"All levels of users should examine Word Hacks. It reminds me of the account of Howard Carter, peering through a small hold into Tut'ankhamun's tomb, reporting that the could see 'wonderful things.'"
-- Major Keary, Book News

"This is the best book I've seen about Microsoft Word since Woody Leonhard's Word 97 Annoyances. If you have to use Word for more than the occasional letter or memo, this one is a must purchase."
--Keith Soltys, Soltys.ca, March 2005

"At $24.95, this collection of tips and trick is well worth the investment. Browsing through the Hacks is a great way to discover the hidden potential contained in Word. The directions for creating macros are easy to understand and the explanations of terms and technologies are excellent. If you use the Windows version of Microsoft’s Word 2000, Word 2002, or Word 2003, you’ll want this resource on your bookshelf. Although not the target audience, even users of Word 97 will find a lot of useful information between the covers."
--Iris Yoffa, Tucson Computer Society, August 2005

"Word enthusiasts of all abilities will find this book of value. The chance to change the look, feel and functionality of a program we spend so much time using, not only improves productivity, but also gives the chance to make the program work the way you want to."
--Mark Brett, Mark.Brett.com, February 2005

"If you are familiar with the language of computer programs, this is the right book to get the most from Word. You can use most of the hacks in the book, even if you know nothing about VBA because the explainations and examples are so well done... All in all, it is a very useful book that a makes Word more productive."
--Bettie Cummings Cook, SW Indiana PC Users Group, July 2005

"Even if you are not, however, a 'power user,' a copy of Word Hacks belongs on the reference shelf of every organization that considers Microsoft Word its word-processing standard. Consider that the twenty-five dollar list price is the equivalent of one hour of a professional's time, an hour wasted on thrashing through the interface trying to figure out how to 'Revert to the Saved Version' (Hack 5) or 'Create a Custom Text Watermark' (Hack 24). A couple of bucks well spent, in my estimation."
--Epinions.com, January 2005

"If your livelihood depends on using Word in the WinTel environment, and you are allowed to use macros without them somehow getting compromised by malware, this book will pay for itself in no time."
