Author Biography

Ed Bott is a best-selling author and award-winning technology journalist who has been covering the personal computer industry since the days when an 8MHz 80286 was a smokin’ machine. Ed’s feature stories and columns about Microsoft and its products have appeared regularly in print and on the web for more than 15 years, and he has written books on nearly every version of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office–so many, in fact, that he’s lost count of the exact number. He is a three-time winner of the Computer Press Award and earned the Award of Merit from the Society for Technical Communication in 2003. Ed and Woody Leonhard won the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Award, sometimes referred to as “the Pulitzer Prize of the business press,” in back-to-back years for their work on PC Computing’s “Windows SuperGuide.” He lives in an extremely civilized corner of the American Southwest with his wife, Judy, and a growing menagerie of affectionate pets who are sometimes smarter than he is. You can read Ed’s latest writings at Ed Bott’s Windows Expertise (http://www.edbott.com/weblog) and Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report (http://blogs.zdnet.com/bott).

 

Woody Leonhard describes himself as a “Certified Office Victim.” With more than 40 computer books under his belt, he’s seen parts of Office that would curl your hair. Woody’s best known for his fiercely independent website, AskWoody.com, which mercilessly holds Microsoft’s feet to the fire, and specializes in keeping consumers informed about problems with Microsoft patches. He’s also a Contributing Editor with Windows Secrets Newsletter, windowssecrets.com. Woody has won eight Computer Press Awards and, with Ed, two American Business Press Association awards. He moved to Phuket, Thailand, seven years ago, where he now basks in the sun with his wife, Duangkhae, 82-year-old father, George, and all-American beagle, Chronos.

Today, its general-purpose tools have been softened and refined, and the capabilities of the programs in the Office family have expanded. Despite the name, Office isn't just for the office anymore.Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 is packaged and sold for people who plan to use it at home. Although its individual parts are identical to those found in the Office version used in corporate settings, the day-to-day tasks you're likely to tackle are a little different. That's why, in this book, we've shifted the focus to explain how you can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote to produce school reports, family newsletters, and projects for civic and social organizations. Of course, if you want to use the same technique to sneak in a little work on the weekend, we won't tell.The audience may be different, but the depth of our coverage hasn't changed. We still assume you're smart, curious, and able to figure out the truly basic stuff on your own. We show you how to use and customize the common parts of Office 2007--the Quick Access toolbar, task panes, and other interface elements--and how to get along with the new, potentially confusing Ribbon interface.Like its predecessors, Office 2007 still has odd inconsistencies, as well as bugs, features that don't work as expected, and basic interface elements guaranteed to drive expert users crazy. But as we worked with this latest member of the Office family we grew to like it, a lot. Office 2007 still isn't perfect--not by a long shot--but it is more usable than any Office version ever.Some of what you see inSpecial Edition Using Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007will be familiar to you if you've worked with an earlier edition of this book. We've gone through every chapter, sentence by sentence, test
