Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Among its many amazing applications, Google now has web-based alternatives to many of the applications in Microsoft Office. This comprehensive and easy-to-follow new book enables you to explore Google's new office applications in detail. Once you do, you'll be in good company — more than 100,000 small businesses and some corporations are already looking to take advantage of these free Google offerings.

Google Apps: The Missing Manual teaches you how to use three relatively new applications from Google: "Docs and Spreadsheets", which provide many of the same core tools that you find in Word and Excel; and Google Calendar and Gmail, the applications that offer an alternative to Outlook. This book demonstrates how these applications together can ease your ability to collaborate with others, and allow you access to your documents, mail and appointments from any computer at any location.

Of course, as remarkable as these applications are, Google's office suite is definitely a work-in-progress. Navigating what you can and can't do and — more importantly — understanding how to do it isn't always easy. And good luck finding enough help online. Google Apps: The Missing Manual is the one book you need to get the most out of this increasingly useful part of the Google empire. This book:

  • Explains how to create, save and share each of Google's web-based office applications
  • Offers separate sections for Docs and Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, and Gmail
  • Demonstrates how to use these applications in conjunction with one another
  • Gives you crystal-clear and jargon-free explanations that will satisfy users of all technical levels
Many of you already use Gmail, but do you know its full potential? Do you know how you can increase its power by using Gmail with Doc and Spreadsheets and Google Calendar? You'll find out with Google Apps: The Missing Manual. You'll also come to understand why large corporations such as General Electric and Proctor & Gamble are taking a long, hard look at these applications.

Book News Annotation:

This manual is intended for anyone who is new to Google applications or who wishes to gain more knowledge about the available programs both for private individuals and businesses. Sections cover Google's productivity suite, communication and scheduling, creating web pages, and Google applications for organizations; an appendix includes pages of keyboard shortcuts. Written in an accessible style with occasional screen shots to illustrate points, this title would be useful for even beginners to Google applications.
