Sebastopol, CA—Microsoft Office is the most widely used software suite in the world. The half-dozen programs in Office 2010 are packed with amazing features, but most people just know the basics. Office 2010: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly Media, $39.99 USD) not only gets you started with Office, it reveals all kinds of useful things you didn't know the software could do—with plenty of power-user tips and tricks when you're ready for more.

  • Create professional-looking documents. Learn everything you need to know to craft beautiful Word documents.
  • Stay organized. Keep track of your email, calendar, and contacts with Outlook.
  • Crunch numbers with ease. Assemble data, make calculations, and summarize the results with Excel.
  • Make eye-catching presentations. Build PowerPoint slideshows with video and audio clips, animations, and more.
  • Build Access databases quickly. Make your data easy to find, sort, and manage.
  • Manage your files more efficiently. Use the new Backstage view to quickly work with your Office files.
  • Get to know the whole suite. Learn to use other handy Office tools: Publisher, OneNote, and Office Web Apps.

"If you're upgrading from Office 2007, you'll be able to zero in on the new features you'll love. If you're a holdout from an earlier version of Office, you'll get up to speed fast—and painlessly," said Nancy Conner, co-author of Office 2010: The Missing Manual, along with Matthew MacDonald.
