"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"Things have changed in Office 2007 and PowerPoint 2007 is one of those that has gotten a makeover. Will you be able to figure it all out on your own? Perhaps. But you'll have to print out quite a few Help screens to get the big picture and the details. PowerPoint 2007: The Missing Manual covers the big picture in the introduction, and takes 15 chapters to give you the details from starting a presentation to collaborating on the final draft."
-- Rick Fischer, Memphis PC Users Group

"...since the Office 2007 applications will not come with a handy user guide, which is the norm these days, and because of the major overhaul of the applications, users may find themselves reaching out to third-party guides to Office 2007. To the rescue comes these superb O'Reilly Missing Manual guides to Office 2007, that may be used even more than usual because of the drastic changes in Office 2007. These latest titles in this marvelous series of "Missing Manual" guides will surely get the attention of potential buyers who have taken the plunge into the new Office 2007 and find themselves a bit bewildered by its completely new look and organization."

"My favorite tidbits were the author’s wise words on creating, saving, setting up, running, and printing a bullets-and-background slideshow to the world of multimedia, animation, and interactivity. In addition, I learned fabulous ways on how to add pictures, sound, video, animated effects, and controls, along with ways to pull text, spreadsheets, and animations created in other programs."
-- Alain B. Renaud, 'TCM Reviews

"Mixing a great combination of humor and good, common sense, they ease you into using these programs and placate the fear we all experience when faced with a new interface or operating system we don't understand. "

"This book is written for those who have some experience in using PowerPoint, but it is not restricted to that class, because the clear and concise instructions can help a rank beginner use the application...The Missing Manual series from Pogue Press/O’Reilly provides the written guides and manuals that should have come with the program. E.A. Vander Veer has given us another great book."
-- Joe Kluepfel, Director, Broward Personal Computer Association, Inc.

"Four new "Missing Manual" books honed for 2007 are picks any program owner should have...These books should not only have been "in the box" with the software--they shouldn't be omitted from any library strong in computer references."
