1.0 out of 5 stars

The book adds little to what is easier and more thoroughly gotten from help screens.
It does not note several serious flaws such as the imposition of the Master Document template on subdocuments as they are inserted. The result can be disasterous reconstruction of the format of the imported document.
If you have subdocuments formatted under separate templates or under Word 97 there is no way to recover the desired formats. Microsoft tells me that Word 2002 will correct this problem. In the meantime stick with Word 97.
If you wish to use a Master Document, create the Master Document first and then create the subdocuments using the Master Document template and be leary of changes to the template as subdocuments are created. If you do this, I suppose all of the marvelous features will work as advertised. I haven't tried it yet.
