Early reviewers have offered wide-ranging praise for the new edition:
“Microsoft Word is perhaps the most ubiquitous computer program in the world. This short guide presents a wealth of information for those interested in using the newest version of the program. Just the list of keyboard shortcuts makes this a worthwhile read.”
- Clinton Greaves, NetGalley
“I work in education as a tutor so am always on the lookout for any guides to recommend to my learners. This is a great little book – easy to read, illustrations, very accessible – I learnt a lot myself so would not hesitate to recommend. I also liked the way terms are explained, different version explained (the difference between Office 365 and the online version) great for anyone who needs a little more understanding but doesn’t know where to go to get information.”
- Maria Martignetti, Librarian, NetGalley
“This was an easy read and I quite enjoyed that the author decided to compare the various available versions of Word 2019. It’s great refresher in Word and excellent learning tool for new users to Word. I personally enjoyed the keyboard shortcuts index at the back of the book.”
- Ute Gryba, NetGalley
