upgrade faster than they did with the previous version, which took a while to catch on. The previous version of Office 2003 Student and Teacher Edition was the #1 best-selling software program in the Business category. The low price point and included applications are just what most students and home users need to accomplish most of their work. A large audience base will help propel this new version to the top of the charts as well. Written in the traditional Special Edition Using style, this comprehensive text will be your companion for the entire life of the software. Filled with specific examples for this audience,  you will find thorough coverage of each application in the home and student version of Office.

Synopsis:

Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007

THE ONLY OFFICE BOOK YOU NEED

We crafted this book to grow with you, providing the reference material you need as you move toward Office 2007 proficiency and use of more advanced features. If you buy only one book on Office Home and Student 2007, Special Edition Using Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 is the book you need.

Office Home and Student 2007 is available to ANYONE, regardless of whether you are a student, a teacher, or neither. The only condition Microsoft attaches is the requirement that the software not be used for commercial purposes. For use in the home or classroom, Office Home and Student 2007 is an exceptional deal at a fraction of the cost of the business versions!

   •     No other authoring team in the business is as well recognized and respected as the Office Dream Team; when they speak, even the Office development team at Microsoft listens!

   •     This book is a category killer–one that sets the pace for others to follow!

   •     Tired of Office books that read as though Microsoft employees wrote them? Tired of learning the Microsoft way? Tired of books containing little more than you can pull from the Help system? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you owe it to yourself to get a copy of this book!

   •     If you own a copy of Office Home and Student 2007, you deserve a copy of this book! Here, you’ll find a bevy of previously undocumented tips and tricks that will show you how to harness the power of Office 2007!

   •     Written in clear, plain English, readers will feel as though they are learning from real humans and not Microsoft clones. Sprinkled with a wry sense of humor and an amazing depth of field, this book most certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill computer book

“Another Special Edition Winner! Clear, concise and right on-target. Everything a student or a home user will need to know in order to master Office 2007.”

–Alan & Sandra Ashendorf, Hosts of Let’s Talk Computers Radio Talk Show

About the Author

Ed Bott is a best-selling author and award-winning technology journalist who has been covering the personal computer industry since the days when an 8MHz 80286 was a smokin’ machine. Ed’s feature stories and columns about Microsoft and its products have appeared regularly in print and on the web for more than 15 years, and he has written books on nearly every version of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office–so many, in fact, that he’s lost count of the exact number. He is a three-time winner of the Computer Press Award and earned the Award of Merit from the Society for Technical Communication in 2003. Ed and Woody Leonhard won the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Award, sometimes referred to as “the Pulitzer Prize of the business press,” in back-to-back years for their work on PC Computing’s “Windows SuperGuide.” He lives in an extremely civilized corner of the American Southwest with his wife, Judy, and a growing menagerie of affectionate pets who are sometimes smarter than he is. You can read Ed’s latest writings at Ed Bott’s Windows Expertise (http://www.edbott.com/weblog) and Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report (http://blogs.zdnet.com/bott).

 

Woody Leonhard describes himself as a “Certified Office Victim.” With more than 40 computer books under his belt, he’s seen parts of Office that would curl your hair. Woody’s best known for his fiercely independent website, AskWoody.com, which mercilessly holds Microsoft’s feet to the fire, and specializes in keeping consumers informed about problems with Microsoft patches. He’s also a Contributing Editor with Windows Secrets Newsletter, windowssecrets.com. Woody has won eight Computer Press Awards and, with Ed, two American Business Press Association awards. He moved to Phuket, Thailand, seven years ago, where he now basks in the sun with his wife, Duangkhae, 82-year-old father, George, and all-American beagle, Chronos.
