5.0 out of 5 stars Huge Reference June 19 2013
By Frank A. Stephenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
And I'm talking both the content and the physical size (and weight). If this reference doesn't answer all of your questions, then what you are trying to do with Word 2013 probably isn't possible anyway. I even found myself inventing questions to look up just to see if the writers thought of that particular need and/or problem. By the time you master every trick, short cut, or feature listed and discussed (usually in depth) you won't need the book anymore; besides, a new version of Word will be out by then.

This book is very well written, very complete, and priced just right.
You can either read through it or use it as a reference.
I can't give the author enough praise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good advanced coverage of Word Dec 28 2013
By Charles Reiter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been using Word for years, but have never found a book that has so much useful information, some of which I had no clue about. Good for beginner, intermediate and advanced users.

This is well laid out and easy to follow. I got it for a Sr. citizen who was having trouble formatting her Bible study in Word. She is having fun now instead of feeling frustrated.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs to include sample files, whether on a CD or available by download July 2 2014
By Chris Jung - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Unfortunately, I'm going to give this book only 2*, and I'll state my reasons. All the computer books I buy come with a CD, or more recently, downloads available from the publishers website that give you sample files to go along with the book. Without these, it's very difficult to understand the material, if you don't have an actual sample of the function being discussed.

In my case, I have 25+ years of IT experience, and many years of experience with Word 2010. However, I certainly don't consider myself an expert. However, I have almost 800 personal Word 2010 documents, and I'd love to see how they look/act in Word 2013. The main reason I bought this book was to try to learn how to convert some (or all) of them into Word 2013 format, and take advantage of Microsoft's cloud storage.

While Ms. Wempen's book looks like it's an exhaustive reference on the details of Word 2013, which I agree are important, I believe it's equally important to be able to teach those details to someone who doesn't know them. As such, this is strictly a reference book for someone to be able to take a Word 2013 document and be able to apply a specific function to it.

In my opinion, as a book that will teach users to take their current Word 2010 documents and enhance them in Word 2013, and upload them to Cloud Storage, it's woefully inadequate. I looked at the table of contents, and there isn't a single chapter that mentions Word 2010. Does that mean the author thinks we all started out with Word 2013? I don't think so.

If a 2nd version comes out that includes extensive sample files, then I'd be glad to buy it. Not until then. I'm returning this copy to Amazon for a refund.
