Good for the average Joe
I bought this series of books for the people at the office. They are easy to understand and pretty much anyone learnt something new. This book is not for computer geeks.. Too basic for you...

Wow! This series has really improved since the 2000 version . . . and it is in color! (This series is for the version 2002 programs, which are part of Office XP - which replaces the Office 2000 programs.) I wasn't really planning to buy any of these books this time around until I looked a little more closely at them. They are very nice! So I bought them all!
Basically, the Microsoft Press Step by Step series is geared to teach a beginner how to use each application program in step by step lessons. Even though they start from the beginning, these books are also great for intermediate and advanced users. More advanced users can also go to the Microsoft Press "Inside Out" Series, which is more of a comprehensive reference (the Inside Out Series replaces the "Running" Series).
This book has several nice features: steps are clearly numbered; figures and screen images are in color; there is a comprehensive quick reference, glossary, and index; and a cd is included for additional study. One of the nicest new features is a section that lists all of the Microsoft Office User Specialist (MOUS) objectives, and shows the page numbers in the book where the objectives are taught - this is a great help in preparation for the MOUS certification exams.
This book contains 14 chapters: Creating a Presentation; Working with a Presentation; Printing a Presentation; Outlining Your Ideas; Adding and Modifying Slide Text; Applying and Modifying Design Templates; Viewing and Changing Presentation Colors; Drawing and Modifying Shapes; Inserting Information into PowerPoint; Setting Up and Delivering a Slide Show; Creating a Multimedia Presentation; Creating a Web Presentation; Reviewing and Sharing a Presentation; and Customizing PowerPoint.
I also recommend Microsoft Office XP Introductory Concepts and Techniques; Microsoft Office XP Advanced Concepts and Techniques; and Microsoft Office XP Post Advanced Concepts and Techniques by Gary B. Shelly, et al.
