Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—Get expert techniques and best practices for creating professional-looking documents, slide presentations, and workbooks, and apply these skills as you work with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel® in Office 2010 or Office for Mac 2011. Documents, Presentations, and Workbooks (Microsoft Press, $54.99 USD) provides constructive advice and advanced, timesaving tips to help you produce compelling content that delivers—in print or on screen.

"There are so many people using Microsoft Office to create content today who want to understand what they can do with it beyond point-and-click type of instruction," says Microsoft Office MVP and author Stephanie Krieger. "What I see too often is people who expect it to be difficult and complicated to create really beautiful content—and who work so much harder than they have to do to accomplish what they need with Office. Documents, Presentations, and Workbooks shows experienced users of Office how they can get better results with less work—and how those who want to push the envelope can take Office even farther and create more customized content."

Work smarter—and create content with impact. Documents, Presentations, and Workbooks will teach you how to:

  • Create your own custom Office themes and templates
  • Use tables and styles to help organize and present content in complex Word documents
  • Leave a lasting impression with professional-quality graphics and multimedia
  • Work with PowerPoint masters and layouts more effectively
  • Design Excel PivotTables for better data analysis and reporting
  • Automate and customize documents with Microsoft Visual Basic® for Applications (VBA) and Open XML Formats
  • Boost document collaboration and sharing with Office Web Apps
