Beginner to midLevel users
I read this book in a few hours and returned it afterwards. It covers many of the topics that are standard throughout the Office Suite of products. It may be a great book for somebody who is unfamiluar with new applications but I figured out most of this stuff before I even bought a book. Otherwise I have no complaints. I just knew this stuff already. This author has an advanced book that may be helpful for many advanced users who need to interact with the shapes.

A waste of time and money
This book is so useless that I felt compel to write a review to warn others to stay away from this book. A good tutorial should inspire the user on what he/she can do with the product. This book leads you to believe that the only thing you can do with Microsoft Visio is to endlessly change settings. The book is a disservice to both the reader and to Microsoft Visio.

A little too basic for most users
I've just started reading this, so my comments are preliminary. The good parts about this book is that there is a lot of visual aids and a lot of logical steps for doing things. Plus, the author does a very good job of setting up hands-on activities for for the user to do. However, my complaint is that too much time spent explaining very basic functions that most Windows or Office users would already know. How to save? how to change the font? While not a bad book, potential buyers might consider looking at the advanced book first or buying both books in combination. Otherwise, this book is for people who really are starting fresh and might not well experienced in Office either. Perhaps one of the problems is that visio is extremely user-friendly (unlike other bloatware products! ), and a writer is left with explaining the obvious. That is why it might be good to find a book that explains the more advanced functions.
