Saved the day!
Ok, here's the situation, I had a job interview that required I take a proficiency test using power point and I'd never used the program before. At first I feaked when they told me, but then I ran out and grabbed a copy of this book with the hopes that it would help me not make a complete fool out of myself. Following along with the book on my notebook, I had no trouble understanding things from basics to more advanced techniques (like posting presentations on the internet). The witty voice and cartoons that the 'Dummies' books are famous for kept me alert and interested in moving forward. I never felt like I was being talked down to and was suprised to find myself enjoying the process! One thing I really appreiated is they give you multiple ways of preforming the same task, so you can choose which is best for you (also on these job proficiency tests they sometimes like to have you do it their way, so you better know more than one way to do things).
One week later I took the test, scored a 90% and was offered the position. Thank you Doug Lowe!

Experienced Users Need Another Book
This book was well written and provided a large amount of information - but did not cover any advanced techniques. If you have even a little experience with Power Point (or graphic design in general), pick another, more advanced book. You'll be much more rewarded.

Doug Lowe does it again...
Doug Lowe admits that he won't win a Pulitzer for this book, but he does deliver a sharp, witty look at the world of madness we call PowerPoint 2000. This book follows the tradition of the "Dummies" series by providing an easy to read text mingled with subtle humor. This book is a must-have for PowerPoint users. Easy enough to understand for beginners, yet advanced enough to keep the pros interested.
