An excellent, practical guide
I think this book is terrific. Anyone writing a book about computer software should be required to study this book first. It gets to the heart of what you need to know and doesn't hesitate to tell you what you might not want to use (like the grammar checker and the indexing feature). Best of all are the really useful sidebars. For example, as the author admits, it is really easy to get a word count--the hard part is what to do if the document is too long, and her sidebar on the subject is really helpful. Examples of other excellent sidebars are "Seven Rules for Creating Great Lists" that accompanies the section on Numbered and Bulleted Lists and "Dealing With Criticism" (both how to accept it and how to offer it) that goes with the section on Tracking Changes. If you're looking for a really useful guide to Word's most important features, this is the book to get.

Covers basics of Word and of writing well
This book covers all the basics of using Word--all the same information you'd get from a Dummies book or one of Microsoft Press's Step-by-Step books. In addition to that information, Effective Executive's Guide to Word also provides lots of advice and information about how to write better, including info on writing business memos, emails, etc. Most business users would never need more information than this book provides. And everybody who wants to write better reports, memos, etc, will benefit from the author's tips.
