A step above "For Dummies", but not much...
I found this book to a lot of hype and not much delivery. In Chapter 6, the authors spend two whole pages on how to add graphics to Microsoft Word. This is one of the main reasons one would choose Visio. They list the options one may select, but never actually tell you how to accomplish the act!! The index in the back is also difficult to use, hard to find the topics one is looking for - or this may actually be a reflection of the book being incomplete. I have learned more about Visio on my own than by reading, using, or attempting to look up a reference in Hedtke & Knottingham's "Official" guide.

Fine for beginners
This book is OK for beginners who have little to no experience with other graphics programes (i.e. Publisher, Illustrator), but it simply glosses the more advanced features. For example, the books states, almost like an ad, that you can link to Access and Project, but gives useless explanations as to how these tasks are done and no examples or explanation on why you would do it. These advanced features are the very reason you would use Visio in the first place.
